It has been an interesting week. A week of struggle and a week of success.
You see I really want to make a difference in this world. I want my life to count. But sometimes when I’m stuck in the mundane ( you know laundry, cooking, cleaning, homework) I wonder….
I mean I want to see faith move mountains. I want to see the amazing hand of God do the impossible. I long to see His glory displayed for all to see.
But when your busy going about the everyday, if you aren’t careful you miss it.
And this is where I was this past week. So focused on some huge event, that I failed to see the little things God is doing everyday.
For you see, God is in the big things, but He is also in the little, minute details. He displays His glory at every sunrise and sunset. His hand is there each and every day as our family goes about out daily duties. And He is working even when I can’t see what He is doing.
As I struggled longing for something more, the Lord spoke in His still small voice. “Be faithful to what I’ve told you. Feed my sheep, one sheep at a time.”
Sometimes God shows Himself in grand ways. Ways for all to see. But most of the times He is visible in the small things. In the daily grinds. Yet, we miss it, we miss Him. While we search for the bigger, greater.
I’ve realized this past week that I don’t want to miss Him in my search for more. I want to recognize His hand daily in the everyday.
I don’t want to be so busy searching for more, that I miss now.
He is here, He is now.
How about you? Are you living for tomorrow or content with today? Do you see the hand of God in your day-to-day or have you missed Him?
Oh may we faithfully recognize His daily presence in our lives. Acknowledging Him and giving Him glory for the daily insignificant.
For nothing is insignificant in God’s eyes, every detail matters. And if it matters to Him, shouldn’t it matter to us?
What has God shown you to do now? Are you doing it? Let us be faithful to these things, because then and only then will He give us more.
