I never realized how many words come to me when I have time to sit in the silence and rest. Being out in Oklahoma with silence and peace and no busyness of life has been so refreshing for me. No wonder hundreds of blogs came out of my heart at a time when I had more time to reflect on my life and what God was doing. And now I’m lucky to have one thing to write about a month. I think that calls for some evaluating of what I am filling my life with.
This really has me wondering if I am truly noticing the God moments. I KNOW they are there! But am I missing them? Sometimes I catch myself thinking back on my years away and how many God moments I had then… “boy did He show up on a daily basis back then…”
But it’s not any different today. GOD SHOWS UP EVERY DAY!! Am I just too distracted to notice the God moments? Am I too busy to hear when He is speaking to me? Am I too worried about what the day holds to really spend time listening?
I get it… life has many things to worry about. School. Work. Dishes. Grocery Shopping. Feed the dog. Workout?? (No time for that today). But where do the God moments fit in with this busy To Do List?
I don’t think it is enough to reflect on past God moments… although they were many! Of course we are to remember all that God has done in our life. But what about now? We have to live in the present. If we’re not having God moments today than it is possible we’re not living with God in this moment!
So the question I’m asking myself right now is “what needs to change?” GOD IS HERE! So why am I not experiencing Him EVERY DAY?
Time to prioritize. Time to know Him deeper. Time to “Draw near to Him so He will draw near to me.” (James 4:8)
Every so often I think we need to check ourselves and ask God to reveal the things that are blocking our God moments. He desires that we know Him. He desires that we experience Him. He desires to give us moments close to His heart. Therefore we ought to desire the same things.
