Our lives are made up of moments. Some of them are exciting, special times that we long for and anticipate. Others are difficult or even devastating experiences when we know life will never be the same. I think most of our moments make up the day-to-day routines of life that can seem mundane or just ordinary.
I’ve learned, however, that every day of our lives can actually be filled with amazing moments when God reveals Himself to us and does something in us and through us.
God created everything. Everything we see around us, God had his hand in. There are small little miracle moments occurring all the time all around us. The trick is to notice them. It can be really easy to get caught up in our routine and have our focus solely on what we are doing and miss these special moments.
Sometime we need to just slow down our lives just a little bit and take the time to notice these wonders around us. It can be things that are so beautiful and so simple. A kitten nursing on mom, a bird drinking from a puddle, a person holding the door for a stranger, a beautiful rainbow right after a big storm. I think God puts these subtle things out there just to see if we are paying attention. Not every miracle comes as a big production, we just need to train ourselves to see them.
God is amazing! And when we live in Him, following His direction for our lives every moment of every day, we will have the abundant, joy-filled, amazing life Jesus died to give us.
Keep your eyes open and don’t miss the moments!
