Seeing the God in your everyday

He stops you at a red light to avoid a bike rider being hit two blocks down, and you curse the sky.

See the God in your day.

He provides a job for a struggling single mother as a checkout cashier. She sees a product that triggers memories of being beaten, pauses to keep it together, and you huff and puff in line because she is too slow.

She is starting a better life for her family.

See the God in your day.

He gave an elderly man a good day so he could leave his house for the first time in weeks. Each step causes pain throughout his body. You whiz around him in the store with your cart because you are in a hurry.

His independence brings him joy.

See the God in your day.

The kids are running around the house, screaming because you are cooking and not paying attention to them.

You have a house. You have food. Your children are healthy. Your children are safe.

See the God in your day.

You are stuck in traffic during rush hour on the way home from work. You tailgate and curse the person in front of you.

You are employed.

See the God in your day.

He made it rain during soccer practice, so it was canceled. You complain on Facebook that practice is canceled AGAIN. He did it for a family on your team that needed a break.

They got what they needed.

See the God in your day.

Every moment in your life is like an iceberg. You see and experience either a few beautiful views or hard and jagged edges. What you don’t see is the depth of the moment and how it is affecting others. Practicing to see the God in your day is about realizing every moment is orchestrated by God. You don’t need to understand it, you just need to believe it.

You are in a hurry. You need to stop at the store. You get a fabulous parking spot and there is no line at the checkout.

See the God in your day.

You are in a hurry. You stop at the store. You see an elderly woman loading up her groceries. You stop to help.

She doesn’t feel invisible to the world for a moment.

See the God in your day.

You see a teenage boy with slumped shoulders, walking your way. You hold you head up, shoulders back, look him in the eye and smile.

That was the only smile he will get today.

See the God in your day.

Your little one isn’t listening again. You don’t have it in you, but you sit and snuggle instead of doing your chores.

He feels all of your attention on him.

See the God in your day.

Your husband comes home from work.

He is home. He is safe. He is employed.

See the God in your day.

The parking lot attendants at church steered you towards a crappy parking spot.

You have the right to practice religion freely.

See the God in your day.

Making an effort to see the God moments in my day reminds me that I am not alone. That everything is not about me. It helps me be grateful for minor uncomfortable moments because there is always a blessing hidden inside if you look hard enough.

I know understanding the fact that God is in every detail of your life may be hard. “How could that even be?”, you ask. There are millions of people on this earth. How could God be paying attention to everything? Great news. You do not have to understand in order to believe. We just have to chose to believe.
