As I read the news, watch the Twitter feeds, read my friend’s Facebook posts I realize we are missing something.
Our eyes are focused on what is wrong, what is going on around us and we fail to climb the ladder to see an amazing God working in our mess.
We are missing the glory of God’s grace, His plan, His care and His love as we focus on the junk going on around us.
We are missing it, even in the midst of all the junk.
We see the giants and miss the David.
We see an ocean of despair and forget about a God who parts it.
We focus on what we lack and never bother to ask a good God to fill it.
We grieve over a loss and never ask for comfort from the only one who can help us.
We hear the noise and never find time to listen for His voice.
We are missing God in the midst of the madness.
Jesus said, “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”
It is the most profound question ever asked!
Will we keep our focus on and faith in a good and loving God even as our world crumbles around us? Or will we cower in fear and bitterness at all that is going wrong?
How do we forget so easily a God who made the Universe, who died for us, who loves us more than we can know?
We are missing HIM even as we sit in church, sing the songs and hear the sermon.
We are missing the God, the glory, the only hope we have in a world-shaking at the core.
Today, as I attempt to “be still and know that He is God,” I realize I am letting the world make me fearful
I don’t want to miss it. I don’t want to live the rest of my life being fearful of things I cannot control.
I want to live life with the confidence that God is in control!!!
I want to re-commit my heart to believing and trusting that my God has got this.
I need to learn to trust Him in a more meaningful way.
How about you? Or… are you going to miss it?
