Unaware

How often am I unaware of what is happening around me? 
This question came up as I was having dessert with some friends.



On a snowy night as we sat together at a restaurant eating pie, chocolate sundaes and anything else rich and gooey a question was asked of my friend, "Are you from England?" Puzzled, we all looked at her and wondered why this was asked. My friend giggled and politely responded "no, but why do you ask?" The woman went on to explain that she noticed my friend using a fork and knife to gather together and eat her cheesecake and it reminded her of the way the English eat.

Here's the funny thing. Only when she is eating does she use her left hand. Even more humorous was the fact that her husband of over 20 years had never noticed that she did this! 

How often do we do this with God? We miss the everyday occurrences that point us to our creator. 

We can fail to see
His hand 
as 
He leads and guides us
 into His plan
 at 
His time 
and
 In His way.


Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you— majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders? “You stretch out your right hand, and the earth swallows your enemies. In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling. 
Psalm 15:11-13


Today, as you 
Eat and Drink
Work and Rest
Sit and Stand
Laugh and Cry


Remember to notice the one who notices you. 2 Timothy 2:19

Father, May I never miss your touch, your leading, your whisper. May I always see you in the joy and the pain, the laughter and the sorrow. Reveal yourself more and more to me. I want to see you more and more!
