Sharing is a good thing. Especially, when it involves sharing about the things God has done and is doing in our lives. I can get so caught up in everything bad and negative in my life, instead of recounting the miracles God has done.
Last night at Bible study we did some mighty good sharing. We shared some of the simple, yet profound ways that God reveals His love to us. Everyone went around and shared a special way God has spoken to them.
Each memories was unique and personal, but they all included pieces of creation... rich reds and smoky violets of a sunset... overlooking an emerald carpet of pine from a mountain peak...crashing waves along smooth white pebbles...
You get the idea. God's creation speaks...The mountains and hills will burst into song before You, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands...the skies proclaim the work of His hands...
I long for these moments. Moments of quiet and grace and complete communion with Jesus. Moments removed from the religious hurry of life.
But it is difficult to notice God's character when I am lost in my own nonsensical slurry of thoughts and emotions. I long for a new perspective that is not clouded with me.
I am so grateful for the sovereignty of God. Through each ebb and flow, He is stable. He speaks through our confusion. He remains steadfast in our faltering. He loves continually.
