In the midst of chaos, uncertainty, and busyness, I am coming to realize that God touches your life and mine at will. We do not control Divinity. Divinity sees us at our best and in our worst, offering help and guidance. In my experience, there are no filters on the ways God reaches out. Divinity’s hand extends to the powerful and the weak, those that look good as well as those that do not. While some appear to get more help than others, I am beginning to think that the reason is only one of eyes. There are some that see the hand and hear the voice; others do not.
For me, the breakthrough came in an unexpected way, literally. In a conversation with what most faith systems would call a non-believer, I found myself hearing God’s voice. I realize that admission sounds odd. I could rephrase my explanation. In a casual conversation with a friend, I heard words of truth. It was more than facts as accurate as they were. It was more that insight as powerfully revealing as they were. It was timely, insightful, and hope-filled words that Divinity had tailored for me. I knew it as I heard the words.
As I stepped away from the conversation, I realized that God is actively talking in my life. I do not think I am particularly special. I think God speaks to every child in the family – including you by the way!
The insight did not come with any sense of the negative. The past is already history. We can learn from it and in the moment at hand do something different. For me, it is a fresh awareness that there are fresh opportunities in your life and mine. We have the freedom to do something with it. David’s old words ring true in fresh new ways; “Real help comes from God. Your blessing clothes your people!” (Psalm 3.8)
For me, it is time to do something with the gifts of the day. God is willing to be a partner. Together, the impossible is possible.
