Observing God in the Everyday Affairs of Life


This is post #100 on this blog. I have never had to look far to realize the benefit of having one focus – being focused on God.

Seeing God’s hand in the everyday affairs of my life is easy. He has always been there for me and He always will be. He cares about the small events of my life as well as the large ones because He is my loving Heavenly Father. If something concerns me, it concerns Him.

Even when I don’t understand what is going on, I know He does. Whether circumstances are pleasant, comfortable, difficult, confusing or painful, I know that He has a purpose for it all.

In these posts, I have observed His hand and have heard His voice

as I read the Bible
as I read other literature – fiction and non-fiction
as I cooked
as I walked, hiked or ran
as I gardened
as I traveled
as I reflected on my family.

The following is from my very first post in May 2011:

“It is so easy for life to get in the way of Life. So many things can occupy our time and thinking that we are tempted to have no focus at all. We just flit from circumstance to circumstance, or thought to thought or day to day, never really being grounded in the reality of the Truth.

One Focus – the only way I can handle all the changes going on in this world is to keep my feet firmly planted on the one foundation that I know is unshakeable and never changes. The love of God is expressed through the person of Jesus Christ, His Son. That Truth is my reality and I hope and pray that it is yours.

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You because he trusts in You (Isaiah 26:3 NKJV).”
