Where is God?

Our thoughts are many and they are frequent.  We engage in various types of thinking throughout the day.

Thoughts of the morning rush:  How am I going to pay this creditor today? Can my child not get out of bed on time at least one day this year? I wonder if my boss will approve of my presentation. I really need the promotion and the raise to go with it. I hope no one else takes credit for my work today. 

Thoughts of the midday: I must leave work by 5pm to get the kids from daycare and not be charged for extra time. Wait, what are we having for dinner tonight? I don't think I can keep up this diet any longer. I wish she would stop bombarding us with her jewelry catalogs at lunch every day. How can I advance at work and get my boss to notice me? Maybe I'll stay late tonight and really put forth an effort. 

Thoughts of the evening: Figured out dinner, now I need to get all the lunches ready for tomorrow. Maybe I'll just give the kids money and they can buy their lunch. This house is a mess. I need to go to bed. Oh that's right, we promised each other we would spend time watching one of our favorite movies tonight. I hope work goes better tomorrow -- I'm just sick over the whole thing.

In the midst of our day, we will likely at some point feel pressure, uncertainty, stress, worry, or on the flip-side we may be fully enjoying all that life seems to be offering us right now without a care in the world. Whatever your circumstances might be at the present -- Where is God?  Do you intentionally make Him part of your thoughts and by extension, part of your life? After all--


It is He who made the earth by His power,
Who established the world by His wisdom;
And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.
Jeremiah 10:12
Rest assured -- intentionally focusing on Who God Is in the midst of your day will be life changing!

Common Ground: The Road Less Traveled

The Presence of God. Ruth and Naomi found themselves in very trying circumstances after each suffered the loss of a husband and the inescapable grief that accompanies death. Scripture gives us a snapshot into their lives and we get a glimpse of the strong bond of friendship that took place between Ruth and Naomi. Was it the deep sense ofgrief that brought these two women together in a way they had never experienced before? Perhaps these women were drawn to each other because they knew they were “alone” in the world. More importantly, the presence of God is evident by Ruth's response to her mother-in-law. Ruth reminds us and reminded Naomi of God's presence.
The presence of God is the bond that unites our hearts as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Mutual Commitment. Naomi urged Ruth to go home to her mother in Moab hoping that Ruth would find another husband. Ruth refused to leave Naomi; she was committed to Naomi and committed to serving Nao…

The Hope of Christmas ~ The Heart of God

Behold, The virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name "Immanuel," which translated means,  "God With Us."  Matthew 1:23
God With Us. God is not far away from us but with us, desiring to be close, so close that He sent His Son in the form of a man to be "with us."  An act of humility and an act of love directly from the God of the universe. We did not beg for His attention nor did we attempt to ingratiate ourselves into His good graces. God initiated contact with us, with all of the human race. (Philippians 2:8) He entered the sinful world we chose to be part of without reservation, knowing His entrance into this world, would inevitably mean suffering. The God of the universe, perfect in every way, entered this world willingly, knowing He would suffer greatly for me and for you.

Close Calls

For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the Lord our God whenever we call on Him? Deuteronomy 4:7
Sound of the fury or two terriers. There was a time when we had two terriers who were not always fond of each other. Though they were small, they were feisty. I was walking through the kitchen one day when the one terrier upon seeing the other, decided that this was her time to shine and leave her mark. The pearly whites of her teeth began to gleam as she lifted her lip in utter disdain and latched on to her "companion" and would not let go. The usual verbal threats masked in the growling and snarling were not part of this fight; however, the sheer determination to defeat the opponent and win were certain. To say that I was concerned was an understatement. After quite a while of trying to pry the dogs apart and loosen the clenched teeth without success, I finally blurted out, "Jesus, help us!" It was at this exact moment that the one dog release…
