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!

Backed Into A Corner -- Thank God

The capacity to respond to adversity with faith and gratitude is not limited to spiritual "superheroes." Choosing Gratitude - Nancy Leigh DeMoss Precarious Position. Many times we find ourselves in a place where we would rather not be and our desire may be to run and hide. However, running and hiding may not be viable options and are probably not what God is asking of us in the current situation. The problems and issues we will face in life vary greatly from health, to relationship/marriage, finances, to the stress of looking for a job, or maybe like Job, we might have lost everything -- family and possessions. Often, it is when we have done everything in our human power to ameliorate our situation and fail miserably that we remember God. photo credit:  cindy47452  via  photopin   cc Powerful Response. When we find ourselves in situations and recognize our only choice is to look up to God we can have victory and relief. When we take the time to thank the Fathe

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 of   grief 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. The Road Less Traveled photo credit:  B Gilmour.  via  photopin   cc Mutual Commitment. Naomi urged Ruth to go home to her mother in Moab hoping that Ruth would find another husband. Ruth refused to leave Naom

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. photo credit: Curtis McCormick via photopin cc The Word Became Flesh God Desires That We Seek Him.
