Ann at Holy Experience asked us to share on this Walk with Him Wednesday how we have recently experienced God. And so I rack my brain and search my heart, for some earth shattering, "I will never be the same" moment. But the truth of the matter is, while I have had a few such experiences with God, more often than not His presence and intervention in my life is a lot more "everyday" than that. Like manna*, faithfully given to the children of Israel as their daily sustenance, so is God's presence in my life. I simply don't live, breathe, function, without Him. And like manna, I must live on today's manna-His presence, His love, and His work in my life today. While the memories of the ways I have experienced Him in my life in the past are to be cherished and rememembered, they are not adequate sustenance for today. I need fresh Bread from Heaven in my life each day.
-when I asked God to bring His order to a day that had overwhelmingly too much to do in it,
and everything I needed to do got done
-when I gathered with others at church on Sunday and I felt His heart for people...overwhelming love
-when the church shed tears and prayed together on Sanctity of Life Sunday,
and asked God to help us make a difference for more young mamas and save more babies
-when I spent time with my grandbabies- all three miraculous answers from heaven
-when I took a walk on a blessedly sunny January day and once again saw and gave thanks for
the beauty He has created just for us to enjoy
When I really look, really take notice, I am experiencing God everyday, right here in my real life.
