“We do not remember days, we remember moments.” Cesare Pavese
I have been trying every day to find at least one “God moment” to focus on. Now, don’t get me wrong, of course every moment is a God moment in a sense. But, to me, “God moments” are those moments when God really comes alive for me, when fingerprints of his grace and power are all over this world, when I am so deeply convicted of my faith that I want to jump up and down with excitement and tell the whole world. In those moments, I am totally in awe and honestly cannot find the words to express how great our God is. Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of life and focus so much on WHAT I do that I forget WHY I do it and WHO I do it for. Focusing on “God moments” reminds me WHY I live my life the way I do and WHO I live it for.
Well, today was one big long gigantic “God moment.” I couldn’t pick just a moment, I don’t know that I could even pick a favorite. It’s a toss up between watching from afar a struggling 27 year old patiently teach a crazy hyper 7 year old boy how to play the ukulele, hearing of a 19 year old homeless man in our church mumble under his breath “there really are nice people in this world,” seeing an 18 year old very pregnant girl devour 4, 5, 6 hot dogs along with pizza and cookies, and honestly the list could go on. And seriously, God so blessed me today that I got to experience all of those “God moments” and more. Reflecting on it all I am honestly nearly moved to tears of joy for the first time in a long time. Our God is so amazingly good. Contrary to the quote above, today is one day I will definitely remember. But, I will remember it in moments, in “God moments.”
Do you take note of the “God moments” in your life? I pray his amazing power and grace is real to you and consumes your life.
