Have you noticed how God shows up, and He shows off? He shows up when I awaken in the morning and kiss a loving husband goodbye. He shows up as I sit down with my Bible and a cup of coffee.and look out the window at a breathtaking sunrise.
I looked out the window at a breathtaking sunrise. Oh yes, I saw this amazing sunrise this week. What a glorious, glorious, breathtaking moment. And THEN over and over again He shows up! He shows off for me and you every single day if we just take a moment to savor all He has created and all He has done.
He makes an ordinary day a marvelous “extra-ordinary” day when I walk outside and see this beautiful tulip. WHY! It’s a glorious, God moment because my Dad planted tulips around our pool over 20 years ago, and they still bloom. This year I was not sure they would because of all the remodeling around the pool, but God. Here’s the first one and looks like more are on the way.
He shows up in the most spectacular ways like today as I saw this at my neighbor’s house.
He shows up in the storms. He can calm the storms. I lay in bed when the thunder came on Wednesday, and found myself saying, “I hear the rolling thunder and thy power throughout the universe displayed”. How great He is!
He shows up in the evening, when I walk outside to see a moon with clouds beginning to cover it.
Come see Jesus. Be blinded by His displays of beauty all around you. Don’t miss Him today. Be still and know Him.
Ask God to show up today. Ask Him to show up in your dark, weak and sad moments. He offers hope. He offers peace.
Why are we so surprised when He shows up? Why are we surprised when He goes above and beyond what we have prayed for and about? When God shows up in the midst of all life’s circumstances, the impossible becomes a possibility – a miracle right in front of us.
We have opportunities every single day of our lives to see Him “show up” in our lives, our homes, our jobs, our finances, our churches, our health and in nature. Delve in His Word today. Let Him write it on your heart. Every word, every comma, every period has significance. Open it up, choose one verse and see how the Word comes alive in your hearts.
He makes an ordinary day “extra-ordinary” when I pause and thank Him I have a house to clean, clothes to fold, dishes to wash, food to cook, bills that I can pay, and yes, even those flower beds that have to be weeded.
Has He made His presence known to you today? Has He shown you a glory moment today? Is He your hope? I would love to hear your thoughts.
