Daily..that is the way we truly live. We may think that we don’t because we either spend time looking to the future or remembering the past. The truth is life is lived day by day. Each day is a unique adventure that unfolds as we live it. We can plan our day or feel like it is planned for us by others. But within each day things may happen that no one planned. We can be surprised by the color of the sky.. by an unplanned conversation..an encouraging email..something we did not expect. God likes to interrupt our plans with moments that reveal His presence. It is up to us to look for these things..to desire them..to make room for them.
I can be very goal oriented .. I had to teach myself to be more flexible… to be more hopeful..to expect the unexpected..to know that God will surprise me. As I walk through each day with a sense of anticipation.. instead of dread ( something that seems to come naturally to me) He never fails to bring something special that reminds me He is with me and He knows me intimately. He wants to do the same thing for you.. to sneak up on you and give you the unexpected..to bless you with small things that no one but He knows. Keep your eyes open for the way He shows up and the signs that He is near. You won’t regret it!
“For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. with His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
