I have been trying to be more God-aware (if that is a real phrase) in just the daily happenings of life. I have been challenged by some authors I have read this year to see/hear/experience God within our daily activities. God wants to speak to us; He does speak to us…we just have to listen. I don’t always do real well with that, but I am trying.
He is always showing up – or at least, I think He is trying to show up – in our lives. Through a prompting in our hearts to do something, an encouraging comment left by someone on Facebook (can God really use Facebook to speak??), through unexpected gifts and various other means. I do want to be more God-aware.
This past week I was doing something quite mundane – ironing my shirt (I don’t like wrinkles) – and felt like God impressed something on my heart. Trying to be more God-aware, I’ve been trying to sort through what exactly He is trying to say. It’s both challenging and cool at the same time. Imagine, GOD – the God of the universe- is trying to get our attention. Are we aware?
