A Holy mystery - God at work

Lori Somerville Luke 7:16 (MSG).
Thursday 1/7/10

S: They all realized they were in a place of holy mystery, that God was at work among them...

O: Blind eyes see. God didn't just suddenly move. He had been moving since the beginning but they couldn't see it, weren't aware of it.

A: Am I aware of what God is doing in my life? Do I too suffer from blindness? Am I too distracted by what's going on in the physical to see what God is doing all around me? The more I focus my eyes on the prize (Jesus) the more I begin to see HIM at work all around me - at home, at work, at the grocery store. I don't believe in coincidences....if God puts someone in my path today HE has something for I going to pay attention or am I going to be too blind to see? Missed opportunities are everywhere. When I come face to face with Jesus I don't want to see missed opportunities in my life - I want to see opportunities where God was able to use me to touch a life, make a difference.

P - Open wide my spiritual eyes today Lord God. Remind me that I too reside in a place of holy mystery - that 2010 will be a year of Holy mystery if I keep my eyes focused on you. Shield me from distraction of any kind Father. Move me Lord. Use me Lord. You are on the move and I want to be present for every second.

  1. I love this Lori! Yes! It is so easy to miss opportunities. Open our eyes Lord, we don't want to miss what You are us, through us, around us...we are Your vessels. Pour in so we can be dumped wherever You desire!
