Do We See?

“But as for me, God’s presence is my good. I have made the Lord God my refuge, so I can tell about all You do.”  Psalm 73:28

I’ve been reminded over the last 24 hours of the power of God’s presence. I’ve also been reminded of how, sometimes we fixate on the wrong things and, in doing so, we miss the presence of God… Himself.

We see a beautiful sunset, but do we see His Hand?

Do we praise the One who stretched out His glory across the horizon for our eyes to enjoy?

We hold a tiny baby in our arms and watch him sleep, but do we see the righteous right Hand that crafted his little fingers, little toes, and little nose?

Do we see that Hand at work?

The presence of God

everywhere we look.

Do we have eyes to perceive?

Do we have minds to believe?

Do we have hearts to receive?

Oh, Lord, I do believe. Help my disbelief!

After finishing this post, I quickly got ready to take my son to his summer football workouts.  I put the key in the ignition and these words greeted me on the car radio.

Let us experience the glory of Your goodness”  ~ Holy Spirit, Francesca Battistelli
