Day 12: God Happening
IT happened again
because GOD is always HAPPENING.
The problem is if we aren't still enough
we don't get to experience
and SEE GOD doing what HE does best.
HE IS in the sunrise because HE created the sun.
HE IS in the tree because HE created the tree.
HE IS in my fingers right now as I type these words
because HE created me.
No one wishes themselves into existence.
Think about it.
GOD made you HAPPEN.
I am in awe because GOD has made me be STILL
because I asked HIM to slow me down so I can
HEAR HIM over the chatter of my own mind.
I asked HIM to slow me down so I can
SEE HIM beyond my circumstances.
And then I asked HIM
take my mind, my heart, and my soul,
which STILLS me from myself.
And when you ASK GOD HE answers
. As I think about all the times when I was STILL,
it was in those moments that I experienced GOD HAPPENINGS.
Whether it was meeting my new sister in CHRIST in the grocery story.
Only GOD would intertwine relationships in the bleach aisle.
GOD had slowed me down enough
to experience HIM through others who love HIM.
She breathes HIS TRUTH.
She always points me to JESUS
when I am pointing to myself.
Whenever we are together
GOD HAPPENS as we experience HIM together.
As we were having dinner and praying multiple times,
one of the servers came up to us
because he saw us pray.
because GOD HAPPENED in his life.
Ezekiel is his name
and oh he beams JESUS.
He shared HIS GOD story
with tears in his eyes
as he gave all glory to GOD
for the possible that GOD did in the midst of all impossibility.
Oh I am still in awe of
GOD how HE is always HAPPENING
and all HE asks is for us to be STILL enough
so we don't miss him.
Oh my friend
BE STILL in the midst of whatever you are doing
because GOD IS HAPPENING all around us.
I have tears dripping down my face right now
because of how GOD never stops dripping HIS FAVOR
and HIS BLESSINGS,
whether it is in a sunrise or a sunset
or having me meet a woman in a grocery store who loves JESUS
or a waiter who loves JESUS too.
I am too old to waste my time anymore
looking for what I want when I want it
when GOD continues to shower me with more of
I thank HIM for my fingers right now
that can express what is on my heart,
the heart that HE created
the day HE created me.
So will you join me and
PUT HIM IN YOUR STORY
because HE PUT YOU IN HIS STORY
“‘Love the Lord your GOD, ___________,
with all your heart, ___________, and with all your soul
and with all your mind
___________" (Matthew 22:37).
And then you will
KNOW that GOD is always HAPPENING.
Can you SEE HIM?
Oh you will
and all you have to do is
"STILL" (listen to the song below)
