I don’t know about you but I have had times in my life when I have felt disconnected from God. That feeling of connection can be a strong need in us. Sometimes to feel comfort or to be part of something bigger. Perhaps it’s that need to be loved by a heavenly father or simply to know you are not alone. what ever it is this feeling can get us wondering how to re-connect or plug back in.
For me I know i can start to wonder where God is by looking to see what he is doing in me and in the life of my family and I have heard people say “where is God blessing you right now?”
But I have realised that sometimes this is the wrong question to be asking. We had a meeting with a few people today that will profoundly change our lives. So our “blessings” today did not come from God doing things directly in our lives but through people who have listened and responded to his prompting.
So the question that I need to be asking is not, “what is God doing in my life?” but “what is God doing?”
It’s a subtle shift and the outcome was a real blessing to us as a family, but my eyes have moved from my life to a God focused outlook and this is important.
