“Your a detail girl”, words often used to describe me ….. Seeing the minute in the big picture is often where I find God speaking and showing me things that I would otherwise miss. So when I seem to miss the details it is a sure sign that I need to seek God deeper.
Have you ever been on a walk through your neighborhood and you notice details that you never see when your driving through those same areas? We live in such a fast past world with “instant everything”, how much are we missing on the fast track of life?
Relationships become distant and even end without us really understanding why. So busy with the perfectly planed, every moment scheduled trip that we don’t take in the smells, sights and sounds that enhance the experience. Our children grow up so fast and we were so busy running them to every activity that we missed out on the memorable moments where real communication happens. We’re so overwhelmed with whatever the latest circumstance is that we overlook the most important things, our relationships ….. Can you relate?
God isn’t impressed with our accomplishments or our busyness, even if we are busy doing good things.
He desires our hearts and our time to focus on Him, for its when we put our foot down to stop the merry-go-round that we can actually see clearly and lend our ear to His voice.
When my life is so busy, spinning around “to do lists” then I am missing the details…. God is in the details …. speaking to us through the butterfly flying by in its delicately designed wings; the smile of a stranger in the grocery store; in the tearful blue eyes of a long time friend as they share their agony with you; the bear hug from your little one;time spent sitting on the porch with a neighbor…. and so many more moments, when you take the time to pay attention to the details…..
We were designed for fellowship, fellowship with the Father and fellowship with others. Fellowship takes time and requires our attention to details, details that matter and make real life memorable and worthy!
Take some time this week to reflect on where God is calling you to pay attention to the little things….
Work on changing your perspective on what is most important, this will look different for each of us and changes as the seasons of our lives change. But, I assure you that God is in the small stuff, He desires for us to fellowship with Him, He loves our praise and worship for Him and our gratitude for all of His gifts and endless blessings…. This kind of relationship requires us to stop spinning with busyness and BE STILL, looking for the details where He is speaking to you.
“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”
Id love to hear where God is speaking to you….
