I don’t always see God ~ by susan werthem

We have owls that live in our community.  Many times my husband will point one out to me in the tree in front of our house and I will have no clue where it is. I just cannot see it!!

Sometimes my relationship with God can be like that…He’s there, but I just don’t see Him.

I don’t mean literally “see” Him, but see His plan, His direction, His presence…

Today my husband pointed out an owl on the fence across the street. At first I did not see it.

And then as I walked closer he came into focus.

I quietly walked toward him and stood still.

And then I was blessed to see him face to face. Image

I believe that is the way I need to be with God…standing still, quietly walking in His direction…and if I do this, I will see Him. I will see His Plan. I will be aware of His presence.

“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
24 but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23-24 NIV)

I know God has a new and special plan for me…I am not sure what it is, but I believe He is beginning to reveal His plan. I CAN”T WAIT TO SEE WHAT IT IS!!!

Blessings, Susan

    1. Patty, I am humbled by your words. It is all God.
      I will sit and ask God for direction and then the words and thoughts come.
      I wanted to speak to God’s wisdom today – It just seemed like the right topic – Owl=Wisdom. But as you see God took me in a different direction. Thanks so much. Blessings
