God in the details..part 1

One thing that I am asking God to teach me lately is not to miss Him in the details. I don't know if it is the change of scenery, the change of schedule, the extra rest, or a combination of all three, but man, I cherish vacations because they help me to see God in the midst of many details of everyday life that I know I have missed time and time again.

This week, I have resolved to learn to see God in the details of my day to day life. I could go on and on about why I miss this and the things in my past that contribute to my struggle with this, but I will spare you all and save it for another day :) Just know, this is going to be a BIG one for me. I do not want to miss one thing God is speaking to me, one way He is loving me, or one lesson He is teaching me.

In order to get things started on the right foot, I thought I would post over the next few days some of my every day details that I have seen God in this week:

1. Children worshipping. I know the pics are a poor depiction of this story, but we went to a church event Friday night, and I noticed that Jack kept moving away from people (NOT AT ALL like Jack)...I soon realized that he wanted to be alone to worship. Here he is raising his hands in his own world while we sang, "How Great is our God."

The gymnasium where this event was held was packed with children. Looking out from the top row of the bleachers and seeing children raising their hands in worship...took my breath away. Even children understand that we serve a God that is worthy of our worship.

Nothing captures my heart like seeing my kids love God! This is what it's all about, raising our children to know, love and serve God. You captured a precious moment on camera!
