Sept 23 - Thoughts from Peter

Thoughts from Peter 

September 23rd 

 

Our attention to God is never as high as when we need an answerand need one now!   In the throes of our perception of an emergency, we dial the hotline and hope for an answer on the other end of the line; an answer from someone who is ready to act in our moment of crisis.  Andbe sure, God hears and responds to those prayers.  

If we look around and take stock, we’ll see that God is chiming in and piping up all around us in the most mundane of moments.  Have an eye out for the refreshing spirit and voice of God.  Challenge yourself to seek out God’s nod of direction and glint of hello throughout your usual routine.  As we accumulate those encounters of joy and holiness, they better strengthen our moments of crisis.  When we look out for where God is planting subtle blessings, we are better equipped to love others well in their moments of crisis and need.   

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.  Great is your faithfulness. ~Lamentations 3:22-23
