Stepping Back To See The View

Posted on February 26, 2015 in General Ministry, Management, MMI, Patient Stories, Programs, Volunteering | 0 comments

We spend a lot of our time trying to live each day, handle issues at work, and also the challenges at home.  We become so engrossed in all of these activities that sometimes we forget to take a step back and realize all that is really going on around us.  The most important aspect to taking this step back is to see how God is working in our lives and those around us.  It’s very important to never forget that God is in control and we should never get in the way of the plans He is implementing.

Show us God

I know this concept may be different for some, but the truth is that we are empowered by God with gifts He has given.  Not one of us received gifts through our own merits, He has given us our skill and we are then charged to make the best of these gifts.  So how do we do this and not screw it up?  Welcome to life!  God has provided us some clear guidance in this area in His “User Manual” known at The Bible. Jesus was sent to this earth to help teach us and drive home God’s message.  We are to seek out the Meek, the Poor, the Lame, and the Mute and give them a voice.  We are also charged to seek God’s guidance through prayer often.  Many do just this, while other’s say we do this but never seem to get an answer to our need.  Let me assure you, God hears you and the answer may be a lot closer than you think.

Have you taken the time to look for God’s guidance in your life?  Take a step back right now, get quiet and just think about all the blessings that surround you.  Take a moment too to determine what really is important in your life.  Is that getting the priority it deserves?  Have you gotten off track and are spending way too much time trying to push the snowball uphill, so to speak?  Don’t feel bad, we all do it.  The key is that you come to realize that you are getting off track and get back in line with your real purpose while on this earth.  You have gifts.  Gifts that make people around you better for you being in their lives.  Don’t stop there, however, as living in your own comfort zone is not all that is available to you.  Take a step out of your own world and see all that is available to you.  God is at work, but you have to take a moment to see it.

It is my prayer that you will take a moment, right now, right here, to take that step back and open your eyes.  Look past your own environment and see all that is happening around you.  God is working miracles right there, but you haven’t taken the time to get out of the way to see it for yourself.  This is a very important concept that we all must take the time to understand.  God loves you, me, and everyone on this planet.  He has also given each of us the intelligence and skill to see it for ourselves and its up to us to look for Him at work.  Get out of the way and check out all that God is doing in your life and the lives of others.  The view is amazing!
