I find it easy to get caught up in my day to day life and forget about the awesomeness of God. Routine takes over. Prayer and scripture keep me in touch with Him. It’s my sense of awe and wonder that wanes. My brain knows, but my heart could use a reminder that God still performs signs and wonders.
My schedule has been extraordinarily full. Spare time for my family has been hard to find let alone time for ministry work. It’s the time of year when I begin preparing my teaching for a women’s ministry I work with (Best Life Ministries). However, I have no time. In fact, my workload and finding time for the things I feel called to has been a constant prayer discussion between God and I. Mostly, I tell Him to show me what to let go of to find needed time, but nothing is apparent. I genuinely feel like I’m in a holding pattern waiting for the next move.
I got to my desk on a Monday morning and there was a letter waiting for me. We have an adjunct faculty who is a great encourager. He often sends cards with excerpts from a book or reading that encourages me to continue on. This time it was a list of scriptures related to change. My teaching next year is on growing through change. My heart leapt. This was exactly what I needed to begin forming the teaching.
3 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. (Hebrews 2:3-4 NIV).
This was exactly the sign and wonder I needed. It was a delightful little gift from God. It reminded me He knows my heart and my needs. It sparked a sense of awe again.
God is at work reminding us of His care for us through little signs and wonders. He uses us to speak truth and love into the lives of others that remind them of Him. He takes joy in delighting His children. That was exactly what I needed, and it’s a great reminder of his love and care for me. Me, a grain of sand in the cosmos.
