Its so easy to give up. As per my previous blog last week..
When you look around at the world we live in, its so easy 'not' to see God....But....
on the other hand, it is also easy to see God as well.
Instead of looking at the mundane things everyday, God is in the small things. For example, Look at a flower, look at the beauty of it, its colour and perfection.
But we get so stuck into our daily routine that we forget that these small things even exist. We don't take the time to really know people well, know their real personality. Instead we 'touch base' with them and see a person, maybe in a stressful situation at work and our experience of that person is one of shortness, irritability and possible anger (it depends).
What I am saying is that we experience people, things and life situations in our rush and we don't actually get to slow down and really know the back round of something.
Its like we get to know 10% of everything and we never get to know what is going on.
With this thought in mind, we tend to give up because we don't see what people are really like and we don't get to see God in anything, because it is easier to carry on.
Here is a video that really started the tears running, but if we can treat everything with the same 'passion' that this young boy has and the faith that this little guy has, it would completely change the way we think about the little things in life.
God is in the small things:
When my daughter comes running up to me and says "Daddy, you are the best and I love you so much"... that's a small thing that makes a big difference. God is in just that sentence. Because she really means that.
When I look at a bud of a rose start to form on the very thorny, spiky and ugly looking stem of a rose bush and then one morning looking at the absolute beauty of what that rose has when open and displaying its beauty to the world, its a small things that just oozes God.
I Attach another video from Angus Buchan. He was talking to a whole crowd of people in the En-Gedi desert in the Holy land, a place that never gets rain and wind is a scarcity. While he is preaching about the exact time when the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, A mighty rushing wind and rain pouring from heaven. Take a look here and notice that where there are small things - God is.
