Adventures in Finding God

Moments With a Stranger

“We are missing so much about the people all around us.”
— Anonymous

Just now was one of those moments when I found myself looking at a video shared on Facebook and wondering how I’m going to allow it to change my life. And so I share it with you, because, at some point I was a stranger to you. With God’s grace, love and mercy, may we reach out to strangers and even if for a few moments. It is amazing to hear what the people in this video have to say AFTER a few moments with a stranger.


He Whispers

“What I like in a good author isn’t what he says, but what he whispers.”
-Logan Pearsall Smith

Wow! I read this and thought immediately about God:

1 Kings 19:12 – After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.

Job 26:14 – “And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”

Isaiah 29:4 – Brought low, you will speak from the ground; your speech will mumble out of the dust. Your voice will come ghostlike from the earth; out of the dust your speech will whisper.

In our fast-moving, media-rich world, it is so easy to let the soft voices go. Sometimes our attention can only be given to the loudest voice. And perhaps in times like these is even more important to steal away to a quite place, so we can hear ourselves think, here ourselves pray…hear God whisper.

What will God whisper to you today?


Hungry and Cold

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.”
-Dwight D. Eisenhower

Something about these words struck me yesterday morning. Could not quite put my finger on it then, so I set them aside thinking I’d get back to them at some point.


Making Of A Champion

So, this morning I’m zipping through Facebook as I try to do a couple times a day. And one of my friends shared a video. What caught my eye was that it had Russell Wilson of the Seahawks in the still shoot, and the title was “Making of a Champion”. Little did I know what the video was about–how powerful it is and its relevance.

Today, let us go out and help God make champions. What that means is going to look different to each of us, but that is by the grace of God, and by His design.
