I've been reminded this week of the great truth that God is working all around us, all the time, sometimes even when we don't realize it. When folks approach us to ask us about our faith or engage in a spiritual conversation, there is no doubt that the Holy Spirit is at work within those moments. When we experience a very vivid image of what we are to do in a particular conundrum or situation, perhaps God is at work within our own lives and hearts. I'm reminded of the words of Jesus in John 3:8.
"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
Like a sailboat in the wind, it is not uncommon for God to lead us into the most unlikely and life-changing conversations and situations, even amidst our seemingly mundane daily lives.
Keep an open mind and an open heart this week, and may God continue to lead you into holy encounters with an eternal impact.
