You know those moments where you can’t see God working and moving in your life? I’ve been having some of those days, but He showed me something that I want to share with all of you-
God’s fingerprints are all over our lives.
To be honest, the month of October flew by. Road tripping back to California, seeing everybody I had missed for three months. I was busy working on a more focused mission for Relentless Pursuit and starting a community on Facebook.
My plate was full.
Don’t get me wrong, even though it was a good kind of full, there were moments I wondered if I was where I was supposed to be. I seriously questioned if I was doing what Jesus wanted me to do, or if I was pursuing something entirely off the path.
Now, I won’t lie. There were a couple of breakdowns, some frustrating setbacks, and some overwhelming moments where I thought it would be easier to go the normal route.
But as I reflected on the month of October, I noticed the things that I couldn’t see in the hard moments.
That’s typically what happens, isn’t it? Once we leave a situation, we can see what we were missing while we are right in the middle of it.
I saw Jesus confirm the path I was questioning. He whispered confirmation that I am doing what He asked me to do. I was encouraged in ways I wish I could share with you that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
As I was writing an Instagram post, in hopes of encouraging one of you, something clicked (as it usually does!).
In the middle of sharing my heart, I recognized that God’s fingerprints were all over the past month.
In the good things, in the hard things, in the moments where I was convinced I had it all wrong.
I saw Him in my quiet mornings, in the sunrises and the sunsets.
He revealed that He was in the big things and small things.
And I decided that it’s something that I need to do more often- take a step back and look for His fingerprints. Because otherwise I will keep missing them.
So for November, this is what I’m going to try and do, and I want to challenge you to do it with me.
It doesn’t matter if you want to do it right before bed or in the middle of a crazy day, or in the early mornings before the world is awake- but whenever you choose to do it, take a step back and look at how His fingerprints are all over your life. Because I guarantee they are everywhere, we just need to look for them.
