Helen Keller once quoted, “I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God-made world, not a man-made world.”
Even though Helen Keller was both blind and deaf, she made astounding accomplishments in her life. From writing many books to earning a bachelor of arts degree.
She saw the beauty of this life in her darkness. She knew that God was with her even before she knew a language.
To us that could seem impossible. To be blind and deaf. To have so many difficulties to face.
But Helen Keller took it another way. She chose to see God in every little thing.
Finding God in everyday life can be difficult.
Our days seem to rush by. Life gets busy. You have work and responsibilities. Stopping to see God in your life will just take to much time.
Acts 17:27 says “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us.”
God is with us everyday. Even in the days we don’t see Him.
Taking time to see the little things that the Lord does for you will benefit you greatly. Stopping to say a quick prayer of thanksgiving will change the rest of your day.
God wants you to seek him with all of your heart (Jeremiah 29:13). He wants you to take time to find Him in your busy life.
He is waiting to have a relationship with you. He is waiting for you to seek an intimacy with Him.
Even in your darkness, even in your troubles take time to seek God. Stop and notice the little things. Take time to rest in His love.
In His amazing love,
What ways can you see God in your everyday life? How has resting in Him benefited you in your life?
