On my prayer list, I have things in 3 categories: Thankful, Others and Myself. Under the Thankful column, number 1 is this: Thank You for this day and what You will do. This morning, I got stuck there. What will He do? Will I notice it? Will my day go by without me noticing anything to give Him credit for? Will He do something right in front of me and I just say “Cool!”, not giving thanks for the Him showing it to me?
The truth is that many things will happen during our day that we could thank Him for and we will not notice. In the grand scheme of things though, things are brought to our attention at times to guide our focus, give us direction and reveal our purpose to us and others. While millions of events are happening around us, only a select few per day will be for guiding you alone and the intensity of their impact is determined by your receptiveness.
Therein comes the wall, the callous, the absorption of meaningful things into the past that we may never see. Sometimes just knowing that you need to heighten your sensitivity, adjust your radar, is enough.
Look today for ways to be mindful of things that would otherwise go unnoticed. Even if you have to schedule that time today, even if it is just 10 minutes, find that time…and give thanks to Him for those things.
