it’s not randomness

“We should be so one with God that we don’t need to ask continually for guidance…We can all see God in exceptional things, but it requires the growth of spiritual discipline to see God in every detail. Never believe that the so-called random events of life are anything less than God’s appointed order. Be ready to discover His divine designs anywhere and everywhere.”

-Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

 

Nothing in life is random, there's a purpose and a reason for everything that we encounter. That's the reason for this blog: to capture and remember the not so random occurrences, the rich events that make life what it is. 

Because if you look hard enough you’ll see that God really is in the details, orchestrating every event.  My heart’s desire is to put God’s perspective into everything that I encounter.  Is this hard?  Absolutely.  Can I find God in the midst of sick kids, fights with my husband, bounced checks and all the other mundane things of life?  There is no doubt about it that I can, if I look for him.  He’s there to be found, as long as I’m looking.

My life is one of a searcher, a pilgrim, a traveler who is ever moving closer to what God has intended for me.  I’m so glad you’re hear to join me on the ride!

And because they provide me with countless blogging topics I must show you my little family, I think they’re rather cute-don’t you?
