With all of the things going on in my life, it is easy for me to be blinded to the things that God is trying to show me through my day to day routine. With the arrival of Remmy Rozaland McNamara, I feel the need to slow down and look at the things around me.
Remmy started things off with the pondering, did she take her first breath? or did she say the name of God?
Next, I threw a polemic out on Facebook chastising all of us, for feel good (lead by Hollywood) giving to Haiti. I had to explain to a young friend of mine that I wasn’t saying we shouldn’t be giving to help Haiti, but we do a terrible job at helping the poor of this country, and other countries. We can afford it. As I recently was reminded that 8% of the world owns a car. That the amount of ice cream sales in America for a year, we could drill wells and provide clean drinking water to everyone on the planet.
Don’t ask God to feed the hungry when you have plenty of food. We are saved to do good works, not do good works to be saved.
My thoughts then drifted to the vehicle situation, when at times I feel like the psalmist laments in Psalms 13:1-2 and realize that God owns it all. He will prevail, and I will remain open to how He is working in the world.
Things are stirring in my life, I’m not sure how this pans out, but it does seem that good things will happen.
Here’s to you remaining open to how God is working in this world, and that you keep saying His name, even if you don’t believe in Him.
