Recently, a friend suggested that I take time at the end of my day to ask myself “Where did I see Jesus today?”
At night, I climb in my bed, snuggle under the covers and let myself think back over my day. (On the nights that I remember. No guilt is allowed if I forget!) 🙂
Most nights at least one thing pops into my mind almost immediately.
I don’t write these down. I just reflect on how I saw Jesus and silently celebrate His presence.
There have been a few times where the thing that popped into my mind included something that happened with someone else. And when I’ve taken the time to share with the other person that I saw Jesus through something they said or did, it has been very special. Who doesn’t like hearing that Jesus was seen in them?
I’ve always known God was working in my life and in others’ too. I just haven’t been that great at looking for it on a daily basis.
But now that I’m starting to look for it more, I am learning to expect it. I’ve realized over the last week that I have begun noticing His presence more during my day. I still reflect on it at night, but I’m getting better at noticing Him in the middle of my day.
Most of the time, it comes in the smallest things.
I see Jesus in conversations with friends.
I see Jesus in my husband dancing silly. Really any time I see him happy.
I see Jesus when I laugh so hard I cry.
I see Jesus when my kids play nice together. 🙂
God is with us. There is evidence of his presence in our lives everywhere.
We…I just have to look for it.
Where do you see Jesus in your day?
