What is He doing right now?

Inspired by The Message this morning, Eugene Petersen’s translation of the New Testament in everyday language —

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.  God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”  (Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 6)

Look around and see what God is doing today.

He’s healing Paul, Dale, Lorraine, Erik, Kim and even my annoying bronchial cough.

He’s there in the powerful storms and the cleanup all around the Chicago area.

He is bringing comfort to Jo whose dear kitty passed away on Monday.

He is in the sweet smell of roses and freshly mown grass and bacon frying in the pan.

He even created jellyfish!

Listen to Him in the bird songs and children’s laughter.

Taste His goodness in blueberries and fresh tomatoes and basil.

And when you feel afraid, know that He is with you always with His strong, loving arms holding you close.
