“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” - Colossians 3:17

This past winter was the first winter that I owned my own house. I decided that I wanted to set up a bird feeder on the back deck, so I could feed the birds. However, after I had set up the feeder, a few days passed and I had yet to see any birds eating. I was bummed.

A few days later, I had a chaotic Monday at work. It was one of those days where everything that could go wrong was and I felt a million pulls in thousands of directions and just didn’t know how I could go on. In my chaos, I had to run home on my lunch break to get dinner started for the night ahead. While home, I glanced outside at my bird feeder, expecting to see nothing. However, I was instead gifted the sight of two little chickadees - my favorite of all birds!

Now, out-of-tune-with-God Kacey would have just thought that was cool, but in-tune-with-God Kacey saw that moment for what it was.It made me stop and give Him my attention and thanksgiving.  I knew then, that God was telling me that He was with me and I was going to make it through the day.

For me, my “God moments” (as I like to call them) often come not in huge ways but in small little moments. I know they happen daily but when I’m not paying attention and looking for God, I don’t notice them or attribute them to Him. Instead of thanking Him, I merely think “that’s cool!”

I know that when I look for Him, I notice that I truly am surrounded by a million blessings and love notes from Him every day. It’s in the small things - like a good friend asking how you’re doing, a beautiful sunset, a new baby giggling, or two little birds sitting on your bird feeder - that He catches our attention and tells us He loves us.

I challenge you today, sisters, to look for the “God moments” in your life. Thank Him for the little things and see that He is with you every day.

Thank you for reading! As always, you’re in my imperfect prayers :)
