Yesterday I was driving to the gym and thinking I was in sore need of a re-connect with God. I had just finished an email to Jess, who mentioned the importance of God in our recoveries. she had me thinking.
While driving I noticed people at bus stops and in parking lots staring up and pointing at the sky.
‘What can it be?’ I thought. ‘A rainbow? A blimp? A space shuttle launch?’ (I live in Florida) Some sort of eclipse?
All I could see was the setting sun.
At the gym – more people looking up! I stopped a man on his way in.
“Excuse me, do you know why everyone is looking up at the sky?”
He gave me this “Hello Captain Obvious” look and gestured upwards…”Well, Yeah!”
I turned around, looked up and saw this:
Oh. Hi God. There you are. I was just thinking about you…
What a moment.
I mean, you think I would have gotten out of my car and looked at the sky. Instead I looked for someone to ask.
I walked away with this thought:
Why am I always looking toward things of this earth for answers when what I need to do is to look to God?
I guess he was wondering the same thing.
Wanna share a time God showed up for you like this?
What was your last “captain obvious” moment?
