In too-plain sight

Lent 2013 Cover  Psalm 27

Question for reflection:
Assume for a moment that you saw evidence of God’s presence in your life today / yesterday, but also that you missed recognizing it. Think back over the events of your day. When did you feel close to God? When did you feel far from God? Where might God have been working in you / your life even if that work seems unfinished as you reflect on it?

Prayer for the day:
As you breathe in: “Open the eyes of my heart, Lord.” As you breathe out: “I want to see you!” Repeat.

~ Becky Ullom Naugle, Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministry
