All too often in life we think that we’ll only find God in life’s “big” moments. Major celebrations and cultural events; the most significant holidays and festivals; moments in our lives when our path is fundamentally changed.
What we often fail to understand and pay attention to – and therefore miss by way of an opportunity to listen and grow – is that God is just as present in life’s “small” moments; the whispers rather than the screams.
The big moments are wonderful and full of meaning, but less so if we cannot answer affirmatively to “Do you show up for the whispers?”
Like Elijah on the mountain, listen carefully. You might just be pleasantly surprised by what you hear.
