Friends, I printed something this week and hung it up where I could see it regularly. My heads been spinning, so please forgive me for not remembering where I found this. Just know that I’m thanking God for the one to whom credit should be given. Here’s what it says.
Happy moments, PRAISE GOD.
Difficult moments, SEEK GOD.
Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD.
Painful moments, TRUST GOD.
Every moment, THANK GOD.
Let’s see if we can pick out the common factors … first, life is going to be filled with a smorgasbord of MOMENTS. Some are going to be like dessert – rich and sweet. Other moments more closely resemble liver and onions. My nostrils are flaring at the very thought. But every moment has value in God’s economy.
Second, GOD is part of every MOMENT. When we have a relationship with Him, we are always in His presence, and we have the opportunity to share each moment with Him as we praise, seek, worship, trust, and thank Him.
God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him,
though he is not far from each one of us.
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’
In the last few weeks, I’ve had every one of the moments listed above and countless more. How about you? But I know that my life isn’t made up of big moments that define me, but of many moments that demonstrate God’s faithfulness, provision, and protection. This week, I encourage you to consider your “moments,” how God has been a part of them, and how you have (in the past) or will (in the future) share those moments with Him as you praise, seek, worship, trust, and thank Him.

That’s a neat reminder that every “moment” is an opportunity to connect with God. Thanks for sharing it, Vicki! I especially liked your analogy that “life is a smorgasbord of moments” — I’m praying for you to have a “dessert” kind of day! 🙂
I love your posts! Always, always an encouragement! Lord bless you Vicki!
