Sit. Stay. Look Right Here!

If people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. (Proverbs 29:18)

We're in a situation in our family right now that requires for us to look right at God. And keep looking. The prayers are all about Him lifting our chins to redirect our attention right at Him.

This is difficult. There are a lot of distractions and we're all extremely ADD. Kind of like the dogs in the movie "Up" -- we're looking at God and suddenly our heads turn -- "Squirrel!"

But you can't see what God is doing if you're not keeping your attention on Him. It's only then that we are able to see what He's revealing and doing.

"Most blessed?" I'd say the payoff is invaluable. Way better than a squirrel.
