One Sister's Journey...
"If there are wolves in the woods –
expect to see wolves;
And if there is God in this place –
expect to see God.”
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts
Ann continues with, “…Can I be so audacious? To expect to see God in these faces when I am the blasphemer who complains, who doesn’t acknowledge this moment for Who it is?...I should want to care, and I try to will myself, but I’m hard, so tired. I turn away…” (pg. 126)
I read and reread this and the next few paragraphs a few times. Did you hear the message she proclaimed with such clarity? We can “expect” to see God if we are “seeking His face” yet if we are too busy complaining and doubting Him, then I’m thinking to see nothing but wolves.
My thought for today – does your life within the four walls of your home match those illuminated for the world to see when you walk outside? Is your home full of wolves or God? I continue to strive for God…how about you?
