How to find God in the Messes?




‘How do you find God in all your mess?

How do you see Him here?

The Apostle John whispers it clear:

“We [actually] saw his glory… For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another

and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing

and even favor upon favor

and gift [heaped] upon gift” (John 1:14, 16 AMP).

That’s the mystery map to the deep seeing!

We saw His glory … because … we have all received one grace after another. Gracethat is what the full life is full of.

And to see His glory — name the graces.

Retune the impaired senses to sense the Spirit,  to see the grace.

Why is it so hard?

Practice, practice.

The discipline of thanks only comes with practice.

When we practice giving thanks, we practice the presence of God, stay present to His presence, and it is always a practice of the eyes.


We don’t have to change what we see.

Only the way we see.”
