The Invisible Tug

A young boy was lying on the soft grass looking intently into the sky. He had a slight squint in his eyes as though he was searching for something. An elderly gentleman walked by and asked, “What are you looking for, son? What’s up there?” “A kite, sir,” came the reply. “But, I can’t see it,” said the man. “Neither can I,” said the boy. “But every now and then I can feel a tug.”
Like the boy and his kite, we may not be able to see God at work all the time, but every now and then we can feel Him tugging at the strings of our heart. We are surrounded by many magnificent displays of His presence, but they become commonplace, ordinary and sometimes just there.
But then a lovely flower appears unexpectedly, or we see a brilliant sunrise or sunset or a smile from a friend. When we least expect it, we receive a note of encouragement from a friend. When we are struggling with the difficulties of life we recall a verse of Scripture. We can sense His power in a thunderstorm or His energy in a bolt of lightning.
God is everywhere, tugging at our hearts waiting for us to see Him and wanting us to know He is with us.
Prayer: Lord, open our eyes to see You, our ears to hear You, our hearts to love You, and our lives to serve You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 19 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
