Don’T Miss What God Is Doing In Your Life

(The next is a transcription from a video Linda together with I recorded. Please excuse whatever typos or errors.)

In 2017, I purchased a Jeep Wrangler. I had been wanting ane for 20 years.

I fifty-l wrote a song virtually wanting a Jeep Wrangler inwards high school. It was but something I had been longing for, for such a long time.

I had honestly shopped around for Jeeps probably three times over the previous 20 years. And then for one reason or another, I just couldn’t acquire out through alongside the purchase at the fourth dimension.

I would go through this cycle over and over again. Over time, I’m praying for this car and in 2017 I finally was able to purchase a Jeep.

The outset solar daytime I got the Jeep Wrangler nosotros were genuinely driving back from Kentucky, as I bought it out of footing, thence it was a brusk scrap of a drive. And hence I’k driving dwelling, I’grand on top of the Earth, hence ecstatic that I live on choose got this automobile! Everything seems practiced together with I’i K noticing that l-l strangers are waving to me. I thought, “Oh, that’s a fun Kentucky thing.” Driving downward these roads inward Kentucky besides everybody’s waving in improver to it’s merely nifty together with it’s awesome.

The side past times side daytime, I’1000 dorsum inwards Nashville, I acquire out alongside the Jeep equally well equally it’s a beautiful hateful solar daytime. I bring the top downwardly equally well equally I took the doors off. It’s genuinely an amazing feeling. I experience similar I’1000 basically on a motorcycle with iv wheels. It’s bully.

So I’1000 driving inward ane trial one time more than, too I’m driving downwardly this route. There’s a lot of cars on this route, but I noticed this guy was waving to me equally well as I view, “Do I know you?” I was trying to expect to come up across if I knew him, but I didn’t know him. I as well as so view, “Oh, mayhap he alone confused me for someone else.” And likewise in addition to then I started noticing to a greater extent than equally good equally to a greater extent than people waving at me, it was merely happening to a greater extent in addition to to a greater extent than than likewise to a greater extent i time in ane case again.

I was at a stoplight one time together with this guy starts waving to me, like waving to me hence much that he almost falls out of his machine waving to me. I began thinking, “Well, what is going on?” I sense similar all this waving started in i case I got this Jeep together with I could non figure out what was going on. Then it but in determination dawned on me, every unmarried mortal who I remember who had been waving to me was also driving a Jeep.

The Jeep Club

There’s a fellowship hither that I simply joined. I didn’t know that inwards that location was a Jeep society or that I am at one time a role of this society. Apparently this is a thing, if y'all accept a Jeep together with you lot drive past times soul else inward a Jeep, you lot moving ridge. That’s entirely what yous do.

Once I learned of the Jeep moving ridge, I tin lavatory recall telling my married adult woman Linda that if she’s taking the Jeep out for the 20-4 hours, she has to wave at other people who are driving a Jeep. She looked at me together with asked “Are yous serious?” I told her that yep, this is a thing. They’re all going to moving ridge at you inwards improver to yous demand to wave dorsum. With the exception for girls, because sometimes girls don’t moving ridge. If the driver is a sixteen-yr-i-time girl driving her bright yellow Jeep, she doesn’t moving ridge (similar Cher from Clueless).

Now that I realized I’ane yard inward this monastic enjoin, too this is how yous acquit too what you do, I didn’t wishing to miss whatever risk to moving ridge at my fellow social say members. I started watching really, truly closely. Every quaternary dimension I’M driving, I’m looking around. Quickly, what I realized is at that spot’s Jeeps everywhere. I knew inward that location were a lot of Jeeps on the route, but in 1 representative yous’re genuinely, genuinely looking…they’re everywhere.

I was participating together with paying assist and looking all around for Jeeps, everywhere. Finding them in improver to getting to do my moving ridge to everybody was exciting. We had our 2-twelvemonth-onetime lady friend getting inward on the game, also. Anytime nosotros’d exist driving, she’d alive looking around and she’d yell, “My Jeep. My Jeep.” It was thus cute. But anyway, the signal is, is that it became a house thing for all of us. And nosotros were all entirely like a shot really aware of all the Jeeps on the road besides nosotros never missed whatever of them because we were looking hence closely.

God’s Blessings

If you’re even so with me, you lot’re inward all likelihood wondering why I am telling yous that storey inwards improver to at that location’s a debate. I’k working on a bulk right at present inward add-on to I precisely finished a chapter. And the chapter is virtually seeing God’s blessings inwards improver to how really oftentimes if nosotros aren’t looking, we miss God’s blessings equally well every bit we missed the things that He’s doing inward our lives. And the truth is, is that God’s blessings are all around us also they’re happening all the fourth dimension. He is pouring them out on us. But if we’re non actively looking for what God’s doing inwards our lives too the blessings that are coming towards us, or that are already inwards our lives, nosotros post away miss them.

One of the things that I was so guilty of for so many years was explaining away the things that God’s doing. When God would do something, I didn’t run across it equally a approving. When I got a promotion, I would explicate it every bit, “Well, I but worked genuinely hard. That’s why I got a promotion.” Or, if yous’re struggling to acquire meaning for a while as well equally inwards improver to then you lot get important in improver to you lot autumn out to exercise a doctor, you lot dismiss attribute that to the Dr. or you lot flame attribute it to God. Maybe God used that Dr., but at the cease of the daytime, that’s the approval of the Lord.

The reality is, is that God uses natural things all the 4th dimension to bless us. But I retrieve that’s why it makes it tricky to come upwardly across that it is really the Lord who is doing these things. Rather than only seeing them equally a coincidence together with similar, “Oh, well it was exactly because I happened to live inward the right identify at the right fourth dimension.”

Well, yep, yous were at that spot at the correct identify at the correct fourth dimension. But why were you lot there? You were there because of the Lord. The Lord directs your steps. And you dismiss agree off at that every scrap exclusively serendipitous or you terminate come across it for what it really is, which is the approving of the Lord inwards your life.

Linda and I just want to encourage you in this today, be looking around, be watching for what God’s doing in your life. And sometimes He even does this through things that are big challenges inward plus to struggles as good as trials. He uses them ultimately to live a approving. We’ve had this come nearly multiple times.

Blessings inward Challenges, Struggles, in addition to Trials

One of the best things e'er happened inwards my life was getting laid off. So many fantastic things came through that trial, but the instant it happened it was genuinely difficult to come upwards across it every bit a approving. I’1000 non at all trying to say that everything bad that happens is a approving. But the bespeak is, to alive watching, live looking to run across what God is doing inward your life.

I also want to point out that God does say that He will use everything for our good. God causes all things to work together for our good. So the things that come into your life that are not from God, He is still using them to your do good. Everything inwards your life, sound or bad, he is weaving it together to brand this amazing, beautiful life for yous.

If y'all would similar to picket Linda in addition to I verbalise virtually this say of written study, alive certain to banking companionship cheque out our YouTube video:

We hope yous plant life this helpful. Be blessed. Be a approving.
