Had one of the fellas in a coaching huddle I lead make an interesting observation today: "Do I allow opportunities for God to show up?"
In a hyper-individualistic and entrepreneurial culture where those who pioneer and trail blaze ALONE are raised up as celebrities do I ALLOW God to be God? Or have I so structured my life, so controlled and crafted my livelihood that God is not given a chance to be God? And then I do what: cry afoul and yell at him for his absence and apparent lack of participation/interest in my life which leads to chasing the next 'experiencing him' moment (just need that next good book, conference, video series, small group, church service, sermon, worship song/experience, etc.). Maybe he is just siting on the sidelines, right where I have pushed him.
So how can I create intentional space in my life for him to be more alive and present? In what way can I give him an opportunity, today, to allow him to be the creator of the universe? How am I being invited to surrender control? What am I being invited into that will allow him to reveal his true identity as creator but I have not gone because it will also reveal my true identity as created? What about for you?
