What Are You Doing Today?

What are you doing today?

Some of us are going to work.

Some of us are managing the household.

Some of us are going to school.

Some of us are taking a day off to relax or go on a trip or catch up.

Some of us are going to the hospital or undergoing a treatment.

Some of us are retired but volunteering or engaging our daily routines.

Some of us are unemployed or underemployed and wondering what we are doing.

What are you doing today?

Whatever you are doing today; in the midst of the usual or unusual; whether it is clear or uncertain; in, with and under what is already happening around you...

seek the Kingdom of God.

Watch for the activity of God.

Look for what Jesus is already up to.

Seek to see what is already happening around the edges... the hints, the glimpses, the nudges.

Be attentive because He is out there... on the loose... showing us stuff that we can perceive and recognize...

if we watch.

Be assured of this: He is on His mission even while we are distracted.  He is fulfilling His purpose even when we aren't paying attention.  He is messing with people even though we misinterpret and think they are just irritating. He is staying on time and true to His word.  This is what He is doing today.

And He invites us to join Him. 

"The Kingdom is near... believe the good news.  Seek and you will find.  You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.  Seek first the Kingdom and all these things will be given to you as well. Come follow Me."

Whatever you are doing today, in the middle of the routine or the rush, watch for what is already happening.

Seek the Kingdom of God in the midst of it.  And join Him.
