I Saw My Lord Today

I saw my Lord today. No, I didn’t see thunderclouds with bolts of lightning, nor did I see a blinding flash of light or pillars of fire.  But I saw my Lord today, as soon as I walked into church.  I saw Him in eyes that looked at me with love.  I saw Him in smiles that greeted me warmly.  I saw Him in the innocence of little children.  I saw Him in the wisdom of the elderly.  Everywhere I looked, I saw my Lord.

I heard my Lord today. No, I didn’t hear a deep rumbling voice, but I heard my Lord today, as soon as I walked into church.  I heard Him in a cheerful voice of greeting.  I heard Him in questions about my welfare.  I heard Him in the soft voices at prayer. I heard Him in musical instruments and voices lifted in praise.  I heard Him in the sermon, challenging me to grow.  I heard Him thundering in the silence.

I felt the presence of my Lord today.  No, I didn’t literally hold His hand, but I felt the presence of my Lord today, as soon as I walked into church.  I felt Him in a firm handshake.  I felt Him in an arm around my shoulder.  I felt Him in a warm hug. I felt Him in reflective moments of quiet meditation.   I felt Him all around me, surrounding me with His presence.

Lord, I am so grateful You’ve allowed me to see Your face, hear Your voice, and feel Your presence today.  I thank for dwelling in Your servants and demonstrating Your presence in them.  Help me keep my eyes, ears, and other senses open to Your presence.  Help me see You beyond the walls of church.  Help me hear Your voice wherever I may be.  Help me sense Your presence at all times. May others look at me and see Your face, hear Your voice, and feel Your presence in me, especially outside the walls of the church.

After raising a family and then teaching for over 20 years, I retired from full-time work. Now I spend time with family, tap dance, take long walks in nature, read, and write. I have published two stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul books and over a dozen devotions. My current goal is to publish a book of meditations over the gospels and to share my devotional writing on my blog. I hope you enjoy and are inspired.
