Often the most familiar things around us can become the least noticed. We can drive or walk past somewhere hundreds of times but we may have never noticed a particular feature about that place. It can be like that with our faith in God. We can often overlook God in our lives and in the world. We are told in the Bible that God is with us always (e.g. Joshua 1v5-6/ Psalm 23/Psalm 139/ Matthew 1v23 or 28v20/ John 14v16-17) yet we can easily go through a day without NOTICING GOD. We often hear the question, especially in the midst of catastrophic events, ‘where is God?’ But the same question can be asked in the midst of our ordinary daily routines. Yet it is the question that we need to answer every day of our lives so we do not live a single day without being aware of God or responsive to God. This year (2016-17) we want to challenge ourselves to become better at NOTICING GOD in our lives and encouraging others when we notice God there also.
From Summer to Christmas 2016 we looked at the life of David for lessons on how we might notice God more. Our final focus in our 'Noticing God' series looks at how we might notice God in difficult times, times of loneliness, anxiety, doubt and suffering.
