More than just a Glimpse of Him

It's the end of the week and the typical stuff around here. Messy house, dishwasher running, kids watching a late afternoon movie and truly life is good. It's that kind of week when each day provided huge God moments. I often hear the words..."I got a glimpse of Jesus today". A glimplse? Just a glimpse? I ask myself every single day why He even shows up into my life, and everyday His love shines through the events that unfold in my life.

I was going to just talk about the week, but remember I am one of those Jesus freakish types. I don't stand on the street corners passing out tracks, or run along bike riders with signs. I just love seeing my life embraced by Him and not just seeing the glimpse's but seeing Him move in my life and those around me.

Our book club ended this week. Something the last chapter highlighed was "boastful moments" about God. Why do we hold back? Do we see Him in the small stuff or do we see Him in the big stuff too? And do we boast whole heartedly when He amazes your socks off.

So this week ending and the relaxing Friday ends with God's hand on a new business venture. I have been working on launching a benefit concert organization. It has a name music.passion.hope. I have a blog on this, so take a moment to visit and find out more of what we are doing. Today a call came out of the blue for my company to come alongside another mission. It's not me people, it's the amazing blessing of God saying "okay Elizabeth you don't like to be idle, so lets get you doing something for My Kingdom".

So as this week comes to end I want to publically give God a big hug and smile for healthy kids, a warm home, an amazing husband who smiles at my new business idea, and supports me, and then to friends who allow me to attempt back flips of joy over the silly things in life.


  1. Hi Elizabeth! Just wanted to let you know I am back online at home (yay!) and posted an update. Can't wait to get back into the bloggy wing of things!

  2. Elizabeth! I love hearing you boast on the Lord! One of my favorite things to do! I was able to pray with a gal on Tuesday that had the worst migraine ever in the past four years. We prayed... and she called within hours to let me know that she felt better than she had in a long time... and she just kept getting better. How cool is that!

  3. Boastful moments... I've had so many of them over the past week, it's hard to chronicle them all. God is so very present in my life; sometimes I forget to notice him. I've been trying to notice more, be more intentional about practicing his presence so that rather than be surprised by his "showing up", I come to expect it!

    Blessings and peace to you this week~elaine
