I awoke this morning, took a peek at the sky, and decided the morning held nothing spectacular enough for me to get up early. After all, morning runs until noon. As I was thinking that way, I was prodded by the Holy Spirit that God is never boring.
What might I be missing?
As soon as I thought the question, I heard thousands of birds. I got up and ran to the kitchen where my husband said "You should have been here a few minutes ago."
I missed it. We went outside and I could see the tail end of a swarm of birds that would have made it into Alfred Hitchcock's movie. To top that off their was a slight fog over the horizon that the sun was swiftly burning away. Missed that too.
I wondered if this is how Adam and Eve fell for the you can eat from that tree trick. Boredom. Too familiar with a God that can never be fully known by us. Taking God too casually, thinking it is only a warm friendship with Him instead of life. Thinking we can be intimate with Him in our casual friendship forgetting that our very life and being is hidden in Christ.
