It’s Right There

June 22nd, 2010


Has this ever happened to you? You say to your child, “Pick up that trash.” The child responds, “What trash?” “Over there.” “Where?” “There.” “I can’t see it.” “It’s right there.” You know how the story goes.

There is an interesting chat between the two on the road to Emmaus and Jesus. They’ve heard the testimony of the women who went to the tomb. In fact, they were amazed by their story. They said they had seen Jesus. Nevertheless to these two, it was only a story they couldn’t believe. The rest of that conversation starts with Jesus calling them foolish. The truth was right in front of them, but they could not see it.

How about you? Are you looking right at the truth but cannot see it? Is there some situation in your life in which you lack faith that God can work? Listen to the Spirit, read the Word, look at what God is doing around you. Believe in the resurrected Christ!

    The truth in front of me is that my sons have been shielding me since my husband passed last year. We all need our “space” but nobody wants to let anybody go. I feel I am ready to try and make it on my own; it will be scary but I know God is with me. I Praise the Lord for my sons every day and wish nothing but the best for them in life.
