God – Pay Attention

Six dead and several injured children in a school bus crash in Chattanooga, Tennessee. During an interview with a woman who lived on the street of the crash, she said that she saw a child lying on the ground, and it was God’s will that led her to help the child. The woman went on to say that all the neighbors joined to help. She once again attributed that helpful gathering to God’s presence.

Where was God several minutes prior to the crash? What was he watching over as the driver increased his speed? Where was he when the driver decided to take an unauthorized route? Was he preparing to watch the Macy day parade and make it safe? Was he lost in thought about the bombing in Aleppo? Was he cleaning the lead pipes in Flint, Michigan? What was God attending to. Clearly God has a lot to do in one day. But give credit, when credit is due. Good credit, or bad credit. You may not believe it, but God can be blasphemed. God can handle wailing. God can handle the greatest ill will that you can muster. God can handle the good, the bad and the ugly. God is truly powerful, flexible and always forgiving. God will be there the next day. God isn’t moving not now, not ever, so give God your best shot!
