Be still, and know that I am God…Psalm 46:10

Beth Moore in her “Believing God” Bible study, coined the term “GodStop”. I realized that I had already experienced many GodStops, but now I had an actual term for it. “A GodStop is any means by which God seems to go out of His way in the course of your day to make Himself known to you. It helps us to grow more aware of God’s presence in our lives. The stop in GodStop comes from the acronym: Savoring the Observable Presence. Learn to say, ‘That’s God!’ and then Stop and savor the moment!”

May you have many GodStops today!

Love the term! As a family, we are just recently taking more time to focus on seeing God at work in our everyday lives. How easy it is to just keep going along and not even stop to notice all God does each day. We were prompted in this direction by CJ Mahaney's message the other week.

Anyway, our Godstop for the week is that Aidan has just started praying for a friend his age to move into the neighborhood and on Thursday we found out that a new family is moving in at the end of the block with a boy exactly Aidan's age. Not only is God working, He's working quickly (which is good for the short patience of an 8 year old : )
