Advent Week 2: The Visitation - How To Find God in The Ordinary Everyday Moments of Life

The Visitation - How To Find God in The Ordinary Everyday Moments of Life

Have you ever listened to someone sharing their stories of divine encounters and wondered if those moments were reserved for a select few? It's easy to feel a tinge of envy when hearing about God-moments, those times when the divine seems to touch everyday life.

But here's the good news: God is not limited to extraordinary circumstances or select individuals. He can and does reach us in the midst of our ordinary, everyday lives.

In this blog post, we'll explore three essential elements that can help you invite and recognize God's presence in your everyday life.

Can God Reach You Too?

It's a question that often crosses our minds. Can God reach someone like me, a busy mom trying to juggle the demands of motherhood, work, and life in general? The answer is a resounding yes. God's love and grace know no bounds, and His presence can be found in the most ordinary moments. We don't need to wait for a grand, life-altering event to experience His visitation.

Three Keys to Enjoying God Encounters

Let's delve into these keys and accompany them with relevant Scriptures to guide our journey.

1. Awareness:

The first step to experiencing God's visitation in the ordinary is being aware. Cultivate a mindset of openness and attentiveness to the world around you. In doing so, you'll start noticing God's hand in the small things, those everyday moments that may have previously gone unnoticed.
"Be still, and know that I am God."
- Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
2. Gratitude:

A heart filled with gratitude is receptive to God's presence. By recognizing and giving thanks for the blessings, both big and small, you open the door to experiencing more of His grace. It's often in the act of thanksgiving that we feel God's love and His nearness.
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
- 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)
3. Simplicity:

Sometimes, we overcomplicate our spiritual journeys. But God can be found in simplicity. Embrace the beauty of the everyday. Engage in moments of quiet reflection, prayer, or meditation. Simplicity allows you to find God without the need for elaborate rituals or grand gestures.
"And he said: 'Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.'"
- Matthew 18:3 (NIV)
As we continue our Advent journey, let's remember that God's visitation knows no boundaries. He can and will reach you in your everyday life as a mother. All it takes is awareness, gratitude, and simplicity. Whether it's in the laughter of your children, the warmth of a hug, or the quiet of the night, God's presence can be felt in the ordinary moments.

Don't let the busyness of life blind you to the divine encounters waiting to happen. Embrace the joy of knowing that God is with you, always, even in the most ordinary moments. Your life as a mom is a sacred journey, filled with opportunities to encounter the divine.

So, let's keep our hearts open and our eyes keen as we journey through this Advent season. God is there, in the everyday. It's up to us to find Him.

"Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually." (1 Chronicles 16:11, ESV)

May your ordinary moments be filled with the extraordinary presence of God.


Heavenly Father,

We come before you with open hearts and gratitude for your presence in our lives. We thank you for the promise that you can reach us in the most ordinary of moments. In this busy season of motherhood, work, and life, help us to be aware of your loving presence.

Grant us the wisdom to recognize your hand in the everyday occurrences, the laughter of our children, the warmth of a hug, and the quiet moments of reflection. We are thankful for your visitation, even in the simplicity of life.

We pray for the strength to maintain an attitude of gratitude, to give thanks in all circumstances, and to acknowledge your blessings, both big and small. May our hearts overflow with appreciation for the gift of your love.

Lord, help us embrace the beauty of simplicity, to find you without the need for elaborate rituals or grand gestures. Teach us to approach life with the innocence of a child, with open hearts ready to experience your grace.

As we continue our Advent journey, may our lives be marked by encounters with you, Lord. We seek your presence continually, knowing that you are with us always.

In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
