I am grateful for the understanding the Lord gave me about being an observer. By being a witness to the events that are happening in my life from His perspective I am able to notice little things that are going on that help me make sense of my circumstances.
Now, instead of feeling obligated to speak into situations, I find myself patiently being more attentive to what is occurring around me. Being a spectator to what I see God doing and saying enables me to respond with His mercy and grace instead of reacting like I formerly had the habit of doing.
I pray that God will make me more keenly aware of His activity in my life.
