My reflection is from Living Faith:
He sighed from the depths of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign?” Mark 8:12
Many times I have been someone who asked God to show me a sign
Just let me know that somehow everything will be okay. Give me a sign of which direction or path to take. Let me know if I am on the right track.
I feel like God responds. I see a beautiful sunset and I know that somehow everything will be okay. One door of opportunity closes that reveals another way. I pause for confirmation rather than rushing ahead, and I find the clarity or guidance I need to take my next step.
I am not asking God for a sign that he is real or that end times are at hand. Maybe it isn’t a sign at all that I am seeking but more of a prayer that God will remind me that I am not alone, that he sees me and that he cares about me. God is always speaking, and he has the entire language of the universe at his disposal.
I want to become a better listener.” Kristen Armstrong
