They are easy to miss. When we live our lives thinking that we, alone, are in control of the outcome, it becomes easy to miss the fingerprints.
The fingerprints are everywhere. The evidences of God's hand in our lives are noticeable, but only as we allow ourselves the time, the meditation, the stillness, the humility necessary to discern them. It also becomes critical to relinquish a little control, to be willing to be guided by One much wiser than ourselves.
The past month has been unique for me, filled with monumental moments, pivotal once-in-a-lifetime experiences; and thankfully, God's fingerprints were very evident throughout the whole journey. In our moments of sorrow, He was there. In our moments of joy, He also had a hand in our lives. He brought strength, comfort, peace, insight, stamina, reassurance, and hope. I am certain that these were all direct blessings from a loving Heavenly Father and His Son.
