I friend of mine would often ask me that question: “What has God been doing in your life lately?”
I always loved that question, and I hated that question. Obviously, God is a part of my life – hopefully, a very important part. But, what has he been doing? It really forces you to stop and examine your life. It forces you to think about what God is doing, where he’s leading me, and perhaps what I’m doing that he’s not leading me to do.
Plus, by including a word like “lately” or “recently”, the question would always remind me and others that God is constantly at work in our lives. We should not have to look back years, or months, or even weeks to see God at work in our lives and through our lives.
The question would always start a good conversation. Also, if other people were around, they would usually join in the conversation as well. It would always be very encouraging and challenging as different people expressed what God had been doing in their lives (either internally by changing them or externally by using them to serve others).
So, I wanted to give you this opportunity to share with me and my readers. (I hope to be able to jump in and join you as well.)
