I believe that the glory of God is in the details of every day life. I believe this is where He captures us and redefines what we know of knowledge and beauty and awe.
We learn that God is not a far off reality that only makes sense to the spiritually inclined. He is a very active participant in our day-to-day lives. He uses even the minutest of opportunities to get us acquainted with who He is and what He likes to do.
Nothing gets wasted on His watch. Coincidences are no longer coincidences to us — they are messages that actually got through to us. Each one is only one quadrillion quadrillionth of the sum of what He has to communicate to us in our lifetimes. This should all get us excited about what is beyond.
