Bumping into God
If we wake up and look around us, we will start to notice God and His Grace all around us.
I just finished reading Bumping into God for probably the third time. I really enjoy the book and it always reminds me to wake up and look around.
When we get busy, stressed or life just starts pressing in on us; we start to look inward instead of outward. We start to focus on our self and our problems. Those are the times that we lose sight of all the blessings and wonderful things that God has done in our lives.
The presence of God can be seen and felt everywhere, and Bumping into God reminds the reader that we really do bump into God every day in all kinds of humorous, serious, mysterious, random, and sometimes completely unlikely ways.
This book is a collection of 35 stories about the daily encounters with the presence of God in both the mundane and extraordinary moments that make up all of our days.
A natural storyteller and Chicago resident, the author shares his God-filled memories of five decades living in Chicago. These stories are wonderful. It is a great book to remind us that we need to thank Him for the many blessings in our lives.
You can purchase Bumping into God on Amazon. It is available in both paperback and kindle formats. Don’t have a Kindle? Grab one for yourself. They are so nice to use for reading. I love my Kindle Fire and my little one uses the e-Reader version (just for reading without the added games and internet options).
I challenge you to look up and start paying attention to the things going on around you. Start looking for the Grace of God in your daily interactions with others. I promise you it will do wonders for your attitude and will be a healing balm to your heart.
