Sunday Sharing: A God of Details

I'm nearing the end of Ezekiel and this week read about the vision of the temple in chapters 40-43.  This was a very detailed description, giving exact measurements of the walls and rooms.  I think it's really impressive that our God is a God of details. 

I love seeing how God uses me to meet the needs of others sometimes, working out all the details.  For example, Friday I went outside on my morning break [detail 1] but instead of walking (as usual) [detail 2], I just read by the door of our building.  A worker from Jimmy Johns (a sandwich place) came by offering me a sample sandwich which was wrapped [detail 3].  I took one, thinking I could eat it later or give it to Gerard as a surprise.

As it turned out, I wasn't hungry enough to eat it at lunch [detail 4] so decided to bring it home.  As I walked to my bus stop, a man along the way asked if I could give him some food [detail 5].  At first, I said no and kept walking but then I remembered I had that sandwich [detail 6] and stopped and offered it to him.  He asked what kind it was so I told him ham and cheese.  He took gratefully took it. 

Most mornings I pray asking God to make me a blessing to someone that day.  I was glad I had the extra sandwich to give to that man.   

That being said, for my scripture highlight this week I chose Ezekiel 43:2 which says:
And I saw the greatness of the God of Israel coming from the East.  God's voice was like the roar of rushing water.  His greatness made the earth shine. (ICB)
This was part of Ezekiel's vision.   Usually I think of God speaking in a soft, quiet voice but in this vision, it was loud!  I am glad I have the privilege to serve a great God!

How about you?  Have you been a blessing to someone lately or has someone been a blessing to you?  Feel free to share one of your scripture highlights of the week in the comments or comment on this post..

I love this. It's like Six Degrees of Karen. Or something. You know what I mean. I like how all these events led to nourishment for a person who needed it. You inspire me to try to be a blessing to others.
