God is in Every Selfie

God is in Every Selfie

It dawned on me, while writing my newest book Butterscotch, that God is in every selfie we take. He is in every frame, every picture, and every moment of life. He is often overlooked but He is undoubtedly there. He never poses as we do, trying to look good from every angle because He is good in every circumstance.

Yes, He is in every frame, but do not get the impression that He is there photo-bombing our attempt to look our best. We might decide we want to retake the picture. When I am at my best I like the picture, but if it makes me look fat, or sad, or mad, I don’t like it so much, and I want a do-over. There are no retakes with God, every picture good or bad has had Him in it, and it is a keeper. He knows all about that moment-in-time, because He sees all, hears all, and knows all. Most of the time, we will look at a picture we have taken and not see the invisible God, but He is there. He is always there. God is omnipresent. As Christians, we know that God is always there, but if you are like me, we rarely give it much thought.

Older and wiser, I am much more aware of God’s presence. I seek to live desiring fewer do-overs. I try to see God in moments of my life, like a continual selfie plus One, God. I try to sense His presence in the most joyous of occasions and the toughest moments of life. I know God is always there but it is when I seek Him out, in all the selfies of life that I find Him.

Five Suggestions for Beginning to See God in Every Selfie

  1. Stop whatever you are doing and recognize that God is there with you. One way is to set an alarm on your phone every hour to remind you to recognize God at that moment.
  2. Reflect on your life and try to imagine God’s expression. Is He smiling? Is He shaking His head in disbelief? Is he walking beside you? Behind you? Or is He carrying you through a difficult time?
  3. Try to sense God’s presence in whatever you are doing. Begin to sense Him more in every aspect of your life. This will require a diming of distractions and an intense focus on God. Your mind and heart can become filters that will guide your actions to be more Christ-like.
  4. Talk with Him as you are going through life and listen to where He is guiding you. This is a prayer without ceasing.
  5. Be aware of the inner voice that encourages you to act in love toward God and others. God the Holy Spirit, is a prompter for us to do God’s will. As we obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit we will begin to see in every frame of our life, God’s will, God’s Way, and God’s Word.
