Recognize the Presence

Let this be a time of walking in contemplation, of listening.  Don't miss this time of your recognizing restoral. Two of the disciples missed who Jesus was as they walked toward the village of Emmaus. They were discussing all that had happened. All that had happened.  All that had happened.  They were so stuck in the past, although the immediate past, that they missed what was happening in the present. Jesus was with them in their present. As Jesus talked with them they still missed His presence.  It was not until they invited Jesus to stay with them that they got it.  At the table - when Jesus took the bread, gave thanks, broke it, and gave the bread to them- then they recognized Him, then He was gone.

Sometimes we get so caught up on what has happened to us, with us, around us that we miss what God is doing right now in our present. You cannot recognize what God is doing unless you invite Him in.  Don't get stuck in your past, recognize the awesomeness of The Presence. enough for now.
