The will of God.
Seeking it?   Yes, me too.
I think we tend to complicate and placate it, thinking it has the same mystery as the parables or pinterest.
But what of this is one of the 384 thousandth things in my life, I have muddied, but He has made clear.

I am finding His will is something to be sought daily.  Something that exists in the living not only in its study.  Something to be refreshed and renewed as we live and breathe.  Like mercy, it is close.

It is the daily dedication to Him instead of me.  It is looking for ways to bless instead of waiting for blessings.  It is acknowledging He is found in the unlikeliest places.

He is in the healing and in the suffering.
He is in the prayer and the unsaid thought.
He is in the worship and even in the worry.
He is in the chores and in the chorus.
He is in the child and the aged.  He is in the touch of the hand and the whisper of encouragement.
His will…………. to reflect Him.

To be transparent that all can see our flaws and His grace.
To be honest that all can see His truth.
To be thoughtful that all can see His wisdom.
To be forgiving that all can see His mercy.
To be quiet that all can hear His voice.
To be gentle that all can feel His touch.
To be giving that all can sense His abundance.

For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD gives grace and glory. No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11
