Life is full of expectations. Sometimes those expectations are joyously met and other times we become discouraged when they go unfulfilled. Did you ever stop to consider that the realization of expectations might have something more to do with what we see and how we see it?
Dennis Hensley’s book, More Than Meets the Eye, asks readers, “Do you see God in your everyday, ordinary, somewhat humdrum life?” In a hospital bill for example? Perhaps you are only looking for God in the miraculous and stupendous. It’s easy to see God in the parting of the seas of life. But what about that billboard you see along the highway? The dandelion in your yard? The pain in your child’s eyes?
In the book of James, we are told we have not because we ask not. The illustrations in Doc Hensley’s book, More Than Meets the Eye, are text book examples of you have not because you see not. God is everywhere, if we only open our eyes.
Dennis is a consummate story teller. One minute he will engage you with his real-life stories designed to make you smile and the next moment his words bring a tear to your eye. As you read, he takes you the next step by providing scripture verses to ponder and questions to consider. For those who want to dig deeper, each chapter is accompanied by a list of additional resources for further study.
I recommend you use this book as part of your daily devotional program. Thirty-one chapters, one for each day, this material will kickstart your quiet time. Enter into this study with the expectation of learning more about a God who loves you and the intention of looking for more in your walk with your Savior.
What a wonderful way to start the new year, expecting to encounter God where you least expect to find him.
