Do you remember show and tell at school?
I do! It’s the only time that I really liked being in front of everyone. (Yes, I’m an introvert!) During show and tell, I could share what seemed to be be most important to me. I would show it off and tell all about it and why it was most important to me.
Recently, I was able to go back to Revelation Wellness instructor retreat — but this time as a Reviver. Meaning — I was able to just BE. Only doing what I felt led to do. Just being with God.
During this week at Revive retreat, God showed up in so many ways. But one major one for me was inviting me to know Him more. Seek Him more.
It’s like He wanted to have show and tell time with me.
I’ve had this blog in mind for a week or so but it just didn’t happen. I can’t honestly say it wasn’t the right time…but that I just let it go. I’ve learned that even when our heart wants to do more seeking, praying, reading, listening, etc. — our mind doesn’t always follow. When we take away some distractions — the enemy will just throw you different ones.
But being snowed in today, I thought it was a good time.
So — back to show and tell time with my Heavenly Daddy!
Do you realize that this happens daily? Constantly? We just overlook it. Take it for granted. Take a moment. Look all around you. Look at His creation. He’s showing and telling us so much!
Papa God has already had the ULTIMATE show and tell with us. His name is Jesus.
Love –> the GREATEST gift –> The GREATEST LOVE is Jesus!
Jesus showed us true love, unconditional love and God has told us all about it in His Word. The Bible.
When did I stop seeing and hearing that love? When did YOU?
When did I stop seeing and knowing who I truly am? When did YOU?
I don’t know the exact day…but I can tell you the why.
Just like Martha (Luke 10:38-42) was distracted by all the preparations to do — we are also distracted by all the stuff in the world and in our lives. Jesus only wants one thing. For us to be like Mary. To sit at His feet. For us to know Him. Love Him. Want Him.
He wants more show and tell time. So He can show and tell us about the greatest love. About our Heavenly Daddy. About ourselves.
When we stop and look around…when we look inside of ourselves…when we really look at others…God will show who He really is. We will see beauty in ALL of it. Good instead of bad. Love instead of hate.
He wants to tell us all about it. He wants to show us every bit of it.
How? We just need to seek Him. We need to listen. We need sit with Him. Read His word. It’s His great show and tell to us. It tells us the whole story.
THEN…we can bring show and tell time to others. We can show them Jesus…just by how we live our lives. We can tell them all about Him…through our testimonies. Through the everyday living of life. By letting our light shine…and always pointing it ALL back to Him. Through praising Him and worshiping Him.
Our everyday life is made to be Show & Tell for our Heavenly Daddy! Let Him Transform your mind, heart, soul, and body. Seek Him. Seek His face, the love He is offering. Seek Him in everything. Read His love letter to us, the Bible.
Here are some Bible verses that can help to remind you…just click on the verse.
Psalm 27…all of it is awesome, so linking to the whole thing…but Vs. 8 is that seeking reminder.
Hebrews 4:12 … His Word is ALIVE.
John 14:6-8 … He has shown us that He is the only way.
Romans 12:1-2 … Be transformed!
This song is amazing and just fit perfectly with “Show and Tell”. Here is just a bit of the lyrics. Posted below is the whole song video. Definitely worth the listen!
“Whisper” by Jason Upton
What you whisper in my ear
Let it find room in my heart
Like a garden let your words begin to grow
When my faith is prone to fear
Remind me of your love
Remind me that you’ll never let me go
Whisper whisper whisper in my ear
Tell me words I thought I’d never hear
Show me show me show me what you see
Illuminate what’s right in front of me
