I Saw God Today

by | Jan 8, 2009 | God, music

Today in BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) we studied Chapters 33 and 34 of the book of Exodus. As I was

listening to the lecture, something our leader said stopped me. Part of our study this week was on when Moses asked God, “Show me your glory.” Exodus 33:18. She asked us, “When was the last time you took time to see God’s glory? It’s all around us if we look.” That brought to mind a song I’ve enjoyed listening to lately.

In the last few months, I’ve become a country music fan…not a huge fan, but a growing one. I’m finding many country artists sing about subjects I can relate to…many of them are about God. This song I’m referring to is by George Strait…I Saw God Today. The song talks about how he’s seen God’s glory in that one particular day, and how he slowed down to notice. (This song won the Single of the Year Award at the Country Music Awards in November.) When was the last time we’ve seen, or have taken time to notice God’s glory? It truly is all around us if we look.

I saw God in a number of things today…my children’s smiles, my niece’s almost four year old innocence, in a lady who was in our discussion group at BSF and how she answered her questions, the sparkling snow flurries as they were falling from the sky, my husband’s kind words to me, and through a phone message my friend Steve left me today. (Every time I see Steve or hear from him, I’m reminded of God’s goodness!) I’m sure there were many more things today that I missed, unfortunately. Where did you see God today?

I’m sharing the lyrics of I Saw God Today below. I hope you can hear the song first-hand for yourself soon! You’ll be blessed by it! 🙂

I Saw God Today

Just walked down the street to the coffee shop
Had to take a break
I’ve been by her side for 18 hours straight
Saw a flower growing in the middle of a sidewalk
Pushing up through the concrete
Like it was planted right there for me to see
The flashing lights, the honking horns
All seemed to fade away
In the shadow of that hospital at 508
I saw God today

I’ve been to church, I’ve read the Book
I know He’s here but I don’t look
Near as often as I should .. yeah I know I should
His fingerprints are everywhere
I just slowed down to stop and stare
Opened my eyes and man I swear
I saw God today

Saw a couple walking by
They were holding hands
Man she had that glow
Yeah I couldn’t help but notice she was starting to show
Stood there for a minute taking in the sky
Lost in that sunset
A splash of amber melted into shades of red.

I’ve been to church, I’ve read the Book
I know He’s here but I don’t look
Near as often as I should .. yeah I know I should
His fingerprints are everywhere
I just slowed down to stop and stare
Opened my eyes and man I swear
I saw God today

Got my face pressed up against the nursery glass
She’s sleeping like a rock
My name on her wrist wearing tiny pink socks
She’s got my nose, she’s got her mama’s eyes
My brand new baby girl
She’s a miracle
I saw God today
