Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” (Exodus 3:3)
How many bushes burn with fire, and you don’t take the time to go and look? Most of us never encounter God as we might because when the bush burns, we turn away to the desert. But God still has taken the initiative in arresting us. It is up to us to respond. As the famed British poetess Elizabeth Barrett Browning perceptively wrote,
Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he, who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest of us sit around and pick dewberries.
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
