We have all had those moments that we didn’t want to end when we could say these words, too: a marriage proposed and accepted; the birth of a child; a great vacation; when touched by the Spirit in worship or prayer; when enjoying family and friends. Great moments! There are times and events that are so special—God-touched—that we do not want them to end. We wish the good feeling to go on and on. We avoid looking at a clock because we do not want to leave or say good-bye.
The Lord wants to bless us with these great moments—and if we are not paying attention we may miss them. When we are in step with God’s Spirit, aware of His presence, we can realize that something special is happening. Even though we may not fully understand all that it means or where such a moment may lead, we know that we are in the presence of God and in tune—in harmony—with His will. When we do, we should say in gratitude: “This is a great moment!” May God bless us all with a transfiguring moment today that causes us to exclaim: “It is so good to be here!”
