Do you like to look at the clouds? Sometimes, it's hard for us to slow down, take a second to breathe, and acknowledge the beauty of the world around us... a world that God has given us simply because he loves us more than anything.
How has God worked in your life in small ways? Have you seen his love and graciousness today? Have you truly enjoyed the beauty of the world he has created?
I encourage you to be on the lookout for the small ways God works in your life. It's the small ways that really make a difference in our lives and how we see the world. God may remind us how much we love/miss our family. God may bring your comfort before you take a difficult test. God may remind you that life is precious... that every day we have is a gift. God may bring you into the life of someone new... giving you an opportunity to SHARE his love and promote his message.
What is God giving you today? Is he nudging you a certain direction or encouraging you to do something outside your comfort zone? Why not let go of your fear and do it?
I always think it is so cool when I see God in my small, everyday activities. It reminds me that God isn't just for sundays at church... time with the Lord is for every day, every second of every day... he is always with us. Next time you feel grateful, loving, happy, sad, stressed, overwhelmed, joyful... any emotion you can name, remember the Lord is always with you. He is there to make everything alright, even if it seems like the world is falling apart.
God is love. Look for him today.
"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."
