For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving. 1 Timothy 4:4 NIV
God finds the way for us to notice what needs to be seen. He opens our eyes to witness the beauty of His presence. And while we are held in the comfort of love, He provides moments for us to witness the gifts of His greatness. He places peace in our hearts and reminds us how it feels to be thankful.
God is the Maker of EVERY living thing. As He slows us down, He helps us faithfully focus and see what He wants us to see. He allows us to witness what waits to be noticed, as we become aware of His presence in our lives. He helps us realize what He created is GOOD.
He grows us with the offering of love and opens our eyes in truth. And as we view ALL that He’s created, we begin to see what’s been created in us. He opens our hearts and prepares us for His purpose. He help us remember who is working in our days.
Moments of awareness WILL prepare us to welcome JOY. When we recognize what God has done, we WILL BELIEVE in what’s to come. And as we witness the gifts of His creation, He will humble our hearts for JOY. He will help us breathe in ALL that is GOOD and welcome our prayers of our praise.
We must take time to notice what God provides and open the eyes of our hearts. If we embrace beauty that surrounds us, we won't forget why God is love! He will show us amazing things and remind us how to receive. He will bring peace in His presence and restore us to a place of thankfulness.
Dear God, Thank you for the beauty of creation. Forgive us when we don’t take time to notice the gifts of Your love. Help us see what needs to be seen when we spend time with YOU. We will focus on the gifts of Your greatness and anxiously welcome JOY when it comes. We will embrace the gift of a grateful heart and breathe HOPE in what You provide. And we will remember how very much we are loved. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
