Looking at the gorgeous sunrise this morning over Pike's Peak I was thinking of the hand of the Lord in our lives. Do I always stop and ponder His presence. Not as often as I should but today He painted the skyscape full of beauty. Mick called me on his way to work to encourage me to look out the window. I was already making the bed, doing wash, feeding cats and emptying their boxes and on the computer. I looked out and was in awe. Grabbed the camera and thanked the Lord for His glory revealed in the cloudy sky, knowing I wanted to spend some time in His Word too:
Now after a time in My presence and Word you are calm in your spirit and able to focus; not by concentrating or force of your will but because you've been in the Master's presence, His house and you've praised Him.
I AM completeness for you, child. Face each day as our adventure together. I will give you much opportunity in all necessary ways.
You will look back on this time with no vagueness or questioning but you will see.
Know that it "makes sense" to Me even now and REST, my child.
Prayer: Lord, God, please help us multiple times a day to stop and praise You, focusing on Your presence and direction. You are our peace, you are our love and life if we have chosen to make you just that. You have set us captives free. Thank You! AMEN
