I had clean laundry waiting to be folded on the bed.
Dinner in the oven and the salad was yet to be prepared.
Items were still out of place in the family room.
The dishwasher was waiting to be started.
Yet, in the midst of the busy, I was looking out the window.
I was extra tired yesterday, and it was an effort to do the normal tasks.
My heart was yearning for some quiet with my Lord and in that moment of looking outside I felt a tug.
Take a walk.
I didn’t hesitate.
Donning my coat, I told Jase I was going for a short walk around the property and left.
The sun’s rays lit up the sky in beautiful color.
Of course my phone’s camera couldn’t do justice to the awesomeness of God’s creation.
But I walked, took pictures, and prayed.
It was so good.
Exactly what I’d been needing.
Something about standing outside and looking at the amazing beauty of God’s creation reminded me to rest in Him.
Upon returning to the house I was able to complete all the required tasks.
My heart was at rest in His truth, for surely, God has every detail in hand and His ways are best.
Psalm 8:3-4NKJV — When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?
Psalm 8:6-9NKJV — You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen— Even the beasts of the field, The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
Dear Lord Jesus,
How great and awesome is Your name in all the Earth! What a blessing and privilege it is to know You, to have even a tiny amount of understanding about You and Your ways! Thank You, Jesus for all Your blessings. Thank You for being the Creator of the Universe. Thank You for being the Savior of our souls. Thank You for showing us truth and mercy, compassion and justice. Lord Jesus, You alone are worthy of all praise, all honor. May my life bring glory to Your precious name. Thank You for all You are doing and all You have done. I love You. Amen.
