Sigh… what a wonderful time of year we are in, don’t you think? It is my favorite time of year. The busyness of summer has past. All the summer running around activities are finished. We still have time before we need to start thinking about our Christmas plans.
We have a wonderful opportunity before us if we only choose it.
We have the opportunity to take a deep breath.
When we are in the midst of this noisy, busy world, He can get drowned out. We may not intend for this to happen, but it does. We think we can make the time… eventually… but sometimes we don’t.
It has to be a conscious decision. We need to make a decision to step away from the busyness and choose to see something special. Even in everyday ordinary moments… choose to see something special. His wonders are all around us. He has placed them everywhere just for us.
To lift our spirit.
For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13
To know His love.
Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39
To give us hope.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
To help us feel at ease.
The LORD surrounds His people both now and forevermore. Psalm 125:2
To make us want to know Him more.
Come near to God and He will come near to you. James 4:8
It is all a gift.
I pause in awe, giving Him my full attention. I am completely present and choose to feel true gratitude.
With a heart full of thanksgiving I receive His wonders.
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Have you taken the opportunity to step away from the busyness and be completely present in His wonders? How did it lift your spirit?
