The fallen rose petal with water droplets makes me feel lovely.
Even if I am experiencing another bad hair day
Even if I am feeling unnoticed, sinful, rejected, or unloved.
The crisp, stars that shine in the pitch darkness make me feel tiny and simultaneously significant . Is. 40:26
The sunrise’s fragrant colors that transform the sky washing away the darkness give me the peace from God and making me feel beautiful.
The sun’s all-consuming glow makes me feel warm and treasured.
Throughout the day and into the night God’s fingerprints are molded all over creation.
The rolling thunder teaches me God’s power.
The acorn teaches me surrender.
The wind teaches me that I must trust God even when I don’t understand what He’s doing or can’t grasp His plan.
His messages are gifted to me all day long
The person that’s difficult to deal with and drives my patience could be God honing away my selfish chunks and sculpting me into a more patient woman.
The difficult season that God is walking me through will show me more of His faithfulness that I wouldn’t have experienced otherwise.
But sometimes I become so focused on me and my mess that I miss God’s presence.
I miss what He is trying to teach me
So, even when you feel lost, unafraid, sinful and broken.
Be still and lean into God’s presence. Repent and trust Him.
He is God, Lord, Redeemer, and Savior.
Let your heart be still and let His overwhelming love wash over you.
“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth”! Psalm 46:10.
So despite my crazy life I must take time to be still and know God’s sovereignty. Regardless of how I feel Jesus is God and worthy to be praised.
