TO THE BEACH ~
A place where the waves come in and go out. A place where you can feel the sand between your toes if your shoes are off. A place of wonder as well. Where did all these people come from and what is their story. Kids laughing and kids crying. A mixture of sun, slight breeze and refreshing time to get away.
I found this friend sitting on a bench and no words were necessary. I hear his heart by the smile upon his face. He is dressed for warm weather, sandals and an ear to hear or does he. Just a statue, but still power behind a smile. I found it fun to take a picture and off we went to walk the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, CA. Such a fun place to visit and enjoy time. It is important to take out of your regular schedule and enjoy life.
Throughout the Bible are words that help us on a daily bases. God wants us to call on him and he will answer. Have you ever had those times when you just can't hear God? The wonder of it all just consumed your now and believing is just a bit hard? I certainly had those times life and I question so many things. When life just seems to much, it's time to get away from your own thinking.
GO OUTSIDE ~ take a look up and see the sky. Who else but God can paint a different picture everyday of life and give the promise of a rainbow on a raining day? It's beauty saids power and love that comes from above. To many things happen to us in life that make us wonder and then a gentle peace can enter by one thought of love.
Psalm 91:15 New International Version
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
Outside I see the beauty of the hills, flowers and people enjoying life. Inside I see my own struggles of life, my disappointments in life and the wonder of what's next. I have learned to trust in God through all seasons of life and to look up to see a God who truly cares. Who knows exactly why things happen and tears come beyond measure? Who knows the depth of your story or even just one day of struggle? I only that answer to be God and his beauty is amazing. Letting go of what you can not change and certainly changing the things you can in life.
CAN YOU HEAR ME GOD?
Psalm 17:6 ~
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Joshua 1:9 ~
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
Psalm 9:10 ~
Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
Readers of my blog, I don't understanding everything that happens in life, but I have learned to trust in God through all things. I have learned that staying mad at God is not good. It's okay to disagree, but the Bible says we can be angry but sin not.
Ephesians 4:26-27 New International Version
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,
27 and do not give the devil a foothold.
I have learned to look up and count blessings. Life goes by so quickly and suddenly things happen in our lives. We never want to live life with regrets or stay in wrong thinking. Popping in some God moments and trusting beyond a human reasoning is important. Purpose this day a good one. My prayers continue for the readers of my blog, your family and friends.
