MY VIEW ~
As I write you now, my view is this picture. I am sitting watching this bird sit so quietly and other birds flying around. The calmness of the water, the beauty of the mountans and God's amazing power to created.
I am taken back by the beauty of this land and the things God created for us to enjoy. We might pass beauty by or miss out because we are not focus on what is in front of us.
Colossians 1:15-16 New International Version (NIV)
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
MY VIEW ~ Spiritually
God has given us his word (Bible) to guide our lives and to be complete in him. I have personally drifted away from the will of God by being so caught up in things. I'm not going to mention the what of things, but just that life can sometimes get to be overwhelming. God tells us not to be weary in well downing. Sometimes the best of circumstances, can bring some sorrow.
Have you ever asked yourself how you are going to help someone else when you really can't help yourself? Have you ever been at the end of the rope so to speak and felt done? Have you ever just given the devil more credit for things than you should? Well I have and it's not a good place to be at in life. Feeling done and broken inside but looking okay on the outside. It's a good thing that God looks inside our hearts and knows us.
THE NEXT STEP ~
Is turning our thoughts to God's thoughts. Looking at the beauty of this earth, the mountains, the water and sharing life with loved ones. The moments that took us away from blessings because of over thinking and feeling done. There are moments that can turn our thoughts to God and can lead us down the right path of life.
Psalm 37:25 New International Version (NIV)
25 I was young and now I am old,
yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
or their children begging bread.
I'm older now and see things in a new light. I have wasted too much time trying to help people who don't want to help themselves. I have wasted too much time talking about things I can not change. The power of words and precious time we can not get back. So many lives change in a moments time and we learn new normals. Within those new normals are people who will spur us on in life.
Hebrews 10:24 New International Version (NIV)
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds
Purpose this a great day and count some blessings!
