Don’t miss it!

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

what is man that you are mindful of him,

and the son of man that you care for him?

  Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings

and crowned him with glory and honor. – Ps 8:3–5

“Oh, the trees are so beautiful! I haven’t noticed the change in color.” My friend I was having lunch with was riding instead of driving and took notice of the splendor displayed in the rich colors of fall. She, like many of us, is so busy.

Lists of tasks when we are busy seem to take over our attention and we miss the fabulous gifts displayed right in front of us. God intentionally gives us special presentations of his glory to enrich our lives and let us know how much he loves us.

There is a world full of beauty for us to enjoy. If we look around, we may discover something we overlooked before … a sunset, a shoreline, or perhaps a couple of eyes that communicate great love for you.

Look around.

Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for the many gifts you have given me throughout my life. Forgive me when I have missed them because I allowed my yoke to get too heavy. Today I will be intentional to look for your hand in all things. Amen

Faith Tip: Be aware of the gifts God has for you today.

  1. I am out it the beauty every day. His gifts are too numerous to count, but that doesn’t mean I won’t try. The verses quoted are in my top 10. Thanks for sharing Kathy.

  2. my education has been in the life sciences. I look at the colors. Once I saw a green carpet of winter wheat surrounded by a woods of trees on a cloudless day on the first deer hunting day in October. The scene was awesome, reflecting and worshiping the God who created the intricate life system that made it all possible in the first place. Anybody who was driving an intelligently designed car on an intelligently designed road and cannot logically come to the conclusion there is an Intelligent Designer, Ha

  3. I, too, am amazed at what my eyes see when I actually pause & be still. And the scene may be exactly the one I’ve looked at for days or years; yet, it appears different. More alive & beautiful. Thanks for sharing, Kathy.
