I have been so busy lately at work I have barely had time to look up. I move from one task to the next hoping to make a dent in the pile only to have more added. It is overwhelming. I got up from my desk to do some filing and on the way back I saw a heart shaped cut out in my melted scented wax cubes in my scentsy warmer. It took me by surprise and made me stop! I immediately felt God’s presence and His Spirit whisper “I love you, I see you, keep marching on.” There I was in the middle of my chaotic and hectic day having a moment with My Lord that took my breath away. I was so grateful he stopped me to remind me of this beautiful truth. Do you see Him? Does He ever stop you to help you see His presence right in the middle of the hard and difficult?
This week I had the pleasure of catching up with one of my dearest friends that lives in North Carolina. We were right in the middle of our visit with one another when she stops me and says, “Do you mind holding for a second I have to take a picture of this amazing sunset that I am seeing right now.” Again, we both stopped to SEE His Presence. This time I got to see Him thanks to the eyes of a beautiful friend. Isn’t that neat of Him? Sometimes when we can’t see He will help us to see through the eyes of another. That’s how faithful He is. He surrounds us with His love at all times. He gives us our loved ones to help hold us up and endure, persevere and overcome.
I love that He is able to show Himself to us in immeasurable ways when we stop in our busyness, in the chaotic moments of life, and pause to invite Him in. This week the verse I have been meditating on says this, “Do you know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He WILL NOT grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who HOPE in The Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:29-31
Do you HOPE in Him? Do you look to Him to help you when you are weak? I hope you do because His promise IS TRUE…He gives STRENGTH to the weary and increases the power of the weak. He RENEWS us! He speaks to us in the heart shapes and sunsets and whispers “I love you, I see you, keep marching on.” How very sweet of Him. I pray He quiets you with His whispers today. I hope you get a glimpse of Him, and He stops you in your track. Be on the lookout for Him…it might be through your eyes or through the eyes of someone dear that He has given you. He is FAITHFUL!
Spend some time with Him in worship today. This is one of my all time favorites. I love every single word. Invite Him in, welcome Him…His glory is what our hearts long for to be overcome by His Presence, LORD! Be blessed today sweet friends and then be the blessing! #truth #gloryup
