“All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.” – John 1:3
Have you ever taken a moment to pause, contemplate, and appreciate everything that surrounds you? Too often we miss the chance of enjoying the beauty of the present moment because we are so caught up in beating the stop light and meeting the deadline. How about we slow down and lay low for a while?
Take a break and give yourself some RnR to the beach or go camping. Traveling away from the hustle and bustle of the city is one way of realizing how much time we have wasted doing things so fast without taking a moment to stop and reflect on all the blessings that we have.
Every second is a divine miracle. Every person is a precious gift. Look at the stars and marvel at their brilliance and beauty. Feel the cool mountain breeze on your skin as you go hiking. Listen to the birds as they serenade early mornings with their God-given voices.
“These are miracles because they are mysteries.” – Max Lucado
These precious moments are God’s little ways of reminding us that He is the grand artist. Without His master design, everything around us will not be as beautiful as it is. Let us offer our praises to Him for the wonderful works of His hands. Let us give tribute to Him who has sanctified all creation. How great is our God!
