Cold and rainy mornings are the perfect combination for sleeping. The rain hitting the window and the warm covers call for anything except getting up. But most of us must get up, we must start the day. We can start the day dreading it. We can wish we were not going to work or having to get our kids to school. We could long for a different life. Or we could start our day completely different. This day could be the day we get a peek at God. Are we looking for HIM in the ordinary moments of our lives? He’s here, don’t miss him.
We miss things we do not seek. When our mindset is stuck in the mud and we feel defeated before we even get started, we miss the joys that surround us. We miss the moments of majesty which come and go in the blink of an eye. We miss how God shows up in our lives. We, instead, sink into our problems or our worries. We forget God is with us. We forget there are so many things to enjoy. We miss the opportunities just around the corner.
But not today. On this cold, rainy morning, get up and seek God. He isn’t hiding, we are just blind from seeing him because we aren’t looking. Seek his goodness, it abounds. Seek his love, it is overwhelmingly good. Seek his mercy, we all need it. Catch a glimpse of our Creator. May we see even more clearly today.
Blessings as you seek HIM and find HIM today!
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud,
be gracious to me and answer me!
8 “Come,” my heart says, “seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, do I seek.
