Hello everyone…and a “Happy Tuesday” is coming your way from me! Welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I pray that your day will truly be a special one…with many blessings from above!
Well…as I’m spending time with you today, I’m beginning to wonder if I’m going to be buried in snow…lol. Yesterday, we got about 5 inches of that white stuff…and last night, we got an added 3-5 inches more. One thing about this winter wonderland I live in; is that God is truly inspiring me with beautiful words to write.
As I look out my office window, I see solar lights that appear to be ice cream cones, while a big birdhouse, towards the back of the yard appears to have grown another roof…a white one. One thing I know…everything that comes from above is for a reason…and definitely serves a purpose. I just haven’t found out exactly what purpose this snow serves…other than I am writing even deeper from the heart.
One thing I can say…was that this morning was a beautiful morning…as the sun finally came back and made me feel as if I was in the land of the living again. As the sun swept across the way…the tall pines stood out, as the tips of each bow appeared to be painted in white, while shadows of each tree lay across a bed of snow that seemed to be sparkling like jewels. The birds came from everywhere and were fluttering…as they were excited to see food, in a barren land that was only filled with mounds of snow.
You know…if nothing else can be seen through this kind of weather; I have come to see that beauty can be found…if we would only look around us and soak in the things that surround us. Sometimes, I just love to stare out the window and see what I experience, as I look at each detail, of where my eyes are pointed. I truly believe that when we slow down and take in the moments that surround us each day; then we will truly experience the presence of God with it.
How many times do we cry out for God…wondering where He is…especially at a time, when we need Him the most? Don’t we realize that His presence surrounds us, through everything we see…feel…taste and experience in life…for He is the creator of it all.
Sometimes I think that we would truly come to understand God even more, if we would only look for Him more. The Bible says that whatever we seek…we will find and whatever door we knock on, it will be opened to us…so can we say that we are seeking God’s presence…and knocking on the door; that can open us up, to the light of His loving and powerful presence?
You know…I have a relationship with God; that I never thought I’d experience in this lifetime. When I write, I see everything in a much different light; then ever before…and you want to know why? Because I seek deep and as I knock on the door, with all my heart; God opens everything up to me.
No matter what you walk through in life, may I encourage you today, to seek and look beyond the norm…to all that God longs to show you! You will never be disappointed!
Well…it’s time for me to go for now! I have truly enjoyed our visit today…and I hope and pray that you will have a great Tuesday! Take care and I will hope to be back with you again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
