Sometimes I get so focused on doing something great for God, that in the process of that I lose sight of Him. It definitely shouldn’t be this way, but so easily happens.
This morning, I spent countless hours trying to figure out how to work and customize this blog. Of course, the whole purpose of it is to glorify and honor Jesus, but I wasn’t even thinking of the big picture. It was more about what font something was, the color scheme, or if a picture was centered perfectly. We get so enraptured in little things in our daily lives to stop and think if any of it will benefit our eternity.
I walked outside to find that today is one of the most beautiful days we’ve had this whole summer. It’s definitely beyond any creation of the Internet. There are pairs of butterflies flying around the flowers, a gentle breeze blowing, birds chirping, sun shining, and blueberry pies in the making. God’s creation is all around us screaming His glory, but how often do we stop to appreciate it?
Today God has shown me many things: how to enjoy life, He is our forever constant, He is always going to be God, He will never stop being Creator, He wants us to seek the bigger picture, and know that His love for us is always pursuing our hearts.
So today, instead of trying to take things into your own hands or spend all day on the Internet, I challenge you to: go for a walk, ride your bike, look at the clouds, or smell a flower. Be a little adventurous! You never know what you may find. Allow God to show Himself to you in the way He desires. You are loved and pursued by the Creator of the world.
