What do you see? The day I have given is gift again, but in normalcy lost. So blessed are My children, that they themselves surrounded and supported, without means to count, miss the very hand of the Father on them. Are you too missing the deep blessing of this day? Are you missing the life breathed in? Each day of the earth flees with little notice. Open again the eyes of the child of My creation. Within you there is still My child. Enjoy the pleasures I bring. See the good, for it still flourishes, even among thorns and thistles there is fruit still, splendor beyond the destruction. Look higher to My face. I am seen in the beauty placed before you. Breathe in My Spirit through all that is good that holds you. Be not conformed to this world, but be made free in My love, My provision for you, and your great value within My creation. Look not only on the drudgery, but lift up, that you might be refreshed.
Phil 4:8 (ESV) – Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Bottom Line: Constant business, disappointments, deadlines and distractions can cause us to whip through days and weeks with our focus always on the next thing. Consider using this weekend to unplug and recharge amongst the wonder and beauty that He has placed around you. Focus awhile on all of your blessings. It will be good for you, and will bring your Father pleasure as you appreciate all your blessings from Him. Once refreshed, His Word can work anew in you.
