So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ,
act like it.
Pursue the things over which Christ presides.
Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground,
absorbed with the things right in front of you.
Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.
Colossians 3:1-2 (The Message)
I is likely that I will not see another sunrise over the ocean until next summer. Yet, I will have the opportunity to see to God’s handiwork every day…if I just “Lookup, and be alert to what is going on around Christ.” It is easy for me to keep my head down, buried in what I think is so important at the moment…but I need to look up, see what is going on around Him and give thanks, be patient and TRUST.
Lord, thank you for this gem of scripture that you sent to me this morning. Help me to look up, to be alert to the many, many blessing you have in store for me – not just today, but everyday. Help me to look up when I feel overworked, tired, stressed…happy, joyful and carefree…ALL of these are gifts from you, even if some do not feel like gifts at the time. Thank you for the lessons I am learning from the various things going on around me and in my life. I have SO many blessings and ALL are gifts from YOU. I praise you and I thank you. Help me to pursue the things over which you preside. Help me to see you in the ordinary, in the daily, in the mundane and in the “I have too much to do moments.” You are there, I just need to look for you. Thank you for the gift of your son and the gift of eternal life through him.
One of my bests gifts is pictured here…not the motorcycle…the 6’6″ young man standing behind it. He has had it a few months, but I don’t think I’ve ever posted this picture. For some reason, I felt compelled to share this today. God is teaching me so many things about relationships, since Andy moved away…good things, things that require patience, things that require love, things that require TRUST in Him (the Lord) and trusting Andy…He will take care of Andy, just as he takes care of me.
Lord, thank you…for ALL of it…the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, the extraordinary and the mundane…ALL are gifts from you. I thank you and I praise you for all you are doing in my life and that of my family.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day, filled with reminders of what a great God we serve! Remember to… Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is
