It brought to my mind the beautiful skies I so enjoyed on my way home from Pennsylvania yesterday. There were times when I simply had to make myself look at the road because I was so fixated on His majestic paintings. The trees in PA are starting to turn and the mountaintops are breath taking. We came across a mountain where the fog was level with us and dangling over the valley. I just wanted to stare. It simply took my breath away.
Every morning driving into work I get to visit with His creativity. It amazes me how I drive the same route day in and day out, but yet what I see is always different. He always has something new for me to view. It brings me so close to Him during our prayer time heading down the road. This is why I need to pray for God's hand of protection over me each day before I get behind that wheel. It would be so easy to become so entrenched in Him and lose sight of the fact that I am driving.
I find such joy and peace in His designs … in His beauty … in the nature He has created just for us. Yet, at the same time, it saddens me. So many people get on the road daily and they never notice the blueness of the sky … the precision in the design of the clouds … the perfection in the colors … or hear His soft whisper through it all saying, "I did this just for you". I could not imagine a day without looking forward with anticipation of what He will share with me on any given day.
Today, just for a moment, pause to see what is around you. Allow Him, through His canvas, draw you closer to Him. What He has to offer is far better than anything the world promises. Give it all over to Him today and see what difference a day can truly mean.
