When our eyes are open to God’s work in our lives, we can see glory in the gritty reality of ordinary.
Have days made dazzling by His grace.
Gain hope and encouragement from seeing His hand upon our lives.
Find that our vision expands exponentially the more we are attuned to seeing the supernatural and extraordinary in the everyday.
Observe touches of God’s loving ways filling the commonplace with potential and promise.
As I have attempted to look with deliberation at these things, my heart is filled with wonder, gratitude and praise.
Days remain challenging.
There is struggle and pain, sickness and sadness fighting to control us.
He is always here to offer hope, help, strength and encouragement.
May your heart also beat thankful, swell with awe and gratitude for all the myriad ways He leaves a mark of grace on lives thirsty for His Presence.
with lack of rush or hurry
deceptively slight and slow
as barely a hint of maiden-blush pink
provided a tint to tinge edges
of clouds dancing fluffy, low
to brush rooftops and chimneys
with apparent ease
within the blink of an eye
as I observed with awed
and rooted gaze
the sky lit up in fiery
rays of scarlet-red bleeding
into toasted tangerine and gold
a veritable panoply of praise
very soon took hold
watched rapturous, sore-amazed
with wonder in my head as God
poured glory Hallelujah out upon
this familiar place I trod
in bygone healthier days
now wreathed in holy blaze
as earth was put to bed
“Earth’s crammed with heaven ~ and every common bush afire with God” ~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
