A New Work Week

Walking through the woods one time, I was surprised to come upon this scene.  The woods were dark in the early morning and sun shone through the trees and lit the rock formation brilliantly in relation to the surroundings; an amazing sight.

It looked as though someone had gone to a lot of trouble to set up seating in the middle of the woods, maybe years ago for some purpose… or maybe it was created by the little stream that you can’t see in this picture; that’s probably it…

I know I keep pointing this out, but the wonders of God’s handiwork show up in the strangest places, for all of the Creation cries out for the glory of God!

Yet for most of us, as we beginning a new work week, we won’t have time to wander through the woods or sit quietly and admire the majesty of the mountains or the rolling waves on the beach. Instead, we’ll be in traffic, answering the phones or working on a bog project. At some point, we might well begin to feel a bit overwhelmed by it all, but we need not give in to that.

We can still pause for a moment to thank God for all He has done for us, to reflect on His handiwork, on His awesome grace, on His provision in times of trial. We can do this because even when we are at work or in traffic, He is with us. Yes indeed, He is right by our sides, ready to wrap us in His loving arms when we need it. All we have to do is turn to Him…

    I find I am more likely to appreciate the little things when I am stressed and can see little going right in my life. I will gaze at sun rays peeking through an otherwise storm-clouded sky. In the midst of a long, harsh winter, is when I have to search the hardest for the tiniest moments of joy. But I wouldn’t notice them without the dismal background. It’s a gift.
