Do You Remember When You Explored the World?

Too often we take the same way to work, to the store, to church and yet we see nothing. Because we have seen it all before, it becomes a blur as we process other things a long the way. When we get into this rut, miss those serendipity moments placed before us of awe and wonder. Our life become routine and perhaps even dull.

It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23
Each morning we awaken with a clean slate. We have numerous opportunities to see anew. To be refreshed and grateful for the new day. Many did not get one.
With this new day, we get new mercy for each situation facing us. When we ask Him to open the eyes of our heart, we will see the new things.
One day my granddaughter, Curstie, and I were coming home from a shopping trip. The children were getting fussy and she popped in the CD by Mandisa called Good Morning. The whole attitude in the car changed immediately with her littles joining in with gusto.
Ask to have your eyes opened to all that is good and then join us in singing!

  1. you are so right about taking the same routes and being on auto pilot, missing what’s along the way. I’m working on seeing this right now and on seeing things as they really are in the process.
