Come and see the wonders of God; his acts for humanity are awe-inspiring.
~ Psalm 66:5 CSB
IN AWE WORSHIP GOD
Our God really is an awesome God. He is omniscient and omnipresent, yet near and involved in our world and in our lives. He not only created but is sustaining it, all by His own power. We worship and praise Him because He is worthy. When we think of God and notice the beauty of creation with all the intricate details, we can’t help but be in awe.
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.Hebrews 11:3 NKJV
I am privileged to live in a rural area where the view from my front porch is beautiful. And it doesn’t matter what season or what kind of weather. It is enjoyable to sit on my porch and just take in the beauty. Clouds are always changing. Sometimes the sky is the deepest blue without a cloud in sight. And other times it’s overcast but the view is still awe-inspiring.
Clouds and rainbows, hills full of trees Sunshine and shadow on a porch swing Pink impatiens blooming in pots Deep blue petunias dotted with white A midnight sky twinkling with stars So much beauty in my front porch view Inspires me to creativity ~gsw~
Celebrate with ferocious joy Embrace the perfumed morning breeze Explore the brilliant dazzling end of night Remember secret childlike magic as you See a delicious picture window universe Listen with your heart Drink in liquid laughter Linger slow and long Bring home healing and peace ~gsw~
The one who pursues righteousness and faithful love
will find life, righteousness, and honor.Proverbs 21:21 CSB
Life is meant to be enjoyed. I don’t mean we have to be happy-go-lucky, always smiling and never be discouraged or disappointed. We don’t know what a day may bring, but we do know that God has promised never to leave us completely on our own. His ways are not our ways, but His ways are always best.
As I trust in God, knowing He loves me with an everlasting love, I don’t have to be afraid. If I keep my focus on God and not myself or my circumstances, I need not worry. Instead, I can pursue creative interests, reach out to others to show love and encouragement and much more. There is freedom to enjoy life, to find beauty in the smallest things and to have peace. Nothing can separate me from the love of God in Christ.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38-39
Lord, you are my strength and shield Keep me ever by Your side Lord, to You my life I yield You will always be my guide Lord, Your Word will light my way Keep me ever true to You Lord, I look to You each day You have made my heart brand new Lord, I praise Your holy name Keep me as Your loving child Lord, You've freed me from all shame You have marked me reconciled Lord, I come before You now Keep me in Your truth and grace Lord, with gratitude I bow You are worthy of all praise ~gsw~
