Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

Sunday Devotional With Mr.E: Am I Missing Something?
Have you ever taken something/someone for granted? You get use to it/them. They no longer seem special, just "the norm". A new restaurant, romance, music, friend...at first you talk about them to everyone you know (and some you might not know). Then you mention it every once & awhile. Soon people are having to ask you...."Hey, what was that restaurant you went on & on about?" "How is your relationship going?" "Are you still enjoying working out?"
Psalm 96: 1- 6
When I first saw Christo's work, I thought it was.....interesting. The grand scale was enough to cause awe/wonder, but I still wondered WHY? Am I missing something? However, as I asked the question "WHY?" about Christo's work....I realized something. I was noticing something I might have overlooked otherwise. Somehow the art brought attention to what had been right in front of me all along. Though I appreciate his work....it made me appreciate "HIS" work even more! Christo's art brings back the awe & wonder to what had been there all along.
Too often I find myself use to the goodness of God. I take for granted His gift of love, grace & life. I forget the blessing I have in His Word! There are so many out there asking..."Am I missing something?" I want to point people to the Lord. I want to put a spot light on His awesomeness. I want to bring Him honor...and glory. He is great and worthy to be praised! May I never become so use to His creation...His grace...His presence in my life that I "forget" or "forgo" giving Him the praise!
