Sunday Devotional With Mr. E: IMAGINATION

As artists, we run on imagination!  Our lives are filtered through the creative....not just by what we "do", but how we see, think, and respond to the world around us.  I'm rarely bored because my mind is always going at warp speed thinking of a million different things at once.  Filtering the deluge of information is more of the issue than not having enough creative ideas/thoughts.  Because of how my mind works, I have to be careful to keep my expectations in check.  I go down many paths in my mind before a situation is every played out in real life.  Anyone else have this problem?

"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what 
God has prepared for those who love him."  1 Corinthians 2:9  

In 1 Corinthians 2:9, we are reminded that our God has something in store for the believer that is going to leave us on our knees before the throne!  His ways are beyond anything we can imagine.  I love the idea, yet find it challenging to wrap my mind around something that is more amazing than anything I've seen, heard or imagined.  My "world" is a pretty colorful, loud, and an exciting place to be.  The fact that God is bigger,more creative, and so much more intentional leaves me in awe & wonder of Him.  Though I'm a reflection of  the Master Artist...He alone is worthy of all praise.  He alone is worthy to be glorified.  He alone is worthy to be magnified.  

Dear Lord
Allow me to be amazed by you.
Allow me to see you as you truly are.  
Allow me to be in awe & wonder of your plans.
Help me to not not get in the way...
or allow the things of this world to get in the way.
In Christ's Name
