Sunday Devotional With Mr. E: You Can See It

Many artists are like walking billboards for their craft.  When you are so passionate about something, it shows.  It comes out in how you talk, what you talk about, how you live your life, where you invest your time & money, and even sometimes on your clothing!   Your home & the homes of your friends & family look like your personal galleries.  It will often be that those you are close with will also sing your praises everywhere they go, and share your gifts & talents with others.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1

The artistry of God is undeniable.  His amazing work is everywhere we look.   However, we can become numb to this fact as we go about living our lives.  We can become distracted with work, family, friends, entertainment, or a host of other things vying for our attention.  When life becomes challenging, bad things happen, or stresses/worries threaten to overtake us....we can be reminded of God's goodness through the proclamation of His creation.  If we were to just look up & outside ourselves for a moment, we would be able to see the fingerprints of God all around us.  This brings such a reassurance of His faithfulness in our lives.  It reminds us of His awesome power.  It shows us of His never ending love for us.  

If you are struggling...make the time to spend with God in the midst of His creation. Being surrounded by His handy work reminds us that we can trust Him with all the things that are troubling us.  Even during the storms of life...His peace is real.  He is there.  He will meet you where you are.
