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?"  

 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.

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!
