Those are the words that come to mind from my experience of walking 6 miles around Clear Creek Park during the early morning hours. I snapped this picture this week and found it absolutely breath taking. I can get pretty deep and challenging in my Blog entries, but this one speaks for itself. It is about as simple of a blog entry that I have ever written, but at the same time, it is about as complex. Did you notice how I kept referring to their creator in the above paragraph? It is not that He is not my creator as well, but rather that sometimes I forget to stop and capture the beauty of my creator all around me. As Americans, we tend to get so caught up in noise and clanging cymbals, that we forget to take time out and realize the Majesty around us. When was the last time that you looked at dew this way, or is it just an annoyance on your wet running shoes? When was the last time that you viewed the awestruck power of fog on our level, or is it a matter for your high beams and wipers to contend with? When was the last time that you stopped to give a squirrel the right of way?
My fellow brothers and sisters, please take some time out of your busy schedule to take pause. To realize the Majesty and awestruck significance of how God manifests Himself around you. In order for me to also acknowledge Him as my Creator, I must also give creedence to all those other creations around me.
Upon searching in scripture for the word "morning," I found multiple references to "early morning." I am not talking about intoxicating oneself with coffee, then sitting down and watching the morning news. I am talking about finding oneself humbled in the presence of an Almighty God early in the morning before the day begins. Before you start your day and begin your journey, how about asking God for clear direction. We are so dependent upon our GPS when we travel, that we forget that God should be the GPS of our lives. In order for Him to program that direction, try humbly submitting to Him in quietness and solitude and acknowledging that HE IS KING OF THE UNIVERSE!
