When We See Past The Distractions

When we get distracted by the earthly things - the busyness, the chores, the schedules - we forget to look for the everyday miracles in our lives. The quiet blessings which constantly reveal His glory to us.

They are all around us.  We can see them if we simply slow down.  Breathe it in.  SEEK the small joys.

The miracle in a child's laugh... a sunrise... a bird song... the wind blowing... the smell of a cup of coffee... the touch of a loved one... the complexity of your own hands.

Look around you. Savor the moments. Be thankful.

  1. What a wonderful reminder to slow down and be refreshed in God's blessings. I am so guilty of following my to do list and then feeling overwhelmed. My heart will focus on my do's rather than the wonders around me. Thank you for reminding me to be aware and SEEK Him in all things! :)

  6. Beckey, I love this post because it is so true. We have to slow down, and sometimes stop to see the beauty in the day. I am doing a series on my blog on Mondays entitled 'everyday jesus: seeing him in the daily-ness of life'. Would love for you to check it out and offer an everyday jesus story of your own that I could feature. http://www.leahadams.org/everyday-jesus-seeing-him-in-children-of-the-day/
