The day is easier when I rise with intention. And I can’t help but smile when You wake me before the alarm, anxious to have our morning cup of fellowship. Please know, I’m learning to always accept. For Your rest lingers longer than extra slumber any day.
We always begin the same and still it never grows old. I peel back the canvas curtain just enough to see what You’ve painted for me today. And I notice the extra splash of lavender and the brilliant rays of goldenrod and wonder how anyone can miss…You…when You shine so brilliantly.
I see You, Lord. Good morning.
The songbirds You rose earlier are already on their second chorus and as I join in the praise, I feel it. Your promises of new mercies wash over me. Oh yes, it’s going to be a great day. For You made it. And I thank You for it.
Each day You have something new for me in These Words I’ve read countless times. I see why they call it Living as they breathe new life into me once again. Please, Jesus, give me the strength to apply it today.
I feel You, Father. I’m ready.
Sometimes life overwhelms. I’m blown back by drama unexpected and I nearly lose my footing when I hear a whisper. A Spirit’s gentle reminder of what grace has done for me. And I pause long enough for my body to catch up to my soul.
I hear You, Abba. Thank You for new perspective.
The day turns to evening. Rays dim to sparkles of light. And as the moon illuminates in a beauty one could never describe, I look back briefly on where You took me today. And in polaroid fashion, I think of the elder gentleman switching hands with his cane to catch a door for his bride. My 4-year-old dancing after learning something new. A note from a dear friend that resonated so deep I still feel the fire within.
I saw grace in action and love win. I saw the power of worship and the strength of community.
I saw You, God. All day long. You. The Invisible One.
Please, remind me again tomorrow…
I’ll See You then…

I give You praise,
O Great Invisible God,
For the moon in the space of the dark night,
For the smile on a face in the sunlight.
I give You praise, O Great Invisible God,
For the sound of the storm on the window,
For the morning adorned with a new snow,
For the tears on the face of the old man
Made clean by the grace of the good Lamb.
And oh, I long to see Your face,
Invisible, Invisible God.
All the works that You have made
Are clearly seen and plain as day,
So mighty and tender.
O Lord, let me remember
That I see You everywhere,Invisible God
In the seed that descends to the old earth
And arises again with a new birth;
In the sinner who sinks in the river
And emerges again, delivered.
Your power eternal, Your nature divine.
All creation tells the tale
That Love is real and so alive.
I feel You, I hear You,
Great God Unseen I see You
In the long, cold death that the winter brings
And the sweet resurrection
How about you, friend? Have you seen Him today? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
