It has been said that people hear what they listen for and see what they look for. For example, if someone attends their first ever opera dreading it and expecting to be bored and annoyed, they are going to leave bored and annoyed!
I want to train my spiritual eyes and mind to look for God’s love and beauty every day because, if the above holds true, I will find it!!
I want to be creative, imaginative, positive and excited about my life! How could you not be when you belong to God?! I love the love that He shows each day and I look for it! It is a great practice. Look for the love of God in your day – it’s everywhere!
It’s in the sunshine that announces the new day. It’s in the sleepy smiles of your children as you wake them for school. It’s in your car that starts up and gets you where you need to go today. It’s in the work that you do as you honor God with your time and talents. It’s in the clean, cool water that you drink. His love is in your eyes – the ability to see life, people and every day beauty. What an incredible thing to have sight! God’s love is in others – kind words, pleasant exchanges, extra efforts and apologies. God’s love is the house you live in and the people you share it with. Most importantly, God’s love is in Jesus – His Son. God chose to allow Him to live inside of you – how close is that?! Our Savior couldn’t be any closer!
God’s love – it is everywhere – even inside of me!!
