I want to give thanks. And then I wake up and life is full steam ahead. I don't stop until I collapse at the end of the day. Did I even pause once?
I can't say that I always do. I wish I did. When I have the clarity of mind to choose stillness, if even for a moment, I do see Jesus. I see His beautiful hand of blessing held out toward me.
Will I take what He offers? Life, fullness, joy. Absolutely.
I don't always pause. But this particular morning I did.
Sitting at my kitchen table... reading my Bible, drinking tea in a cup that I made, watching the early morning sun pour in through the windows making everything glow, and it was a moment that brought genuine peace to my otherwise insane day.
Thank you Jesus for your open hand.
344. Early morning sunlight that makes things glow.
