Our moment to Be still…to Be fed by the Word of God…to Be grateful.
Scripture reference: Matthew 6:30
This is our B moment, our moment to be still, to be fed by the Word of God, to be grateful.
This morning I am feeling the Power of God’s Springtime. Some time ago I started what I call are my God Walks. It’s a form of exercise that allows me to be in communion with God, which means I’m walking without music blaring in my ears. I was recently walking, and this beautiful patch of flowers caught my eye because of the way they were positioned at an angle. To me, it looked like they were doing a graceful yoga stretch towards the light. In a flash, it felt like these flowers were teaching me. It caused me to reflect that if these flowers are stretching towards their light, how much am I stretching towards my light, or rather the source of my Light. And I think, honestly, I’ve mastered how to stretch my hand to God when I am in need. I’m also really good at stretching my hand back in praise and thanksgiving. Where I can grow is stretching in my worship, which is dwelling in His presence for no reason at all. I can also be more of service to others, not out of duty, but out of love.
I think Springtime reminds me of one of the ways that God loves us and when we stretch ourselves back, that is our expression of our love back to Him.
The words on my heart are, “If God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t He more surely care for you.” Matthew 6:30
