a moving tapestry of clouds
floating through the sky
if I don’t take the time to look
they’ll quickly pass me by
I was running late on this particular morning. I stopped into the grocery store to pick up a few things and then quickly dashed to my car. All of a sudden I looked up- and the sky took my breath away. The clouds were swirling and moving so quickly- just like I had been doing moments before. I was fascinated by the speed and beauty of the clouds that day. Like a kaleidoscope- the lighting and colors were changing continuously. How did I go all this morning without seeing this spectacular sight?
I had wasted so much energy on rushing around when all I really needed to do was look up and spend a few moments with Him… to ask for His help-to calm me, guide me, and help to make the best use of my time. God knows exactly what we need and how to get our attention- if only we are looking for Him.
I took out my phone to take this photo, and thanked Him for slowing me down again…a few precious moments spent with Him makes all the difference.
Lord, help me to not only see you- but to intentionally seek You today.
Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. Psalm 119:18
