2018: Page 3

Some thoughts, lessons, and/or reflections for the day:

  • I’m still not sure what I think about this abbreviated format for each day’s page, but I’ve not yet felt compelled to return to the fuller version or do anything different than this. 🙂
  • Cleaning up and putting things away after a prayer-focused event is a lot less exciting than the setup and preparation.
  • Uncertainty can be both frightening and enticing.
  • I finished up the writing of next week’s prayer guide as I spent time focused on some things God wants us to seek.
  • When I seek the things of God, I find the things of me become less important.
  • As I worked this morning the following song lyrics filled my mind: “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”
  • I am amazed at how well my aging eyes can focus on individual snowflakes and the big picture scene at the same time — the eyes God created are much more complex than my best camera equipment.
  • Sometimes I think it would be nice to see into the future before I make decisions, but I think it would often frighten me as much as it would help me.
  • I didn’t take any pictures today, so today’s photo is from a January 2017 trip to Lake Michigan.  Even when it has the feel of a frozen tundra, there is beauty to be found.
  • When we limit our view of beauty to what we like, we will often miss the best God has to offer.
