I have been lazy today, sitting out on the porch this morning, sipping my coffee and enjoying the sweetness of God's creation. The birds singing, the chickens clucking, the sound of the rooster in the wind, I can even hear the creek flowing, I just marvel at how God created us to hear, and see, touch and smell, and taste, oh my the senses he has given are so remarkable, have you ever just thought about this?
WOW..what if we could not see all this beauty, or smell the wonderful scents of home made bread baking, or even fish frying, and then to taste them, oh me. Then what if we could not touch and know things were hot or cold, or if things picked us, like cactus, or cut us like broken glass, what if we could not hear the bird singing, oh my what a dull and dangerous life we would live, wow my ramblings are taking over this morning, please be patient with me. I have found when I am rambling there is someone who needs what I ramble about, lol.
Now what if we could not hear our baby cry in the night when they need feeding or changing, have you ever thought of the marvelous detail our heavenly Father put into our creation?
Another sense God put in us, is the feelings of our heart, what if we did not feel compassion, or fear, or love, or pity, we would be just like robots, nothing effecting us in any way, well I am glad for all the ways God has put us together, and to think we are made in his image, now we look in the mirror and see our image, so, when we look do we see God in us? We need to see something different in us that sets us apart from those who do not have God living in them.
We need to be a shining light to this dark world around us. Everyone says God looks on the inside, this is so true, but, man cannot see our inside, so they look on the outside and try to see what we are made of, who we are, and what we stand for. We need to have the genuine feelings that we care about people and their feelings, and how we can make them feel better. We need to be separated, we need to be a peculiar people as God put it, we need to look different, so many Christians are striving to look like the world that they get lost in the world, our goal should be to look like God, our creator, to be like Christ our Saviour, and to live like we have the Holy Spirit living in us. Oh God help us to be more like thee, to have more compassion on others, to feel the pain they feel, and to be able to help them in some way. To live my life unto the lord, to be more like him.
Thanks for listening to all my ramblings today, and hope you have a wonderful week ahead, and that you will think about the things I have said here today too.
Be blessed, but better be a blessing ♥ Barbara
