Listen & Remember

Keep your face always toward the sunshine –

and shadows will fall behind you.

~ Walt Whitman ~

God touches my heart with song. For weeks He has been reaching out through, Danny Gokey’s song, Haven’t Seen It Yet. I can hear it when I go to sleep at night and when I wake in the morning. I have dismissed its message more times than not. I’m finally listening and sharing.

Why? It became clearer today, I thought maybe I could sleep in. Nope. I have two dogs and a grandpuppy. They do not care about the weekend. When it’s potty time, it’s potty time. I was not a happy camper. As I slumped out of bed, I did not know what was waiting for me. God did.

I walked into the brisk, crisp morning half asleep thinking ‘ugh, another hour would have been sweet’. As I looked up into the sky, I was mesmerized by its beauty. I was greeted by the most spectacular sunrise. Breathtakingly vivid colors of pink, purple, yellow, and orange painted the morning sky.

Not unlike everyone else, life can throw me curveballs financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally and it totally stresses me out. During these times, I forget to trust that He is working behind the scenes. He is painting my destiny.

It does not change anything, but I do find some comfort. I know things will change in time – in His time and in His way. If I focus on the beauty around me, I will find peace and tranquility in memories. Once upon a time, there was a girl who never forgot and always trusted.

Don’t forget the things that He has done before

And remember He can do it all once more
