With strength, hope, and mental endurance renewed after time in prayer and God's Word this morning I made the short drive to work.
Once in the driveway I scan the playground and wood's border in hopes of spying the deer that sometime frolic about this time of year. While I didn't see multiple deer, there was one. As it enjoyed a snack I decided to attempt to capture it with my camera. The cars pulling in were not a disturbance and I actually made it on the grass as I snapped a few photos. Breathtaking...
Thank you Jesus for a visual reminder of the blessing of my morning devotion! It is a pleasure, joy, and honor to praise you for all you've created. Although this beautiful creature leaped and bounded its way back into the woods - it brought an even bigger smile on my face as I crossed the threshold of the school. "It is going to be a great day!" And it was. So much to be thankful for...Have you slowed down lately to enjoy the beauty of God's creation today?
It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.
He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
2 Samuel 22:33 - 35
As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
Psalm 42:1 - 2a
