"Job, are you listening? Have you noticed all this?
Stop in your tracks! Take in God's miracle-wonders!
Do you have any idea how God does it all,
how he makes bright lightning from dark storms,
How he piles up the cumulus clouds—
all these miracle-wonders of a perfect Mind?”
Job 37:14-18 The Message

Are there times in your life when saddness seems to prevail? That you feel your faith is being taxed? There's uncertainity--or worse, you're just going through the motions of life and living?

Don't give in to it. Think upon this verse and so many more like it. God is a God of miracle wonders! Even in your sorrow, your saddness, your grief--He is there. Eyes filled with compassion and understanding. Lips to kiss the tears away. Arms that want to hold you tight and give you security--assurance that even if you don't understand why--He does. You don't need to.

All you need to do is crawl up into His big, familiar lap and have a good cry. Pour out all your feelings, your saddness, your questions. Let Him have it all. And when you are completely spent and empty--allow Him to do His miracle wonder in you. When you are empty, then He has room to fill you up with His Holy Spirit, His peace, His sparkling joy.

Our God is an Awesome God! Rejoice in this day!
