Today Reminder – 01 May 2014 (Day 1 – Everywhere)

A reminder for today
For the LORD is a great God, a great King above all gods. He holds in his hands the depths of the earth and the mightiest mountains. The sea belongs to him, for he made it. His hands formed the dry land, too. (Psalm 95:3-5)

And yes it is May. What a wonderful time of the year as we watch seasons change and the cold creeping in every open space in your clothes each morning. It is autumn in South Africa, and just as beautiful it is in summer it has a remarkable beauty to it too. Autumn comes in to open the way for winter and everywhere we see change as temperatures starts to drop. With my two boys I have not been a huge fan of winter, but I must admit I love the brown and red colours we see as trees start to take on their winter form.

My theme for this month is “Everywhere”. I have a deep desire to reveal God to you in everything and everywhere. These verses are so fitting because our God is great and the universe echoes His greatness. Our God is everywhere, because He holds in His hands the depths of the earth and the mightiest mountains. He is the creator of all and all belongs to Him from the sea to the dry land. 

As we walk into this day I just want you to become aware of all around you. Look at the roads, the cars, the houses and then the people. Feel the crisp cold air and smell your surroundings, from the familiar smell of your home to the unfamiliar smells as you travel to work or school or wherever you are going to. 

Do not just see, but become aware off everything. Remember the sounds and the lights and close your eyes and allow it all to settle deep within you. Let it all in and take a moment just to enjoy it, because that is where we will find Him. God is in the quiet moments when we are completely alone and completely aware.

Let His presence fill you and let us start today. Day 1 in our month of God awareness.  He is with you.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
