Good morning, DearHeart.
Calving season is one of my favorite things on the farm. Babies dropping in fields everywhere. Sets in motion a mind full of the wonder of the intricate holiness of the world happening all around. It truly puts the “to do” list of everyday life in its place. You know, there are actual glorious and deeply meaningful moments happening in the holiest places of Heaven.
That’s the mystery isn’t it? That is the goal. To pray that the things of Heaven would touch Earth now, today… To touch
our cupcake making,
or home decorating, or
whatever it is you do.
That the beauty we create today would be touched and filled with the presence of a Holy God and people would connect the little dots of our lives and our art to Jesus.
“Sing to him; yes, sing his praises. Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds. Exult in his holy name; rejoice, you who worship the Lord. Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him. Remember the wonders he has performed, his miracles, and the rulings he has given,”
1 Chronicles 16:9-12 NLT
“In the very midst of the myriad of created wonders all around us, we have almost unknowingly lost the capacity to wonder. If the Holy Spirit should come again upon us as in earlier times, visiting church congregations with the sweet but fiery breath of Pentecost, we would be greater Christians and holier souls. Beyond that, we would also be greater poets and greater artists and greater lovers of God and of His universe”. —A.W. Tozer
Mmm, I love the way Tozer’s spirit works.
Exercise your wonder.
