Lost and Found

Life is busy. We are busy. We are bombarded with school, emotions, family, church, and so many responsibilities. With our commitments and schedules, it’s very easy to blow through our lives without taking time to stop and appreciate the beauty that is all around us. Truly, God crafted an amazing world! God created this majestic earth for us to enjoy and appreciate, and sometimes we just plow through life without pausing to thank Him for it or to soak in the beauty. A few years ago, my mentor encouraged me to seek out the small moments and thank God for His presence in those times. She said that doing this had really helped her change her perspective on life, so I tried it. And let me tell you: it radically shifted my focus! When I am stressed and overwhelmed by life, I try to look for small blessings. I would encourage you to do the same. It is in a quiet walk through the neighborhood or a five-minute prayer time that God’s peace and presence can sometimes be felt most strongly. Remembering the Lord’s presence and talking with Him as you go throughout the day and enjoy His creation provides a reassurance that nothing else can give. Taking the time to slow down and enjoy the calm moments in our lives helps us to focus on God (Isaiah 26:3). • Chelsea Leigh • Do you feel bogged down by the stress of life? What are some practical ways you can slow down and rest? • Read Philippians 4:4-8. How do God’s peace and presence improve your perspective? You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)
