These beautiful flowers are being held by a--YES LOL--wine decanter. We just moved into our first apartment and when my best friend’s wonderful mother brought us flowers as a housewarming gift, this wine decanter was all we could scrounge up. BUT HOW PERFECT IS IT?! You can pick it up, it’s versatile, it’s fun...okay okay-- I’m done. BUT
This fun little example reminded me of a bigger idea that I’ve continued to stumble upon over the past few days, which is this: “Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare” Psalm 40:5
God’s glory is beyond comprehension. His wonders & majesty are all around us--but often times we are too distracted to take notice. When is the last time you looked up at the sky and just thought “Wow, how vast is the kingdom of God.” He creates little miracles all around us, every single day. His work is not finished in this world, or in you.
In the final line of the book of John he writes,
“Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.” John 21:25
This might be my favorite uttering in the entire Bible. I think it sums everything up so simply & beautifully. Don’t take it from me, take it from a disciple who walked alongside Jesus while he physically inhabited the earth. Jesus did so much for others in just 33 years that the entire PLANET doesn’t suffice as a library to hold the records. Just think what Jesus has done since then. What He’s doing NOW in the present.
And make no mistake. He is working in YOUR life. Bask in His glory. Praise Him & thank Him for His perfection, for His love.
