Take the Time

Psalm 40:5
Living Bible

O Lord, my God, many and many a time you have done great miracles for us, and we are ever in Your thoughts.  Who else can do such glorious things?  No one else can be compared with You.  There isn't time to tell of all Your wonderful deeds.

I thought it was time to stop and take the time to mention how awesome God is to me.  I feel so insignificant most of the time.  I can see my failures and struggles all too clearly - and I know He can, too!  At times I find myself wasting a lot of time worrying about this or that, or trying to figure out this life as we know it.

No one likes a hard time, a bad time, etc.  But aren't those times the exact times that we experience the miracles?  I would suggest that every day we experience miracles as a result of the thoughts and plans God has for us.  Are we too busy worrying and trying to negotiate life that we can't see them?  I can only assume so, because every time I take the time to look back at my life and where I've come from and what He has brought me through, I see so many things that can only be His handiwork.  What more could I see if I had His eyes?

With what I can see, there is certainly not enough time to tell about it all.  However, at this time, I am taking the time - He has been so good to me.  He has brought me through the good, the bad, and the ugly.  He has blessed me much more than I deserve.  And every day He takes the time to remind me of who He is and who I am to Him.
