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.


  1. It couldn't have been said better. I find a miracle of God in my life everyday. When I first turned to the Lord Jesus in 1965, a sinner headed for hell, I somehow knew I could not serve the Lord without His help; That is why I said to Him that day, "Lord Jesus, if you will help me I will serve you from this day to the day I die." He immediately cleansed my heart and mind of all the corruption accumulated over the years and said, "Read My Word and start in Matthew." I can testify that He has kept His word to me and performed that miracle of cleansing in my life everyday since that day. I am not worthy of the least of His mercies and He has shown to me the greatest of His mercies. I truly love the Lord Jesus. But I also know that He loved me first and without Him I could do nothing.

  2. Beautiful! God is a miracle working God. Everyday, I try to remember to thank Him for breath to praise Him with; every beat of my heart is a miracle. God is better to me than I could ever deserve. I'll love and serve Him till He comes!
