12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

I love summer…when the heat takes a break, of course! Flowers dot the landscape with color and birds sing like they haven’t a care in the world. I think God gives us all this beauty to communicate His love and to draw us closer to Him. I ran across this reading titled, “God Whispers” that illustrates this. I have to work at not getting so busy with my To-Do list that I miss the I’m-here moments that God has waiting for me. Are you like me?

The man whispered, “God, speak to me,”
And the meadowlark sang.
But the man didn’t hear.

The man yelled, “God, speak to me,”
And thunder rolled across the sky.
But the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said, “God, let me see you,”
And a star shined brightly.
But the man did not see.

And the man shouted, “God, show me a miracle,”
And a life was born.
But the man did not notice.

So the man cried out in despair,
“Touch me, God, and let me know you are there.”
Whereupon God reached down and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

My prayer today is that all of the little ways God chooses to show me that He is there and that He cares, won’t go unnoticed by my crazy-busy life. I need to take the time to stop and smell the roses! How about you?
