40 Days of Now: Day 1

(This post is part of a series. If you'd like to know what it's all about, go here.)

Now. Lord, I lived today. I was present, looking for You in every moment. And You were there. You are here.

I saw you in the farmer at the farmer's market. He has worked the soil for years, faithfully bringing in his colorful harvest to feed us. I'm so thankful that You are faithful to work the soil of my heart and produce good things in me.

Thank You for these lovely vegetables we picked out today. You did such a great job when You made fruits and vegetables! There is nothing like a ripe tomato or a fresh ear of corn. This is summer at it's best, and it makes me love You all the more. Also, potatoes are among Your finest creations in my opinion. 

I want You to know that as much as I appreciate the food You provide us every day, nothing nourishes and sustains me like Your presence. Teach me to be present in Your presence. Hee, hee. I'm serious, though. I love You. ~R 

P.S. Thank You for the song, too.

So...how about you, friend? Where did you see Jesus today?

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:13)

  1. I saw Jesus in a lavish gift in our life side by side with a growing grey patch of hair on my husband's head. What I saw was echoed when I read Psalms 39: "Certainly every man at his best state is but a vapor." Jesus offers us eternal life and what he gives is so beyond what we experience here on earth---the good and bad are but passing vapors. I am thankful for the good, but hold it loosely; it is not my salvation or my forever.
