Morning Canopy

This is the view out my sunroom window.  One morning, early, I sat alone and just enjoyed the quiet, the coffee, and the prayer time.  Such an amazing thing - starting the day with the knowledge that Christ is present and will, if I allow Him to, direct each step that I take.  If I let Him, He'll guide, instruct, redeem, energize, heal, and restore me through His presence.  That is the real and promised result of worship, of simple awareness (acknowledgement) of His awesome presence.  I think that's where being a visual learner really helps.  If I close my eyes and talk to Him, I can see Him there with me.  When I look outside my window and see all the beauty He created it just overwhelms and amazes me that I am witnessing the actual character of my Creator - strength, depth, gentleness, beauty, grace, sacrifice, provision, presence.  Wow.  Praying you will find quiet moments to gather strength, courage, and direction in His amazing presence.!
God's blessings.
