Today’s thought – See God in Everything

Sept 17 at bob's 002Tis a nice spot for morning devotions and coffee.

Good Morning

1 Samuel 3:15-18
And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the Lord And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision. Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I. And he said, What is the thing that the Lord hath said unto thee? I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee. And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him.  And he said,
It is the Lord: let him do what seemeth him good.

See God in everything,
and God will calm and color all that thou dost see!
It may be that the circumstances of our sorrows
will not be removed, their condition will remain unchanged;
but if Christ , as Lord and Master of our life,
is brought into our grief and gloom,
“HE will compass us about with songs of deliverance.”
To see HIM, and to be sure that His wisdom cannot err,
His power cannot fail, His love can never change;
to know that even His direst dealings with us
are for our deepest spiritual gain, is to be able to say,
in the midst of bereavement, sorrow, pain, and loss,
“The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away;
blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Nothing else but seeing God in everything will make us
loving and patient with those who annoy and trouble us.
They will be to us then only instruments for accomplishing
His tender and wise purposes toward us,
and we shall even find ourselves at last
inwardly thanking then for the blessings they bring us.
Nothing else will completely put an end
to all murmuring or rebelling thoughts.
—H. W. Smith

Look for God . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
