I love technology! So, when I am able to get a new phone or computer I am so excited! I turn on my new technical joy and am excited and amazed! And then when something breaks or it doesn't go the way I want, the amazement and joy slides away! Before I know it, I am waving my fists and cursing the very gift that only moments earlier gave me such joy! How quickly I become un-amazed!
Yesterday, I heard the word "amazed" used in conjunction to our relationship with GOD! After all, it doesn't get more amazing! It did leave me wondering if I treat my amazement in the LORD similar to when I get a new computer? And I may! And I need to change it!
I clearly have seen times where I thought something was devastatingly impossible, still, a way was made. Yep, GOD! I was amazed!
Yet, how soon I forget! A tough situation falls in front of me and how quickly my amazement leaves. And even in my spoil - the LORD holds me, prods me along only once again to be amazed!
LORD, forgive me that I lose the wonder and amazement of YOU too quickly. Forgive me that I allow what surrounds me in the physical to lower my expectations of YOU. YOU tell us that if we have a tiny bit of faith in YOU, YOU WILL move mountains for us- I need to hold onto that. FATHER, instill in me that amazement at and in YOU at every moment and every step. Clear my eyes of the cannots and the impossibles and replace them with faith, hope, love and continuous amazement at who my FATHER is! Amen ❤️
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
