Dew Drop Daisy

It’s Majestic Marvel Monday! Since Mondays can often be one of the tougher days of the week and for many, it means back to the daily grind, what better way to put a smile on your face than to marvel at His majestic wonders! I absolutely love photography! It is both a creative outlet and passion that brings me joy. So, each Monday, I will post at least one photo of God’s majestic marvels I’ve captured. See and be in awe of His creations and beauty!

Today’s pic, Dew Drop Daisy, was an unexpected shot I snapped after a quick pull over to the side of the road while driving into town. It was a cloudy, gray-kind of day, yet this capture was another example of God’s beauty that surrounds us-even when we aren’t looking. We may just have to open our eyes a little wider and be intentional about seeing the blessings that He provides us with.

“Hear this, O Job; stop and consider the wondrous works of God. -Job 37:14

Fuel Your Walk Friday

Fuel your walk with some Jesus and Joe.

I love Jesus and I love me an iced cuppa fresh cold brew halved with vanilla almond milk. What better way to combine the two and perk up the beginning of your weekend, than to “Fuel Your Walk” with some Jesus and Joe. Once a week, I will be posting a little snippet, thought, or question to ponder in relation to your walk with Christ. So grab your favorite mug, pour yourself a delicious cuppa Joe and get comfy as you let this question percolate in your mind:

A. W. Tozer said “You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him.”

Is your mind set in the right place?

Today’s shot, Trinity Tops, was snapped by my husband on a recent trip to Anchorage. Even with clouds filling the blue sky, the melted mountaintops, and lush greenery are a testament that summer in Alaska has arrived.

Bee Bum

Today’s pic, Bee Bum, is an example of beauty discovered in the weeds. Sometimes we just have to look harder than that stunning mountain up ahead. Perhaps, what’s most beautiful, is the simplicity God plants right in our own backyards.

In his book, Through the Eyes of a Lion, Levi Lusko said “The more passionate you are about setting your soul to Heaven’s time zone, the more progress you will make in your calling here on earth.”

What time zone is your internal clock set to?

Slow Down

Presence: It’s a hot topic in my world. In a previous post a few months ago, I mentioned that this theme was popping up over and over in my quiet time with God. About the same time that this word presence first made its presence, I wrestled with God regarding my addiction to caffeine. It was a tough addiction to shake. Having chronic illnesses that cause an abnormal amount of fatigue, it was easy to justify my coffee consumption. My Dr. was even on board with two cups a day. So, when I felt like God was telling me to lay off of the coffee entirely, I fought doing this. Then, my husband helped me to realize the reason. It clicked. God wanted me to slow down and stop busying myself-to be present in Him because that is what is most important. Caffeine, being a stimulant, made me feel more energized and in turn, more productive. It helped me to do more. But doing isn’t always necessarily the best or right thing. Deepening our relationship with our Savior and relying on Him for our strength, is though. The world will tell us otherwise. And unless our focal point is Him, it can be difficult not to get sucked into the doing and keeping up with the Jones’.

Busyness can be a distraction. It can divert us from what our focus really needs to be on. I was playing Martha, when I needed to be Mary. My priorities were backwards. I was trying so hard to do, that I was not really listening to how He wanted me to do. I was doing in my own strength, when what He wanted for me was to stay in His presence, depending on Him-not caffeine. With today’s technology, it’s too easy to become inundated with the portrayals on TV and social media showing us what life “should” be like. If we aren’t intentional, how quickly our eyes can wander from Him. Wandering eyes, can mean more worldly tasks added to our plates. And if we can’t slow down on our own, God will find ways to slow us down and remind us what really matters-our relationship with and dependence on Him.

He wants us to know Him on a heart level. In order to do this, we must get to know Him better. So, how do we deepen our relationship with Him? We must spend time in his presence. When we set the busyness and distractions aside, instead of our relationship with Him, and we walk with Him in each moment, seeking Him with all our hearts, minds, and souls, all else will fall into place. So, let’s slow down, look up and remember to send prayers and praises to Him throughout each day.

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:41-42

Today’s pic, Bluebell Bloom, was shot on a day where the sun shone all around, unlike our first day of the new season-a gloomy one, filled with dark, dreary clouds. I chose this photo for my Majestic Marvel pick because it signifies hope. It’s a reminder of what is just around the corner-Summertime! For even though darkness surrounds us, the Son will rise and the light will always shine again.

he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.’ -2 Samual 23:4

Peaked Serenity

It’s Majestic Marvel Monday! Since Mondays can often be one of the tougher days of the week and for many, it means back to the daily grind, what better way to put a smile on your face than to marvel at His majestic wonders!

See and be in awe of His creations and beauty!

Today’s pic, Peaked Serenity, was recently taken on a bright and blissful Saturday drive in Alaska, while on the hunt to harvest some native plants. I was able to capture several images on foot, however, as tranquil as this photo looks, the irony is that I didn’t actually stop at this serene spot. Instead, this was one of many images I shot out the passenger seat window from our moving car this past weekend. My finger was snapping away as fast as it could trying to get the perfect shot as we flew down the old highway.
