"Brightening the mundane" & White Skinnies
How can we brighten the everyday grind? Sometimes for me I feel like everyday is the exact same. Wake up, take care of little people, take care of house and husband- and repeat. There is something comforting about having a routine, but sometimes you just long for something MORE. Some excitement to shake up your day.
It's during the slow days when I'm looking for more, that I try to look to Jesus. Think about it...the God of the Universe, who created the Heavens and Earth, desires to know YOU. Not only that, he takes DELIGHT in you. He rejoices over you with singing! He even knows the number of hairs on your head. Knowing these truths can make even the longest of days feel brightened when you start to LOOK for God in the mundane.
"If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me." Jeremiah 29:13
So if today seems to drudge on, press on with open eyes and an open heart and see if you can spot all the ways the Lord shows His love for you.
