Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:20)
When the sun came up this morning, it was such a blessing to me. I thought, how bountiful Father God is in his goodness and love toward us. As the rays of light captured the landscape; a beautiful day was being offered to all. There was no charge for this beautiful sun that was streaming, rays of light, through the heavens. There was no strings attached. It was unencumbered with troubles. Glorious to behold! Then I realized, that my eyes which were seeing all this beauty were created by Jesus for God's glory. As I continue to embrace this moment of awe and beauty; I also realize that my intellect had been received from him.
As we prepare our hearts for praise and worship this morning, there is much much to be thankful for. The bud that produces the flower will always bring forth the fruit! "And, lo, I am with you always even unto the end of the world. Praise the Lord!
