Right in My Own Backyard

This tree in my backyard caught my attention yesterday.  It was the bright green tips on the ends of the very bare, dull, scraggly looking branches that drew me in at first, I think.   

Then, I started looking up and captured the images with my camera.

No kidding, this is the same tree right in my backyard.

This is what I found right in front of me.  Do you see it?

God has a way of showing up when we make room for him.

Same tree, again.  Really.  What's right in front of you?  Look again.

A prayer for today-

Dear Almighty God,

I thank you for your beautiful and amazing creation, your mercy, and your grace.  I thank you for always showing up with open arms and a strong, very real, and unquestionable presence when I make room for you in my life.  I pray you will continue to work in me, filling my heart with your love and Holy Spirit.  Let me look up to you, my rock, my counselor, my comforter, in all that I do.  Use me to make a difference in the world.

In Jesus' name I pray,
