I looked at the mountain as I took April out this morning and didn’t see the sun coming up as I usually do. We headed back in and I heard God say take a picture, but there’s nothing there I thought. I went ahead and took the picture and was amazed to see the sun. I couldn’t see it with my natural eyes, but it was there and so beautiful. God whispered I am working in the unseen. That renewed my spirit like you can’t even believe and put a huge smile on my face. Talking about a praise shout, I wanted to tell everyone what He’d shown me all day!
I tried to focus in on the sun with my phone, but the more I focused the more it seemed to disappear into the sky. I’d take another picture and it was still there, shining with such a beautiful glow. We focus on our problems like I was trying to focus on the sun. Everything else becomes a blur and we miss the bigger picture. We become discouraged and forget our Father sees it all and is always working behind the scenes on our behalf. Just as I couldn’t see the sun, we can’t always see Him in the midst of a storm. However, He’s there and still in control.
I was so grateful for the pictures and the Word my Poppa gave me this morning, I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. I pray you are as encouraged as I was. Whatever you are going through or praying for, God hears you. Just because you can’t see it yet, doesn’t mean He’s not working on your behalf. He has a plan and it’s in His timing, it’s also so much better than we could have planned for ourselves! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
2 Corinthians 4:17-18, “17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
