Awed

What awes you? Our cynical society experiences more disbelief than belief. We question almost everything. Little is taken on faith. At some point it seems our whole country adopted Missouri’s motto, “Show Me.”

I and over 1400 fellow writers are about to travel to one of God’s most beautiful creations, the Black Mountain range of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Southern Appalachians. While focused on the purpose for our trip, the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writer’s Conference, how easy it would be to overlook God’s magnificent creation.

We could move from class to class and speaker to speaker engrossed in all we are learning, overwhelmed by all that’s expected of us as writers, and full of fear for our upcoming 15 MINUTE APPOINTMENTS.

Or, we could make connecting with our Lord our primary purpose for the week. We could start (or end) each day with a walk, glorying in our surroundings, praising our creator, seeking his peace, and asking him to guide our every moment at Ridgecrest.

Two things amazed Jesus. In Luke 7:1-9, he marveled at the faith of the centurion. Mark tells us in chapter 6, verse 6 he also marveled at the unbelief of the people in Nazareth. Let’s not be skeptical and filled with unbelief. Let’s allow the beauty around us to remind us that God is on his throne. He has a purpose and plan for our WIPs.

Let’s spend those four (or five) days in May, 2019, marveling at our great God with faith that his purpose for our WIPs will come to fruition. May God speak to each of us next week and leave us filled with awe.
