Yesterday, I woke up, started praying, and received the words, “Feel amazed.”
I felt far from being amazed. All day.
I had ONE OF THOSE DAYS. Need I say more?
But. I’ve learned.
When I chose to see beyond the way I feel, I’m changed.
It’s taken quite a bit of life for me to realize to be amazed is as much as a choice as anything else in life.
It boils down to whether I focus on God or on a situation. Some situations take a lot of my attention and I don’t feel like focusing on anything but what’s going on.
I forced myself to take my eyes off the situation. And, though it does not make sense. I knew God was at work, doing way more than I could think or imagine. And. I was amazed.
It’s not always easy; however, when the choice to be amazed by God is made, we change despite the circumstances of the day. Choose to be amazed today. It matters–Kerrie
