That's what my devotional was about this morning. I thought about that on my way to work. At first, I was amazed by negative things. I decided to walk to the subway station today instead of waiting for the bus, even though it was cold, rainy, and dreary. And, I was amazed by the amount of trash on the ground. I was amazed at how many cars ran a red light. I was amazed by the forlorn faces of people waiting at other bus stops along the way.
But then I started to look for God's hand. I was amazed by the buds on the trees and the daffodil sprouts and tulip leaves pushing up through the ground. In spite of all the garbage we produce and the damage we do to the Earth, God's amazing creation manages to keep going and bring forth new life.
I was amazed by the number of people who were walking along with me. It made me happy to see others saving gas and getting exercise. And, I was amazed that even though I don't take very good care of my body these days, I've been blessed with legs and muscles that work properly.
At work, I was amazed at the number of things I was able to accomplish despite being tired. I was amazed by how much fun my co-workers and employees are. Best of all, I was amazed to put my hand on my friend's belly and feel her two babies kicking away!
And, when I got home tonight, I was amazed by how much happiness I get from having a tiny boy run across the room, throw his arms around my neck, and tell me how much he missed me.
What amazed you today?
