From Jesus Calling today: "As you go through this day, look for tiny treasures strategically placed along the way. I lovingly go before you and plant little pleasures to brighten your day. Look carefully for them, and pluck them one by one. When you reach the end of the day, you will have gathered a lovely bouquet. Offer it up to me with a grateful heart."
This made me realize that I sometimes approach my day in full battle gear waiting for the next attack on my happiness. What a huge difference it makes to approach the day expecting pleasures instead. It makes me feel so loved knowing that is God's intention.
This train is one example of one of those pleasures God placed on my path last week. I don't know why, but I am amazed by trains. Their massive size, the rumbling of the engine ... So this sight was a pleasure for me the other day, and I stopped to take it in.
Be on the lookout for the tiny treasures and pleasures God has placed on your path today!
