Do you ever suddenly become filled with immense happiness when the world looks the way it does? Yesterday I popped outside in my rain boots and held out my arms as I soaked in the warm sunshine and let the breeze tousle my already-messy hair. Something welled up in me. Perhaps it was the realization that the world is changing yet again, or perhaps it was wonder and awe. I can never pinpoint that feeling but I love it.
It makes me feel so helpless and completely out of control. To some that may be a scary feeling, but I adore not having to be in control. It reminds me that I can’t do everything, I don’t have all of the answers, and I don’t need to. God is in charge. I don’t have to worry about a thing. I have everything that I could possibly need in Him and that is enough.
So, on days like yesterday, I can’t help but think;
“Aren’t I so glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers? A month that reminds me so much of its Creator? How lucky am I?”
