To Simply Be

Last night when I got home from a happy hour date with a friend, I saw the sun was beginning to set. I quickly threw on some tennis shoes and was out the door to take a walk with the Lord. Do you ever take a sunset stroll with God? I don't do it as often as I should but WOW! I walked around Gabriel Park and the sunset was magnificent. I was praying as I went around the loop and on the backside of my loop I sat on "my bench" and just stared at the beauty that was in front of me. It was one of those majestic moments where you feel the power of the Lord enveloping you. I sat with my knees tucked into my chest and just worshiped the Creator. I knew in that half hour as I sat there that the sunset I was gawking at was a gift. It was as if he painted the sky just for me to remind me of how deep His love is. I felt safe, I felt peace I felt adored as I sat with my Jesus. We need moments like these to not only feel alive, but to remember to slow down and become more aware of the gifts the Lord wants to bless us with. We are constantly on the go, but to take a walk and be romanced by the King of the ages is unbelievably priceless. Walk with Him, and listen to what He has to say. Even if they are sweet whispers, they can be heard when we slow down and take our head phones out. I pray my words would inspire you to seek time with Jesus and to just be in His presence. You won't regret it. 

**Disclaimer** These pictures were taken this weekend. I did not take a picture of last night's sunset as I am trying to be in the moment more and less concerned about sharing a photo.
