Don’t Miss the Moments

moments 1

Our lives are made up of moments.  Some of them are exciting, special times that we long for and anticipate.  Others are difficult or even devastating experiences when we know life will never be the same.  I think most of our moments make up the day-to-day routines of life that can seem mundane or just ordinary.

I’ve learned, however, that every day of our lives can actually be filled with amazing moments when God reveals Himself to us and does something in us and through us.

God created everything.  Everything we see around us, God had his hand in.  There are small little miracle moments occurring all the time all around us.  The trick is to notice them.  It can be really easy to get caught up in our routine and have our focus solely on what we are doing and miss these special moments.

Sometime we need to just slow down our lives just a little bit and take the time to notice these wonders around us.  It can be things that are so beautiful and so simple.  A kitten nursing on mom, a bird drinking from a puddle, a person holding the door for a stranger, a beautiful rainbow right after a big storm.  I think God puts these subtle things out there just to see if we are paying attention.  Not every miracle comes as a big production, we just need to train ourselves to see them.

God is amazing!  And when we live in Him, following His direction for our lives every moment of every day, we will have the abundant, joy-filled, amazing life Jesus died to give us.

Keep your eyes open and don’t miss the moments!

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
