from such great heights

joshua 1:9

the Lord is everywhere, but why do i forget that?

it’s like i sub-consciously assume He’s only around when I go to church, open my bible, see a sunset. but He’s not — He is everywhere.

i drove down to Montana de Oro today to chat with Him, and realized as i was staring at His ocean that i forget about Him sometimes. ok, a LOT of the time. but why do i have to drive out to the sea to have a decent conversation with my maker? why can’t i do that at the dinner table? when i pick up my guitar? before i brush my teeth at night?

if only i treated every moment like i treat my time in Montana de Oro, things would be so much simpler.  just like He designed them to be. these daily tasks and chores i complain about would become nothing if i only remembered to remember Him, remember that He is God, remember that He is in control, and remember that I am not.

    We often get caught up in the rat race of life and forget who we are and where we are from at times. We usually get blindsided by the vanity that is the world, when the true beauty of this place is all around us all the time.
