Are There Days?

Are there days when the only one to wish you a good morning is the sun? The only one to rejoice at beauty of the new sunrise you created are the rocks and trees? Are there days when we all forget you even though you are all around? It’s been awhile since I’ve remembered you, far too long when its you who gets me through each moment. Through this one, and the next, and all those that came before and passed unnoticed. The air I breathe, you created out of nothing.
Does it break your heart when we fill up our time with the things in your hands rather than grasping for your hands instead? Asking and pleading for more and more when you know that without it, when nothing’s left, we’d finally realize you are all there ever was.
Are there days when the only ones to sing your praises are the birds? Those you gave the hearts to choose, choose to speak only in harsh tones. Rough and hard they shout at one another, destroying the beauty you filled the air with.
Are there days when you are forgotten Lord?

“Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him,
we will also live with him;
if we endure,
we will also reign with him.
If we disown him,
he will also disown us;
if we are faithless,
he will remain faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.”
2 Timothy 2:11-13

In the middle of "dead week" I remembered this. So easy to forget yet so important. Amazing what a little time with God can do...
