Recognize the Lord


O nations of the world, recognize the Lord;
recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong.
Give to the 
Lord the glory he deserves!
Bring your offering and come into his courts.

Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor.
Let all the earth tremble before him.

Psalm 96:7-9

Some days I don’t have much energy. I just don’t have it. But God doesn’t require me to have energy. He asks that I recognize him. As I thought about what it means to recognize the Lord, I think it’s simply not to resort to my puny ways of helplessness. But to yield to him instead. That’s where I find strength and that’s where I get refreshed.

As I get older, I’m amazed at how simple life with God is. He understands my weakness. He only asks me to recognize him. And every day to build something beautiful with whoever I’m with. It’s not rocket science. It’s the way to a beautiful life.
