Off the top of my head

When I think about it, the most important motivation for me is to please God.  But pleasing God is not something odd or outlandish.

I reckon God is actually just as interested in pleasing me – in pleasing us!  He is in love with us after all.  I was so pleased this morning with the quality of the dawn.  As I was cycling along a seafront, the sky was a tangerine colour, and the sun was just slipping up like a soft-focus orange, more like a sunset than a beginning, really.  There were scrapes and fluffs of cloud snaking across the sky, and the sea was mellow, subservient, pooling over the sand.

There was a chill in the air this morning as well.  That’s what just brings home the beauty of the world – the glory of the creation.  It wakes you up enough to notice it.  Not cold enough to cause a cut in your throat and mucus in your lungs if you’re exercising – but nippy enough to be grateful.  For everything.

I want to please this God.  He has set out on such a large scale to please me.

About stayingfaithful

I am looking for anything that relates to life and to a fuller life. I am bored by the normal and the natural and interested in the supernatural. There must be more than this. We were put on this earth for more than a nine to five prison, as someone said a few years ago.
