Seeing God in The Little Things

Sharon JaynesA Sudden Glory, Expectant Living, General Inspiration, Living Fully 273 Comments

It snowed last week.

For some of you, that is not a big deal. But for me, living in the South, it was a shining display of glory all around.

I breathed in the majesty of creation; breathed out the gratitude of grace.

Thinking of the power of the gospel to cleanse.

Pondering of the grandness of it all.

Musing in the smallest of it all.


A simple snowflake.

A lacy crocheted masterpiece fashioned with the skein of ice by the hand of God.

A simple soul.

A fearfully and wonderfully made girl crafted by the fingertips of the Creator. (That would be you.)


Seeing God in the big.

Seeing God in the small.

Opening eyes to the glory all around.


He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’ Job 37:6 NIV


“Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” Psalm 51:7 NIV


“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”  Isaiah 1:18 NIV


“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 51:10-11 NIV


Stoop down.

Look up.

Lean in.

Turn aside.

“When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him…” Exodus 3:4 ESV

Could it be that we are so busy bustling about that we don’t turn aside to listen? To notice? To see?

Could it be that we don’t slow down enough to investigate as a sleuthing child expecting Him to speak through what He has made?

Glory moments abound when we tune into God’s frequency and listen for the timbre of His voice. As Elizabeth Barrett Browning said, “Earth is crammed with heaven and every common bush afire with God. But only he who sees, takes off his shoes.

Will you sit with me like the blind beggar by the road, with face upturned?  “Lord, I want to see.”

If  you’ll join me, leave a comment and say, “Lord, I want to see.”

Time for a give-away. I am going to randomly pick one person from today’s comments and send a free copy of A Sudden Glory: God’s Lavish Response to Your Ache for Something More.

    1. Lord, I want to see You! Thanks you Sharon for a reminder to look for God in the little things of my day. Since we are on about our 10th winter storm here in Pennsylvania, snow has not been particularly something I have been looking to see God in. It has become more of a nuisance but God sent it and wants me to learn little things each day through it.

    2. Yes Lord I want to see!!!!!!. Thank you for making the snow glorious I live in the Midwest, and we have seen much snow. It is so true snow is beautiful, peaceful and pure.

    3. Lord, I want to see too!!! Every time it snows, [which has been a lot this winter], I like to go out in the middle of the night, into the purest of white snows, without spot, or blemish and listen to the special silence, shovel the drive, and ponder how Jesus sacrifice on the cross makes me whiter that what my eyes behold in the snow ! When I get to the bottom of the snow, there is a crusty layer, when I toss that layer on top of the fresh fallen snow, the purity is gone. So, too another reminder of the need for the continual confession of sin.
      Thank you for your photos too!

    4. You can see him in actions, and many ways shows that He is
      Living God, that loves cares and is faithful in many ways in
      our life. With all your strength love him and serve him as
      Lord and Master,

  1. It’s the moments, the tiny moments that make me stop in my tracks. Then it is good to know that my creator also created everything else, and I can sing with a thankful heart ‘O Lord my God, when I in awestruck wonder consider all the works thy hands have made’

  2. Thank you for the reminder to stop and see. As it snowed all I could think of was “God You are amazing!” But as I return to the hustle and bustle of daily life I forget how amazing He is and begin to grumble again. I long to see God in every moment, to hear Him in every word. It is a battle that is fought minute to minute..ignoring the voice of the enemy. I thank God for His power and victory. Lord I want to see!

  3. Lord, I want to see.

    Thank you, Sharon. This is just what I needed. Sometimes being busy doing big things makes us miss the blessings in the little things. This is a good reminder to appreciate every thing around us — big or small. God bless you.

  4. Apply your heart to instruction, and your ears to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12. Today before reading your message for the day, I asked the Lord to allow His Word to penetrate my heart. It has been stuck in my head and hasn’t made it to my heart yet. I pray that I will able to do that with the help of the Holy Spirit, to remove the hardness of my heart so I may let Jesus in to occupy every part of it, every area, every darkened space that has been there for so many, many years. My prayer today is Listen.

  5. Living on Michigan, where we have lots of the white stuff, & more currently falling, it was refreshing to read this today. A great reminder to slow down & listen. God is in everything, even the snow flakes!

  6. Lord I want to see your loving healing hands on my body , healing it from sickness and what lies ahead for me in the near future. I see your majestic beauty daily in my surroundings and praise you for every second I breath. You are a mighty God in which I trust!

  7. I just journaled this morning about really abiding in His presece and peace, I realize that As I do that I can see very clearly!!Praise God He is moving,

  8. Love that piece. I wrote a tract on the fact that sheep appear white against the fields until it snows m then they are a dirty grey! So we do not see our sins. Love your blogs. From wales, UK. Bore da

  9. I ” need something more” and your post was exactly what I needed to hear! Gods glory is all around and I need to slow down and notice and appreciate it more!!! Ty for your beautiful words of wisdom!

  10. Lord, I want to see you& your hand at work today & every day. Even when I’m mired down in the mundane, lift my eyes to see Your glory. Thank you for being my Shepherd who goes before me, and who hems me in with Your goodness and mercy. Praise and Amen.

  11. It is on purpose that we need to stop and listen to God’s whisper.
    It is on purpose that we make time to read God’s Word.
    It is on purpose we take notice of God’s glory in nature and around us.
    All day, every day, in every instance, God’s glory abounds and surrounds us with His love and handiwork.

    We need to stop, look, listen and be grateful!

  12. I am so enjoying your emails since I first met you at Sandy Cove Retreat last year, 2013.

    I hope I have the pleasure to be in your company again in the future.

    Your story is amazing and you are a testament to God’s work-in-progress!

    God Bless,

    Denise Lake

  13. “Lord, I want to see!” Good morning Sharon! Loved looking at the snow through the eyes of our Creator! I am in Rhode Island and snow is a winter expectation. Each morning I look out and in my heart, I hear the Lord saying, I will purify the earth…I will wash away the sins of the world. Come to me…I long to cleanse the hearts and souls, minds and bodies of those who believe in me. Even though the snow may be more commonplace here, it is always a calling for cleansing and renewal of the longing of the Holy Spirit to live in us, to see through the eyes of God! God bless!

  14. Thank u Sharon. I enjoyed the pics tho I see it often here in northern Michigan. And I understand taking the time to just be in aweof God’s pallet as I call our beautiful world. I take my dog for walks on veg basis and love to see what I can find. Deer crossing the road looking for food. Red cardinals fluttering from thr to bush. The chirping of birds in the woods.the Gurggle of the stream over snow covered rocks. So calming…soothing. I’m always in awe of all He created and put here simply for our pleasure!! When I’m stressed, overwhelmed, frustrated, seeking God for that inner peace…that’s where I usually find Him. Isn’t He awesome?!?

  15. Lord, I want to see………..Love this devotion,,,,,I try to see God in all those little beauties all around us,,,,almost never miss a sunset, or sunrise,,,,,,so many people who never look, mush less see…..

  16. Your perspective of snow lightens up it’s heaviness. This refreshes me as school is cancelled yet again, this winter.
    Thank you for the renewal:)

  17. I enjoy the location of our school in Tbilisi, Georgia (Republic of), because we often see beautiful sunrises on the way to school, and because it is nestled in the hillside where shepherds herd their flocks (or cows) and a small white cross is visible on the hilltop looking out my classroom window. All of these are small reminders on hectic days of God’s goodness and care for me.

  18. Oops…sent before done…I sincerely hope others can use this idea to find God in this stress filled world even if they live in cities. There is always a place to find the beauty of nature and I truly believe that’s a place we can always find Him !! God bless and keep u all?

  19. Lord I want to see your beauty as I look around. Thank you lord the for snow in the Midwest. Love it and every time it snows I think of your glory. Please never let me forget that! Lord I
    Want to see!

  20. Thank you for the reminder to stop in the midst of my busy life. He is watching and waiting for me to respond to all of His beauty. I plan to listen more and be quiet and still for His whisper.

  21. Good Morning Sharon & thank You for today’s writing & thank you that You too see that the miracle is in the small things that GOD reveals to us daily..May Your day be full of the richest blessings that GOD holds in store for You in the everyday miracles of this life, In Christ’s love Miss Rusty

  22. I live in west Michigan, we have had so much snow this season, and yesterday we received another 6-7 inches. We are all saying enough all ready, I have friends who are crying due to the snow. Then I read your post and am reminded how wonderful our God is, he knows what we need when we need it and it does water the ground and it truly is beautiful (when you don’t have to shovel or drive in it). Thanks again for the reminder to be thankful in all things.

    Have a blessed day,
    Barb Yost

  23. Love to read your daily devotions. I too live in the south and loved seeing the snow and the beauty God gave us last week to slow us down and enjoy time together as a family. I would love to win your book! Happy Tuesday! Thanks for sharing your heart in devotion with us!

  24. Lord I want too see, open up my eye of understanding that I may see the hope of your calling. Thank you Sharon for always being a beautiful vessel used by God. Blessings!

  25. Lord, I want to see! Oh, how I long to see. From the depths of my soul, I desire to see! I want to see You! I want to see Your face! I want to know what You are doing around me so that I can come alongside of You and be Your co-laborer in Your harvest… I want to see!!!

  26. We live near the Ohio/Michigan line in Temperance, MI….and have record snowfall this winter so the beauty has gone on….&on….&on. Just wrote in my journal this morning as I read Romans 4: Oh what JOY for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight – I’m covered with Jesus’ robe of righteousness – washed whiter than snow. YES! What JOY for those whose rcord the Lord has cleared of sin!!!!! Amazing grace. Thank you ABBA FATHER for choosing lil ol me.

  27. The uniqueness of finger prints, no one in the entire world has the same finger prints and yet, He knows them all by name. Though, He changes not, He creates, He draws a new and unique picture every day, never the same one. How majestic is our God, He is full of wonder n splendor, and there’s no end to Him. Thank you, God, for your goodness and mercy, and for all the little things that have your signature.

  28. Lord, I want to see and to hear. 50.3 inches of snow are all around my house. Thank you for the reminder that I am made white as snow.

  29. Good morning, I’m from the south actually Madison, Ga and unexpectly we received lots of ice mixture and was stuck at home for two days. It’s true we all have hectic schedules and it’s hard to have alone time with god so we can hear his voice. This years resolution for myself was to “be still” and that is so hard for me. I have a catering and cleaning business. I’m working all the time but I have ask God for clarity this year for my business. I want my catering business to go the next level and I’m unsure of how that’s going to happen. So when I was stuck at home I began to search for food trucks re- write a new menu and praise him for the “unseen things”. I know when we pray we are asking god to be in the situation that were currently in and help us get through what ever struggles were going through; I like to call that the “IN BETWEEN STAGES” we all have them but what’s so powerful is that in the in between stages; while we’re waiting; determines the outcome! Even though I can’t see my food truck or where the monies will come in for it ( those are the unseen things” so I praise god for the unseen and thank him that my food trucks on the way and the money for it! The more I just be still and thank him; the mountain that seemed so BIG IN FRONT OF US doesn’t look that big after all; it looks POSSIBLE! I have been having fear and anxiety about all this and then it’s starts to snow and ice. So I used my time to PRAISE HIM for the unseen things and to study his word and remember his promises! There is a song by Clint Brown called ” Fall like Rain” even though we had a mixture of sleet, snow and ice; I see god raining blessings. At least that’s how I saw it; god always wants to rain blessings on us but how often do we stop to see them. Just thought I share! Have a bless day! And smile with me my Food Truck is on its way:)

    1. I’m from Houston where it takes little more than a chance of freezing rain to shut down the city–which happened twice in one week earlier this month. Most people got a day off from school/work. Me, I’m between jobs and have had it so hammered into me that “looking for work is more than a full-time job” that I spent most of the time surfing employment ads. Did I miss a chance to see God at work??

  30. Bless you for taking my eyes and focus off of the ugliness of mounds and piles of dirty snow and causing me to see the brand new drifts that fell early this morning. I live in Philly and it just keeps snowing! But your photos caused me to see things with fresh perspective this morning and to see the artwork that our majestic Lord created for our eyes to see this morning. He has been very busy here trying to get our attention with lots of fresh WHITE snow. The colors popped out in your photos because the snow is SO WHITE! That is how we are when we confess our sins to our Heavenly Father. Thanks for causing me to see the blessings of the fresh snow this morning!

  31. Lord thank you for all the little things you have shown me throughout my struggle. Please continue to help me see the small things and to hear your voice.

  32. Lord I want to see. Thank you for the beauty of your creation. Let me stop in the hustle and bussel of my life to appreciate the blessings you bestow on me daily.

  33. Yes, I’ve been reminded in the last few months that my God cares about the small and big things in my life. Truly, He will tell me a little thing like where I put my glasses….to a bigger issue like reminding me of His love for me, and encouragement to keep moving forward, when I want to be weary.

  34. Lord I want to see!
    Thank you Sharon for the reminder of all the beauty our God has created. There is so much beauty all around us but we attend to grumble at the snow faliing and the rain (sometimes freezing) but the truth of the matter… we just need take a moment and reflect on the beauty of it and how fortunate we are to be able to see what God has created. Yesterday, when the rain turned into ice hanging on the branches and covering the driveway, the small little drops that froze at the tips of each fortunate leaf not covered by the snow fall from days before, it was truly a beautiiful sight. However, I was most concerned about the thought of getting to work, and worrying how the traffic may be. Did I even think to stop for just a moment and thank God for what he has done or just pray and give all my worries to Him? No, I didn’t! Instead I was grumpy and ungrateful. Oh, how I need these simple reminders. Thank you.

  35. I wait for your emails and each time one wonderful sentence or a script will fill my heart. I pray for those you cannot see the wonder of God’s love and his creation. Each drop of snow is different as each person in the world and if we all had the faith to believe what a wonderful world this would be. I praise God for your words of caring and simple love. It really is that simple. Our God is love.

  36. Lord, I want to see…My life is so mixed up right now. Yes, I’m blessed, but yet on the other hand I’m so confused. I want to see where the Lord is leading me. My oldest son told me he’s done with me and it has turned my world upside down. I just want to cry all the time and question. I’m loosing out on life with my precious grandboys as well. I know he was brought up in a loving Christian home. I know there are jealousy issues between his family and my youngest son and his little girl. We have tried to assure them that there is not a need for that because we love them all. Granted his wife and I do not see eye to eye on everything, but I have apologized time and time again for everything I could have possible done wrong. My Mom keeps telling me God has a plan. I try to see everything, but I don’t see how a boy can stop loving his momma after 33 years.
    All I know to do is keep lifting his heart to God. Hopefully before it’s too late his heart will soften.

  37. Lord I want to see your blessings in everything, just like on Sunday when waking up to another 6 inches of snow in the North East instead of grumbling I said “Thank you Lord I am truly blessed, who would think three little words could get a 13 year old and a 24 year old out of bed and helping to shovel? Church is on!”

    1. Lord, I want to see. Snow has been abundant around us but still when I see the sparkles in the snow I see Our Creator giving us a glimpse of what it must be like to be in Heaven. I love to look up and down and notice the beauty of His world and am grateful to have those moments.

    2. Lord, I lean in, but I don’t wait,
      I listen, but I don’t hear,
      I look, but I don’t see,
      I wait, but I’m not patient.
      God, I want to be more like you!

  38. Lord, I want to see!!!
    Help me to see Your beauty in all creation, from the smallest snowflake to the tallest mountain……in every face I encounter and every road I travel.

  39. Lord i what to see! I ask for God to let me see His wisdom in the little things but lean on Him for everything! He is good and faithful.
    I praise God for your morning emails to brighten my day! Many times it hits the spot for me that very day. God knows our needs and He is using your ministry to answer prayers and help us realize how might a God we serve.
    Thank you Sharon.


  40. I close my eyes. I lift my face. And immediately I hear the song “open the eyes of my heart Lord, open the eyes of my heart. I want to see you. I want to see you.” I open my eyes again, and see what has been there. But now, as God’s glory.

  41. Everyone, including myself, are complaining
    about how much snow we have had and that we can’t wait for spring. Thanks for opening my eyes to God’s beauty and blessing.
    “Lord I want to see”

  42. I wish I had received this message yesterday, I was feeling some kind of way and now I feel bad about how I was feeling. I have been fasting for the past couple of weeks and although my body is no longer able to reproduce, I still go through the motions as if I did. With that being said I would like to ask to be added to your prayer list not because of my initial statement, but because of being torn and conflicted with emotions and feelings that I know what to do but continue to struggle with “doing.”

    Regarding your message today, when it snows here (I’m in Kentucky) it very beautiful to see but also very dangerous, which makes your message so timely especially for me today. The beauty that God shows us on a regular basis is absolutely amazing, we have a tendancy to loose sight of it because of the dangers and or the distrations that are there to try and prevent us from seeing God’s glory, love and magnificance. Thank you for pointing it out to us.


  43. Today is my 30th wedding anniversary…3 days ago a friend called to say that we needed to see the moon coming up. We live where trees were blocking our view, so hopped into the pickup (We had been sick with the flu, so were not a pretty sight) and headed out of town to find the glorious orange ball in the East rising through the dust of Kansas. I think God would love for us to be just as anxious to seek all of His gifts…
    Lord, help my husband and I to continue to see for the next 30 years.

    1. Post
  44. Last night I dreamt of this same subject, I need to look at things through the eyes of Jesus, not my own, to stop and see what He sees, and how He sees it. Including myself. Thank you Sharon, and God bless you abundantly for all you write.

  45. Lord , I want to see…the snow brings water for farmers to grow crops in Spring. It is great exercise for shoveling and a chance to do something with my 18 yr old daughter. Everyday is a blessing, we need to see the beautiful opportunities.

  46. Lord, I lean in, but I don’t wait.
    I listen, but I don’t hear.
    I look, but I don’t see.
    I wait, but I’m not patient.
    Help me oh God to be more like you!

  47. I retired recently and what has surprised me the most was what I can see now that I don’t have to have everything done on the weekends. I love being able to take the time to see what he has in store for me. God is good.

  48. Oh Lord, I definitely want to see!!! The beauty that you send us each and every day. Let me be a Mary that stops to listen and not be a busy Martha that means well but never stops her hectic life to stop and just listen. How wonderful you are!!! You have every little tiny thing planned for our good. I love you with all my heart. Thanks Sharon for being so obedient to his word to help others take a moment and appreciate the beauty of the Lord.

  49. Lord, I want to see! Doing a Bible study right now about being gripped by the greatness of God. I pray so hard to have a hunger for Him and His word. And then for that hunger to be satisfied by Him. Waiting and looking!

  50. The closer I am the more super-sensitive He has made me to Him, I find Him in some of the most beautiful and exquisite places as well as in the mundane. I have started a picture collection on my desk to take me back to those places where He has especially showed up and made His presence known to me. I look for Him in all places and find that I find him more and more often. Loved this devotion!

  51. I began my day with this concept today posting Psalms 51:10 and praying for God to cleanse MY heart . Your devotional was like a breathe of fresh air ..confirming that God is willing and able as soon as we ask we receive . Praising God today and always..<3

  52. The winds we have had here in Britiain together with the flloods is a real reminder of the majesty of God. He will not not be controlled nor contained. I see Him in the gentle sunset, the softest breeze. Praise our God.

  53. Lord, help me see You in all around me. I miss Him so often in my busy schedule and it’s so easy to let stuff distract me. Open my eyes Lord, I want to see Jesus. To reach out and touch Him and say that I love Him. Focus my heart on you over all the busy day and reveal your love to me. Thank you God and thank you Sharon. Seeing your pictures of snow amidst things that don’t normally get snow is beautiful.

  54. Lord I want to see what this season in my life holds. Even though this might sound weird I am going to post it anyway because someone may need to be encouraged. Several things have happened to me since December. I lost my job and still have not found a new one, I attened 3 funerals, my husbands car was vandalized, and we recently found out my husband has liver cancer. In the mist of all things happening I have so much peace and joy. I told my husband I am the happiest I have ever been. I know God has a plan and a purpose for all this and can’t wait to see what the outcome will be. It is all for His glory!!!! Keep believing and trusting God, He is for us not againt us 🙂

  55. After a hectic morning (no electricity which meant no coffee, couldn’t get the garage door opened, nearly had two wrecks on the way to work), I was reminded to stop, look up and see the beautiful morning God had given me today! I didn’t have a wreck, I have coffee at work, the electricity will come back on but the most important thing is that my Savior is the answer to all of the chaos and He loves me…I want to see!!!!

  56. I live in the north but I never cease to enjoy the seasons. I love the snow as it makes its way to the earth knowing how unique each and every snow flake is that falls to the ground.
    When it first falls and accumulates it is so perfectly white. Then life gets involve and it gets all dirty and yucky. It is like us . We make life sometimes interfere with the life God has given us and then we get yucky and have to go to Jesus and get clean again.

  57. Lord I want to see you more. Lord I want to hear you better. Lord I want to feel your promptings stronger. I need you. I am nothing without you. Guide me to fulfill your plan for my life!

  58. Lord I want to see! Thank You for reminding me how beautiful the snow is. I live in the Midwest and we haven’t had this much snow in three decades.
    I love your analogy of our sins will be whiter than snow. Yes, Lord I want to see you in the little things.

  59. Monday morning on my way to work, feeling so stressed that I could explode at any second, I was fortunate enough to see the sunrise as a little note from God telling me that He is still at work in my life.

  60. This message really spoke to me today. When the snow came I thanked God for slowing me down and enjoying my family. Lord I want to see you!!!

  61. Lord I want to see. In the still small voice, in the might thunder – You are there. Thank you for your Son, your tender mercies that are new each and every morning. We love You, we adore You and we bow our knees before You.

  62. I like seeing the snow fall being reminded that God has made each snow flake uniquely just as He has made us. I wrote before and it is not shone so I don’t know what I did wrong. Striving to have be more like Jesus.

  63. What a wonderful reminder, amidst our complaints about so much snow in the Northeast, to see God in the majesty, wonder and purity around us. Thank you!

  64. Lord I Want to See! Lord open my eyes so I can see all that you would have me to see. I don’t want to miss anything. Also Lord help me to see myself and others as you see us. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

  65. Lord, I want to see today! I’m craving your glory today. I have had my fill of discouragement and would love a reminder of your infinite amazing work! I miss you!

  66. Lord open My eyes to see everything that you have given us…Remind me to stop and smell the roses and take in all the beauty around me… to be reminded of the little things.

    wanted to say that the pictures are amazing as well as the message.
    thanks for sharing your thoughts.
    love to read your messages…

  67. Hi Sharon –
    I see that I’ve taken where I live for granted. In Alaska, we have snow for 6 months out of the year, sometimes longer. But it truly is beautiful.
    I am guilty of being too busy to notice God’s beauty in the small things. Thanks for the reminder!

  68. Lord, I want to see you more. Thank you, Sharon. You put into such descriptive words the beauty that makes my heart sing when I look at God’s creation. I want to be one of those that turns aside to see and takes off her shoes.

  69. After losing my husband of 30 years last summer, I have learned that my chair time results in just what you wrote about today Sharon. I am not sure how it is possible to hurt so bad and be so wonderfully cared for and thankful at the same time.
    I miss living in the south and the occassional snow or ice storm, thanks for sharing your pics with us

  70. Lord keep our eyes open for your wonder! Beautiful reminder in the pictures. Here in Canada we see lots of snow. It is awesome to see his handiwork. Every snowflake – reminder to keep our eyes open to his glory. God patiently made each snowflake unique – as each one of us. Lord help us to see how unique we are to you and make the most of the day – One of a kind!

  71. Lord I want to see!!
    What an awesome reminder – God is everywhere and in everything we do, we just have to take the time to see.
    Love it!!

  72. “”Lord, I want to see”. Thank you Sharon for today’s devotional and all of the others ones you post. Everyday I sit by my window and thank the Lord for the rain, sun and yes the snow as well. So I am aware of all the little things and big things that the Lord has made.

  73. Lord, I want to see. I want to see the masterpieces of your hand at work. I want to see the beauty of sunsets and sunrises. I want to see the mountains so majestic as they remind me of You – my rock. I want to see the miracle of a newborn baby as their mother and father sees them for the first time with such a look of love in their eyes. I want to see the vibrant colors of the flowers as they come forth in spring with all their glory. I want to see a changed life because they met the God of love, mercy and grace. Yes, Lord, I want to see this and oh so much more. I want to see with eyes of love; eyes that are like yours, Lord. Eyes that see what others cannot because they don’t look through your eyes of love. I want to see, Lord.

  74. Even though I’m getting tired of snow, I see God’s beauty in the newly falling snow on the trees and bushes. It is breathtaking!! It reminds me that He is the One in controll! All I can do is praise Him!!!
    Thank you, Sharon for reminding us to look for His glory in all things!

  75. “Lord I Want to See”…

    Yes I want to see and hear …. Tune in to his voice ..! know him more intimately with each day that passes ..


    The snow was absolutely beautiful it made my heart ache for cold weather….. we are experiencing just the opposite .. unusually warm weather which is not my favorite .. it’s been difficult to think that this will only lead to the warmer temps of summer with no cool reprieve of winter or spring this year .. Please pray we at least get some much needed rain as we face a warm drought ridden season.

    Thank You for a Beautiful Post ..

  76. Thank you for the reminder….I need to slow down and know He is God. He certainly blesses me with many reminders each and every day! 🙂

  77. Lord, I want to see YOU and to get “out of me”! I want to feel Your breath and see Your love letter in all of Your spender and glory in the day to day things that I tend to overlook and Sharon, please send me your book (hey, it rhymed…)

  78. Praise God for the quiet snowbound days in which we slow down to see his glory. I bask in his presence as he makes me to sit down and gaze out the window and drink in the sight of each snowflake and icecicle droplet that falls. The sweet presence of the wintering hummingbirds, bush-tits and downie woodpeckers at the feeder remind me that Abba Father cares for them and much much more for me, so I bow down and worship him.

  79. Lord I want to see, show me thy glory!!!!

    Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3

  80. “Lord, I want to see!”
    Last week, we lost our dear friend to liver cancer. Your post touched my heart because last spring while he was getting treatment, he went to visit his mama 1 last time. He had finally learned to stop and smell the roses. He went outside and started taking photos of all the flowers and blooms around his mom’s house.
    This man had lead a hard life, but cancer changed him and he learned to slow down and found the voice of God. It was a blessing and helped us remember in the midst of of our crazy life we need to slow down.
    Thank you for this post.
    Blessings – Tammie

  81. Dear Father, I want to see. I know Your wonders and I am so thankful for the little things; like seeing the hawks fly over, the beautiful flowers. I live in California and thank You Father there is no snow here. I love and trust You and I want to see more. Open my heart, eyes and my mind to Your beautiful ways, I want to see.

    Sharon, thank you for this beautiful message.

  82. Lord, I want to See. As a transportation worker in Southwestern Virginia, I have never looked at snow as God, but after reading today’s post, I will most certainly be looking at it from a whole new light. Thank You, Sharon!!!

  83. Thank you for the reminder to “be still and know that I am God.”
    Loved the snow pictures with Bible verses throughout the devotion.

  84. Please Lord, I want to see! I really and truly want to see. I know when I have eyes that see and ears that hear, I will know a deep and abiding joy. I want that with all my heart.

  85. Lord I want to see, hear , not be anxious, scared, frustrasted, about the struggles I am going through waiting on the answers to my prayers. I feel like nothing is going right or works in my favor. Help Me Lord.

  86. “Lord, I want to see.” I am very grateful that my BFF introduced me to this site. I have ordered and am currently reading 3 of your books and cannot get enough!

  87. I praise God daily for the things most people don’t see or look for in people and nature. Right now I live in isolation (no car) but in the foothills of the Rockies of Western Montana. I have the glorious privilege of seeing God’s glory, creative genius, and artistic and engineering feats! From wildlife (a black bear and her cub, eagles, pheasant) to spectacular sunrises and sunsets. I thank God for sharing with me and I lift my voice in song and praise to my Father who created the world, suspends the planets and stars in space at the right angle, keeps all the molecules and atoms together from our bodies to earth. I am amazed at what He reveals! So thankful He chose me and loves me so much. Thank you, Sharon for letting me share what God shares with me!

  88. Lord, I want to see! thank you for the reminder to stop and enjoy what God has created, including snow and ice! I live in South Carolina, so my city pretty much is paralyzed while the folks up north and in the midwest kind of chuckle to themselves! 10 inches, they say, try 8 feet or more! I know some places have been snowbound for more than a month, so we should be thankful! We should be thankful for everything, anyway, regardless. I just love your devotionals and books! Make sure you get the right Carol, I saw a lot of Carol’s,some with an E and many without!

  89. Yes Lord I want to see! I want to see the big and the small. I want to see your will for me. I look forward to every new day and pray I may never stop looking for what you have in store for me.

  90. “Lord, I want to see.” Sharon – Thanks so much for the wonderful reminder of how God supplies so many things for our enjoyment and wants us to take the time to “see”. I know I need to be better at that.

  91. Lord, I want to see MORE!!! On my way to work every morning, I take the road less traveled just to have a more quiet ride. I am then able to see the last of the evening stars as the sun begins to rise, the birds flying, the beautiful fog blanketing the farmland, the earth waking up and I marvel and God’s amazing hand in his creation of the universe! When we look for the small things, they add up and we can see and feel God everywhere. When I see the little things, I feel these “kisses” from God and I am sustained!

  92. Thank you so much Sharon for your devotional, and how true it is, all we have to do is just take a few minutes out of the day and go out side and see all around us at all of the beautiful things that our Lord has given us. The sky so blue and the fluffy white clouds, the trees so green,and the dirt, that smells so rich, and the birds of all kinds, God is so great, we have so much to be thankful for. I love my Lord.

  93. I think snow is one of God’s most beautiful creations. I especially love to see the sun shine on it and make it look like diamonds glistening. We have had a lot of snow this year in Indiana and I have loved every bit of it.

  94. When the wind is howling outside….when the rains are beating so hard on my windows…. when my soul reflects the weather outside…. how precious the reminder that new growth, new blessings, new beginnings are possible; and not only for myself, but for all those who He loves…

  95. I love to see God but my life has been too busy to notice Him. Thank you so very much for the reminder that He is all around me and all I need to do is take a moment to see. I love to see God.

  96. Thank You Sharon for this Beautiful look at the snow last week with Bible Verses to go along with them. My life gets so hectic at times I lose focus on the One who matters most.Lord I want to see you in All thins in my Life! I enjoy your devotions so much! I am reading your devotion book Praying for your Husband from Head to Toe, it has shown me how to lift my husband up and not put him down. I am a Truly Blessed Woman to have him in my life!

  97. “Lord, I want to see.” Lord please help me to BE STILL (Psalm 46:10)
    Let us be silent that we may hear the Whisper of GOD.

  98. “Lord, I want to see.” Lord please help me to BE STILL (Psalm 46:10)
    Let us be silent that we may hear the Whisper of GOD.

  99. Lord, I want to see!!! Yes my life is crazy and busy being a single mom of 2
    very busy girls!! Please help all of us to SLOW DOWN and see all the wonders of your creation, and to take the time to listen for your voice and direction for our lives!!
    To God be all the glory!!
    Thank you for the reminder that we need to take time to do this.

  100. God’s rays of sunshine in the midst of a dark day! =)

    Revelation 22:4-5 (KJV)
