God’s Big Little Solaces

It smells like cinnamon rolls in my house. That’s because I just pulled them out of the oven, along with a loaf of bread.

It’s a wintry day in my neck of the woods. It’s been cloudy, drizzly, freezing for a few days now, and we’re all ready to catch a glimpse of the sun.

It’s not just the weather. Sometimes life can bring us a bit lower than the “Rejoice in the Lord always” moments.

When that happens, we can consciously bring to mind that God is with us. Always. That means “ALWAYS.” Sometimes we can picture ourselves dancing in the palm of His Hand. Sometimes it means a vision of curling up in His Lap (He is our Abba, after all).

As we purposefully spend time with our Savior and Friend, we can accept His love and comfort and joy because we know that He ever commends His Love toward us.

Besides cinnamon rolls in my warm cozy home, I read ‘More Cinquains’ by Lee: https://leesbird.com/2021/02/01/more-cinquains/ , and this image cheered me.

I think it’s a beautiful picture of joyfully singing praises to our Lord.

God also cheered me with two more blog posts, both from faithful writers who consistently point to God: Vickie’s https://vicklea.com/2021/02/02/shield-of-salvation-and-gentleness/ and Brenda’s https://becominghistapestry.com/2021/02/02/this-is-love/ .

I encourage you, whatever your “feelings” might be today, to look to God, embrace the gifts He is offering you even now, and thank Him from a grateful heart.

  1. Now I definitely feel like having cinnamon rolls 😋 should probably send my husband out to get some for me 😂😂😂thanks for the privilege. Days like these do draw us closer to the Lord because they are such prominent reminders of His grace and mercy

  2. I will keep that photo of the bird as I go through my day today, remembering that the bird keeps singing. And as for cinnamon rolls, I definitely want one, but I will settle for the fudge brownies that I made yesterday. I can have a very small piece and I will savor every bite. Have a blessed day, Kathy!
