Looking at the world with the eyes of faith, we will see power in the sunrise. We will see faithfulness as flowers bloom and crops ripen. Pets and wild animals will hold our rapt attention. We will notice, as if for the first time, the beauty of children playing as well as the awesome lines of wisdom in an older person’s face. The commonplace will give way to the wondrous, all because our hearts are made new by the power of the Holy Spirit.
How ordinary life can seem at times! How quickly we can fall into a world-weary mindset! We may think that our faith just can’t get enlivened any more. But that is altogether contrary to God’s plan for us. Just as his love is never ending and always new, so does God want to reveal himself anew in each moment.
