It was good
I was very moved this week by God's Word in Genesis. He created the world in six days. Over the course of these days, on every day except two, the Bible says, "God saw that it was good." On day two nothing was mentioned, but on day six, after creating Adam and Eve it says in Gen. 1:31, "God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good." Then He rested.... I appreciate His example of daily reflection. Illustrated is His clear desire to do good and feel at peace about what He had achieved. I am especially touched by His comment in Gen. 1:31. At holidays, like most people, after spending days preparing a holiday meal and getting the table set just right with all the right linens, tableware and food I am just a little giddy. Weeks of prep and work are done. Now we sit back and enjoy. After pictures of course. :) I have such a feeling of satisfaction seeing a well executed holiday. Imagine how God must have felt looking at a beautiful and uncorrupted Earth where a week before there was nothing. Very good is a tame assessment. We serve an awesome God. His example of reflecting daily over His accomplishments has touched me deeply. Rob has a business planner (The High Performance Planner) that asks you to evaluate your day every evening. It asks questions like, what was a moment I really appreciated today, situation I handled well, did I guide and treat others well today, etc... I realize now this daily reflection is a great way to follow in our Fathers footsteps. So now at the end of my day I also reflect. It has encouraged me to live more intentionally. At the end of the day I want to be able to sit back in peace and say, it is good. I hope this encourages you. Questions, comments & insights welcome. :)
