What A Wonderful World

World Globe - onlineLouis Armstrong did a song titled “What A Wonderful World”.  You may look around and say “seriously”, do you not see the smog, the clutter, the news covered with crime, terrorism, reports of disasters, heart breaking stories, and gloomy predictions?
It’s a wonderful or bleak and dreary world, depending on how we choose to look at it.  This is a day the Lord has created. You and I are a child He also created and purposed to be in this day. He has plans for us to walk out; our surrendered heart and yielded spirit is what he has waited for. As we take his hand, trust in him and let him lead, it can be an exciting journey with our senses opened as never before, our eyes seeing fresh and new things, seeing old things in new ways. We will understand what previously escaped us. When we yield to his presence as we begin each day, then it shall be a day as no other, there is no hum-drum life in his presence, it is vibrant, exciting, full of life, hope, and possibilities.
It is not looking at life through rose colored glasses but looking at life through the eyes of the Lord; shifting our focus onto things that could be, looking beyond the exterior to what lies beneath, to the possibilities. What has God put inside someone else that is just waiting to be recognized, to have our encouraging words spoken causing it to bloom and take flight. What treasure is hidden under the dirt the world has thrown on top of it? A treasure just waiting for someone with eyes to see, who will release a fresh breath of life giving words across a wounded spirit allowing the hidden gems to sparkle and shine in the light of God’s love.  
This is a wonderful world; let’s choose to see through new eyes the possibilities in it. Let’s brush off the tarnish caused by sins exposure, with words of hope and life.
I see trees of green, red roses, too,
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky,
Are also on the faces of people going by.
I see friends shaking hands, sayin’, “How do you do?”
They’re really sayin’, “I love you.”
I hear babies cryin’. I watch them grow.
They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
 Songwriters: George David Weiss, George Douglas, Bob Thiele
Come, enter in, enjoy each wonderful new day.
