Hey ya’ll! I’m really sorry that there wasn’t a post yesterday! We lost our power again–this time it was out from 3:30 pm until about 10:15 pm. I’ll explain more about some of the lessons I’m learning without having electricity tomorrow. But for today’s wonders I’d like to show ya’ll the wonders of something we all take for granted: electricity.
I don’t think we realize how much we rely on our electric until we don’t have it anymore. So, without further fuss; here’s a few wonders about electric power!
1) Running Water
Since we moved in November we have been on a well. With that being said we loose water pressure when we loose power. Not that that’s a problem considering we have multiple gallons of drinking water stored in the basement. It’s just a major inconvenience to not get water from the faucet. It’s also amazing to think that there are miles and miles of pipe buried underneath our feet that brings water from the ground all the way up to our sinks and all we have to do is turn the faucet on. It’s that easy. We no longer have to carry heavy buckets of water from a well to our kitchens or bathrooms. Fresh clean water is available every time we need it. Just like that.
I think light is another thing that we take for granted on a daily basis. We flip a switch and viola! Light! The Bible says that we are the light of the world (Matthew 5:16). But do we really understand light? Light provides a way to see when it’s dark. Light dispels the shadows. It makes the scary “monsters” loose their power. In the same way the light of God’s love dispels the lies of the enemy. The Light of His Word makes the scary “monsters” of this life loose their power. Why? Because “…perfect love casts out fear…” In the Light of His Presence the scary “monsters” don’t seem as scary when we remember the love that God has for us.
What are some of the wonders that you have noticed in your life this past week? I’d love for you to share them in the comments below.
Until next time,
