Every morning as I drive my kids to school, we pass a large open field amidst the Hill Country oaks and cedar trees. I’ve always had a fascination with this area taking notice of when the grass is green or when it is brown or wondering how the open field came to be in the first place. Depending on the direction you are driving, it comes to be after a turn or a slight curve. But day in and day out, there it is.
The past few weeks, I’ve noticed a flock of turkeys in the field searching for breakfast on the early drive to school. As silly as it seems, I could have missed the turkeys and the pretty field and noticing the change of seasons. And quite honestly, sometimes I do. But those silly turkeys in the pretty open field remind me, day in and day out, that God provides. If He provides breakfast for them, He will provide so much more for me. And He has. In the grind of life, sometimes we miss the turkeys. We forget to stop. To look up. To notice what is around us. God is with us.
As we “seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Today with whatever your day holds, pause. Look up. And seek the kingdom of God.
