Pondering still water

He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. Ps. 23:2b-3a

Every day I get out of my car and see this pond. I see the seasons reflected in its waters. I see it teeming with the life and life cycles God created. We pass God’s still waters every day, and when we notice, that’s an opportunity to stop and reflect and experience restoration. Sometimes we feel like we are waiting around for God to restore when He’s right there. Sometimes our waiting has more to do with not looking up and not recognizing still water when we see it. It’s nice when it looks like this, but sometimes still water is less obvious.

God thank you for this obvious beauty. Help me to notice when you lead me beside the less obvious still water.
