As I ran this morning I happened upon a small female deer about ten feet off the road.  I think I startled her a bit as she did not move.   As I ran by, her looking at me and me at her, I was aware of her beauty and the beauty of the setting on this still and quiet June morning.  I recognized my need to just enjoy her presence and mine at this one moment.  Not an hour later God gave me this scripture;

Psalms 46:10, "Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among nations, I will be exalted in the earth".

Regardless of the circumstances, striving, is often what I do.  Trying to do things my way and in my timeline.  But God is God and I am not.  I recognize His desire for me just to enjoy His presence in the moment, regardless of the moment.  My joy is made complete in Him not in my circumstances.  Today I will seek to enjoy the moment!
