Take Time

Written by Julie

On April 4, 2020

Take time to smell flowers,
Take time to hear the breeze,
Take time to watch the birds
That fly across the seas.

Find joy in simple things–
Oh, let your heart rejoice!
Nature worships the One
Who did give them their voice.

The gurgle of water,
The whisper of leaves…
As we raise our voices,
Let us fall to our knees.

Dark clouds and the sunset,
The birds in the blue sky–
All of this prompts me to
Sing to the Lord Most High!

So, find joy in small things.
Oh, let your heart rejoice!
Nature worships the One
Who did give them their voice.

Hi, I'm Julie, a 17-year-old lover of books, music, and Jesus. I'm a senior in high school (Abeka Academy) and have been blogging for three years. I also co-publish a digital magazine called Priceless geared toward teen girls. My desire is to use my words to glorify my Saviour and to encourage you in your walk with God. I'd love to hear from you!

I will obey the voice calling me out, the voice of the One who wept.

I Have Seen

The heavens speak of God–do we listen, pay attention? The earth is full of God’s riches–do we seek and cherish them? The beauty of Jesus can be found in ordinary today–do we pause to see and admire?
