“For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord; I sing for joy at the work of your hands”
Years ago I was part of a summer mission team to France. We did some sightseeing while there, and another team member commented on my excitement and awe. She had been there before and had lost some of her wonder. My excitement helped her recapture it.
That comment impacted me. My daily focus may be on what is hurting or not hurting, what I need to do and whether I will be able to do it, and what everyone else is doing that I wish I could be doing. To capture something means to seize it, perhaps using force. I may need to force myself to look for the wonder that God has put in my path - through creation, people, and His Presence - instead of always looking at the problems and potential sources of discontentment in my life.
