The Simple/Complex Blessings By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

02 Jan


I woke up this morning and I had a thought

I looked and the mirror and said to myself you know what we ought…

And I started to think about what seems to be such a simple thing

But if you look closer you will see the depth in the blessings that it brings

I thought about how blessed we are to have this gift that other people are dying to get

I am not talking about money, I am not talking about cars

But I am talking about one of the most missed and biggest blessings underneath the stars

When the sky starts to fall

I often just sit

I bask in it.

The thing I am talking about is the water

The rain

The charity that God keeps giving us to sustain

I often run water and sit in the bath

 I reflect on life, I do the complex math

It is then it all begins

I lay my head back and It starts to soak in

I am surround by life

Everywhere I look God is hiding in front of my eyes

I long ago figured that out, so I go into the elements

And into God’s house when in doubt

God is the wind that moves us along,God is the force from the vocal chords that allows you to sing your song

God is the water gives us life, God is the light that gives us sight

God is the full moon on the darkest desert night.

For the last few years I have had to make sure it was right outside of my door

The closer I got to God, I started to understand the depth of the world around me more and more

I am not the soul that can pass by a beautiful scene or an ocean shore

I can see the rain, the wind, the storms as so much more

Much more than I ever could before

The lesson is playing out everyday in front of our eyes

But we are the ones playing seek when God is not trying to hide

That is what God told me this morning as I soaked in

I realized again how blessed I was to have such a complex/simple thing as the water on my skin

To be able to easily access such a vital thing is so much more than we realize

Its one of our greatest blessings

Another example of how God can bless you and hide in plain sight

Because you know


Some where

Has it worse than you right?
