Once again, I find myself grateful for the stunning and breathtaking ways that God shows up in nature. Sometimes, it feels like He’s showing off, and why not? Who else could make a world as beautiful as the one He’s fashioned for us to enjoy?
It’s not perfect by any means, but good heavens! It sure is pretty in some places.
Here is my prayer for today: Dear Lord, thank You for making Earth such a beautiful place, and for giving me the ability to access and enjoy Your stunning artistry and creativity. Help me to remember that whether I live by the beach or not, there is always something in Your creation that I can stop and admire, and pause to acknowledge the work of Your mighty hands. I’m amazed that You simply spoke a word, and all of this beauty came into existence – no further effort was required on Your part. May I never casually disregard a beautiful sunset, stunning beach view, or lush countryside ever again. Thank You for making this world absolutely breathtaking! Even in its brokenness, it’s still an incredibly stunning place. In Your name I pray, Amen.
