The sun comes up in the morning and you awaken to a clear blue sky? Will you question the glory and wonder why? Or will you smile at the sunshine and tell God “hi”!
The flowers bloom and the grass is green? Will you hide in room so you won’t be seen? Or will you run outside and make your senses keen!
A sudden storm arrives and thunder you hear Will you shrivel up in terror and fear? Or will you spread out your arms and shout, “Yes! Rain is here!”
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I pray our eyes are opened to the majesty and glory of those things God puts in our lives each and every day.
The sun… the moon… the stars… the trees… the flowers… the grass… the mountains and valleys… the lakes and streams… the oceans and the sand… the rain and the rainbow…
Close your eyes. Can you picture each of them? Do they make you smile?
What if… the day gets long and you’re feeling low. Close your eyes and let God’s glory glow… FEEL the warmth of the sun, or the sand on your feet… SEE the moon and the stars shining ever bright… FEEL the breeze he created and SEE the trees gently sway… KNOW the rain is much needed and SEE the rainbow. HEAR the water trickling as it wends its way over rocks and waterfalls… Allow your mind to relax and enjoy what it knows about all the mighty wonders of creation.
When you open your eyes once again, do not forget that you exist because of the glory of God. The same God that created the heavens and the earth created you. Isn’t that wonderful?!?!
