I see God in the wonder of His creation. I feel His presence and hear Him speak when I am taking in the wonder of what He has made. I’m glad my worship doesn’t stop there; with nature. I’m grateful, so grateful, for the recognition that I am a desperate sinner, in need of a miraculous way to be reconciled to God. I believe that Jesus is the way back to relationship with this amazing Creator. But regardless of what you think about God and Jesus and sin and separation and repentance…don’t you see a creative God’s hand at work in the ocean? Sunsets? Mountains? Rivers and lakes? I do. I hope you do too.
This world is such a masterpiece. Poets throughout time have written about it with much more eloquence than I can ever muster, but I always leave the ocean feeling like I’ve been painted a sunset by God’s own hand. Glorious.
We were given the use of a guest home in Florida for a week, and it was such an incredible gift during this time of in-between. Some lessons you need to relearn. Some scriptures you need to read anew with a heart that had been made more tender through disappointment. God never leaves us? He never forsakes us? I read that with awe and wonder. I know it to be true while wondering how it could be. I’m thankful for the margin granted last week to hear His voice a bit more clearly.
