Beauty All Around Us

Psalm 148:5 (NKJV)
Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded and they were created.

When is the last time you thanked the Creator for His creation? We live in such a fast-paced world we miss out at times. Take the time to listen to the birds and thank Him for creating them and the songs they sing. Take the time to see the mountains and appreciate how each dirt particle is in place that allows the rain to seep into the roots of the wonderful trees on the mountain side. Oh yes, the trees are the homes for the birds you hear. As you listen to the birds you hear a rolling stream that flows from the mountain top that eventually flows into the ocean. As you remember the trip to the ocean where you saw the beauty of His creating the sea and sand. The water that has fish you enjoy and reminds you of Bible stories you grew up with.

As you reflect, you see that God created everything to Glorify Him. As we seek His love and all He wants to show you in His Scriptures, also remember all the beauty He has created for you to enjoy on your journey with Him. A winter snow, an orange sunset, a rainbow in the sky after a rain, a breeze that cools an evening after a hot summer day are just a few examples to be thankful for in your life. He created you to worship Him and enjoy life so take the time to thank Him for all He has shown you and for how much He loves you.
