“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.” (Psalm 24:1).
Have you recently seen or touched the baby soft petals of a rose? What about the virtual fields of lavenders swaying in the wind that take your breath away? Imagine the rolling tide of dancing waves contrasting a turquoise ocean that displays its majestic beauty. All of the natural delightful gifts from the spoken words of the Creator God are designed to bring joy to our hearts.
Despite Satan’s attempt to destroy our peaceful state of mind, we can always find healing from the inviting arms of nature. If we spend time surrounded by the earth’s beauty, the psychologists and therapists would have a substantial decrease in their patient case loads. And Big Pharma would not be a super power dispensing anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds, and sleep-aids as if our lives depended on it.
Last year, I left the concrete jungle and moved to the Florida Space Coast. On a weekly basis, I stand in awe of sea gulls gliding, pelicans posing on one leg, and the dolphins playing in the Atlantic Ocean. This is my dream of success, enjoying the serenity that comes from God’s spoken words.
I invite you to leave your virtual world once a week and explore the beauty of our earth. Your appreciation of our Heavenly Father will become deeper. Truly, He is a loving God.
“Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:31)
Prayer: Thank you, God. Amen
