~Psalm 92:5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

It is not difficult to notice God’s handiwork as it is all around us! Take a moment to look around today and challenge yourself to see God’s beauty. Give Him the glory and the praise for He is good! All His creation testifies of Him! His creation gives us a tiny glimpse of God’s nature! As we behold His works, we see that God loves color – for look closely at a Painted Bunting and a Cardinal and see the Master’s paintbrush at work!

Painted Bunting and Cardinal

The songs of the Painted Bunting and Cardinal are so melodious! Not only is our God an artist but He also loves sounds! He loves variety as well. For when I walk in the forest, I see thousands of different trees, bushes, plants, flowers and ground coverings. I could sit on this subject for quite some time but I think you probably understand where I am going with this topic!

When you are at a loss for words and feel as though your words during your prayer time, wrap your thoughts around the Father’s creation and you will find plenty to praise Him for!

~Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

No matter where we live, we can look around us and see God’s creation. We can learn about God’s greatness just by sitting still and observing the beauty around us. Some of His creation brings us to this realization quicker than others, I have to admit. Like the mountains of Alaska – what beauty to behold. When I sat and beheld such beauty, I was moved to tears at the wonders of His Hand.

This same Creator is there to comfort us and encourage us in our time of need! Take some time out today to know God! Praise His Holy Name!

~Isaiah 66:13a As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you;

Dannspider

~Ecclesiastes 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

God has given us such beauty to behold in His creation! Creation appeals to all of our senses. Not only can you see a Cardinal with his beautiful red feathers but you can hear his chirps. The ocean’s roar is accompanied by wave after wave crashing at the shoreline and its colors reflect God’s glorious sky!  The countless flowers given to us not only reflect the Lord’s love for colors, but His pleasure is found in the various scents given to them.

Each element of life on this earth emulate the Lord! We just need to take a moment to look and reflect!  Watching a spider spin its web teaches us tenacity, hard work, and patience.  If you don’t think so, try undoing his web – sit back and watch.  You will not have to wait but a few seconds and quickly comes to spin his new home.  To top it off, some spiders have five different silks they use for different needs.

How awesome is our God?!

~Nehemiah 9:5b …Stand up and bless the LORD your God for ever and ever: and blessed be thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise.

A simple walk through the woods will give you countless opportunities to meditate on God’s Goodness through His creation.

~Psalm 150:2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
