Saturday Scriptures #22-Finding God in Nature

God's Glory On Tour In Nature

God's glory is on tour in the skies,
God-craft on exhibit across the horizon.
Madame Day holds classes every morning,
Professor Night Lectures each evening.

Their words aren't heard,
their voices aren't recorded,
But their silence fills the earth;
unspoken truth is spoken everywhere.
Psalm 19:1-2 (The Message)

In my opinion, nature is a teacher. When I look at the beauty of the earth in the woods, the sky and the seas, I know that God is alive and working not only in my life and the lives of others, but also in the world around me. I always feel close to God when I am in nature. The silence speaks volumes to me of God's love and plans for me and those I love and care about. The silence speaks of the truth of God. How can someone look at the world that God has made and not believe? For me, that is impossible. Some people feel that they worship best when they are outside in nature. I don't believe that is true for myself, but I understand those who feel that way. My husband calls the outdoors, "The Green Cathedral." I hope you can take a few moments to enjoy "The Green Cathedral" and to feel close to God in this space that He has created for our pleasure and enjoyment. 


*Your thoughtful comments are always welcome.

I am very much aware of God in nature, and spend as much time outside as I can. When the birds wake me up in the morning, I am aware of God's hand in my life. I feel as close to God in nature as I can get. This did not all happen by accident. This post really spoke to me!!
