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.
