Resolutions: Draw closer to God through nature
BIBLE READING: Psalms 19.1
Spend time communing with God through nature. Observe the beauty in the world that God has made for us. To see a glimpse of His power in the expanse of the ocean and its relentless waves that pound the seashore; to breath in the sweetness of the majestic mountains with their laurels, so breathtakingly beautiful that we, like Jacob, will say, “Surely the Lord is in this place.” Feel the spider web’s strength. Listen as the songbirds serenade. Smell a newborn baby, the smell of a puppy. Watch the floating clouds and the beautiful sunset. Stand in the summer’s shower and taste the rain. By observing God’s creation, our faith in Him and in His power is reinforced. Psalm 19:1 – “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”
Make a resolution to slow down and smell the roses.
