Enjoying God’s Creation

These trees make me look small.

As I thought about what to post today, I could hear the birds chirping outside on a beautiful sunny morning. It was just a small reminder of the wonders of God’s creation.

I love going for walks and looking at the things God has made. At this time of year it’s great to watch how quickly the little buds on the trees transform into leaves. Everything “greens up” so quickly.

Last year Casey and I had the wonderful opportunity to go hiking through the Redwoods. These majestic trees cannot help but inspire awe. However, we have to maintain a proper perspective. As incredible as these trees are, we should be in awe of the God who made them. His attributes are on display throughout His creation (Romans 1:20). 

Make it a point to get out and look at what God has made and thank Him for it. Although our sin has brought so much ugliness and suffering into this world, there are still remnants of beauty. Just imagine what the new heavens and new earth will look like. It will be a place with no more death, sin, and suffering and we will live with God (Revelation 21:3-4). I hope to see you there.

Thanks for reading.
