Being outside has long been a place that I could go to think and to talk to God. Whether walking in the woods, mowing the grass, or working in the garden, the fresh air allows me to refresh and the time in nature reminds me of God's power. I feel closer to God when I step outside of the man-made world and into His glorious creation!
Sometimes we become too insulated by all of the stuff that we accumulate. Our man-made things can distract us from God, but His creation is always showing His power and glory. When we take time to walk with God in creation, we can learn from Him through lessons revealed by all of His works. Whether we are stressed or in need of time with God, stepping outside spending time in His creation can help to renew and teach us!
Step outside and take time to talk to God and learn from His creation!
Thank You for the world that You have created. Help me to continue to appreciate, protect, and learn from it. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
