I had the most amazing walk yesterday, right in my “backyard” as they say.
In the future I would love to see the Grand Canyon, Machu Picchu and the Norwegian Fjords, these are places renowned for their natural beauty and wonder.
But yesterday walking along the road outside my house I felt as if I was walking in the most beautiful place on earth.
The sun was shining, the sky was clear blue and it was warm, a really unusual combination for early November in the north of Scotland.
The leaves on the trees were green, brown, yellow orange and red; the colours were simply delightful.
I watched a few butterflies, a dunnock, a sparrowhawk and a couple of deer in the fields.
And I thanked God for His amazing Creation, I could feel God in all His splendour.
I really was in awe and wonder at how beautiful the trees, birds and animals were.
The Bible says to rejoice at all times, to pray at all times, and I believe that was what I was doing in His world yesterday.
It is well known that we do not cherish enough what we have on our own doorsteps; I wonder what amazing wonders of Creation you walked past yesterday and didn’t notice.
Go for a walk in His world tomorrow and look with wonder and awe at what He has made.
Ultimately it was all made for you and me to live in and enjoy; that is an amazing truth.
Go out and enjoy His creation tomorrow.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you are the great Creator, and thank you Lord that it pleased you to create me”.
Colossians 1 v 16…..For by him were all things made, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him
