The black-and-white butterflies danced in front of our feet as we walked down the rocky path towards the shoreline of lake in front of us.
A bird circled overhead and cawed, reminding us that this was his territory.
The wind was strong that day and the trees sang and danced as the gusts caused their limbs to sway to and fro.
We were taking some time away with family, free of meetings and client calls. A time to breathe, something my husband and I both desperately needed.
There were sounds and movement all around us but I was filled with peace.
That kind of peace where you know all is well. Being able to unplug and just drink in this world that was created just for us.
I couldn’t help but feel a sense of gratitude at the multitude of ways nature sings praises to the One who created all of it.
The trees making a song with their branches and the birds soar high on the currents of the air, rhythmically moving with the wind. The waves join in on the lake as they build and crash across the surface of the water. The plants and flowers provide beauty. All of it is a reminder to me that God is ever present.
There has always been something about nature that has drawn me closer to God.
It is as though in these moments where I step away and just pause to see, that I am overwhelmed at all He is and has done for me.
I need to be more intentional about taking the time to seek Him in the world around me.
Stepping away from the clatter of the busyness of life and into the sounds of celebration and praise that nature provides.
Is there a place that you connect most with God? Take some time this week and unplug so that you can connect with God!
