I love the Lord. I love the Lord with all of my heart. I also love nature.
Nature is one of the ways that I take care of myself through means of self-care. Nature is also one of the ways that I glorify God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
~”On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.”~~Psalm 145:5, ESV~
Yesterday, I went on a nature walk. I breathed in and I breathed out the fresh air as I walked along the nature trails of the nature park near my town house. I enjoyed looking at the people passing by me. From adults to young children, they all catch my eye as a part of God’s creation. I marveled at every flower along the grassy pathways of the nature trails. I stopped to look the flowers and began to think.
I thought about God and how He used His hands to form the flowers, the trees, and other parts of nature. I thought about the days that it took God to create nature through the days of creation. God did create the earth after all.
As I closed my eyes, I began to thank God for giving me this opportunity to go to the nature park today. From watching the people to looking at the flowers, I am still taken aback by God’s wonderful creation. His creation is magnificent. Indeed!
~”He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.”~~Ecclesiastes 3:11, ESV~
I tuned out all distractions as I continued to thank God. I thanked God for this day called Saturday. I thanked God for the many opportunities that He is giving me. I have officially written my first book, but it is not published yet because it is still being copy-edited. I thank God for making the way for me to write my first book and provide me the money that I need to get it copy-edited. My journey is just beginning.
I thank God for my family. My family means the world to me even though I do not see them much. I pray for them everyday still in my prayer closet as I be still in His presence and thank God that they are my family.
I thank God for my church family. Their prayers mean the world to me as I have continued on this journey to get my first book published. I thank God for my church family’s continued love, support, and prayers over my life. I bless them, in Jesus’ Name.
And it is with this last step that I take in the nature park that I walk back to my car and start praising the Lord. God is good. Hallelujah and Amen!!
