I am Blessed. Even though I am still unemployed (and actively looking for work!), last week I was able to go to Colorado and New Mexico with my best friend. All of God’s beautiful creation spoke to us throughout our trip.
“Then God looked over all He had made, and He saw that it was very good! And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day.” – Genesis 1:31 NLT
Not only did we enjoy virtually perfect weather, we were there very close to the peak of the aspens turning gold, and saw a tremendous amount of wildlife. From butterflies to bison, valleys to mountain peaks; from racing rivers to desert. Incredible. How is it even possible for anyone to see the leaves changing colors on the plants and trees, or the breathtaking scenery of the mountains and valleys, or the variety of wildlife, and not believe in the Creator God??? AmNot believing is something I just can’t comprehend!
“And all of creation sing with me now
Lift up your voice and lay your burden down
And all of creation sing with me now
Fill up the heavens let his glory resound…”
Listen to the song. I love to sing it out loud:”And ALL of creation sing with me now…” That’s what I felt was happening as we drove through all of this amazing country. When we actually open our eyes to the world around us, and open our ears to experience it, it can blow our minds. One stop we made was between Cimarron NM and Pagosa Springs CO so that we could step off the road and be close to the river. Even being so close to the road, the water running over the rocks made it so easy for me to tune out the modern sound of traffic, and immerse myself in the sounds and colors and smells and the feel of the air as it poured over me. Powerful.
These are words I use to describe our God: Blessed, beautiful, perfect, incredible, breathtaking, amazing, powerful… when we immerse ourselves in God, He overwhelms us with His Grace and His Mercies.
Are you immersed and overwhelmed today?
