Are we too busy working to admire God’s work?

Psalm 24: 1-2

“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The World and all it’s people belong to him. For he laid the earth’s foundation on the sea and built it on the ocean depths.”

To have a relationship with God, it’s good to take time to enjoy and marvel at what he’s created. That’s not easy for us commuters to do! We generally stand on the same part of the platform every morning and sit in the same carriage, maybe even in the same seat. Rarely would we look out of the window. We think there’s nothing interesting. But spending time with God can also mean spending time with all that he created. Take a quick look at the way the sunlight hits the trees and the color of the morning sky and all the beauty surrounding you. And then be at peace. If God has the power to continuously change the color of the leaves then he has the power to help you in all that have to face at work. You just need to open your heart. Be still, and know that the Lord is with you.

 

– Heavenly Father, we praise you for all that you have created for us. We pray that we can spend more time marveling at its beauty and help us protect this earth for future generations. Amen
