I’ve been meaning to come back to post around here… probably once a month
And I thought Earth Day would be a perfect opportunity to do so
Buuuuut, as it happened, I didn’t do so this weekend
Better late than never, though hehe
God astounds me with His creation. How everything has a place and a purpose.
I love passages in which He uses His earth to teach us (for example how we can move mountains if our faith is as small as a mustard seed or when Jesus invites us to look at the lilies and consider the sparrows)
I honestly don’t have a “big insight” or idea to share today. Just a prayer and an invitation.
A prayer that we will never stop looking around us
(aka stop looking down to our cell phones for few long minutes) and being astonished by the creativity and uniqueness of our God. And may we all fulfill our purpose of caregivers of His creation.
To share my feeling of complete awe, I have chosen a part of Psalm 65 and a picture I took at Iguaçu Falls some years back.
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy.
You care for the land and water it;
you enrich it abundantly.
The streams of God are filled with water
to provide the people with grain,
for so you have ordained it.
You drench its furrows and level its ridges;
you soften it with showers and bless its crops.
You crown the year with your bounty,
and your carts overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;
the hills are clothed with gladness.
The meadows are covered with flocks
and the valleys are mantled with grain;
they shout for joy and sing.
