Good morning, DearOne.
My sons grew up outdoors. They are more at home outside than they are inside. My man is rarely inside before thirty minutes past dark.
They lock in on a sense of wonder in nature. They know the trees and the leaves and the trails and the markings at our rural Oklahoma home. They know the space so well that they could likely wake from a month’s long sleep, look around, and tell you their location by looking at the trees.
These were spiritual disciplines they practiced without even knowing. Our world ablaze with a wonder would send some into orbit – close to terror … our Creator’s wildness filling every detail of space. A school of the beasts, large and small. We dance with the Divine out here, because when we notice His hand in the life all around, He turns us on to a wild freedom.
God governs our nature and in our human perspective, we realize it’s not always all about us, it’s about the whole of His creation. Everything cycles and blooms and drops leaves over and over again according to His timing. His ways are right.
This is the place where I feel a chord of deep humility rising in loving kinship with His creation … a place where together, we’re responding to the lure of God’s glory.
Today, can you simply choose to place every thought in the hands of our Savior, knowing this cycle is part of the Divine?
‘But if we look forward to something we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:25, 28 NLT
God called you to this day.
