Nature's Splendor

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalms 19:1

Sipping on a Coke Zero and dreaming about the garden. 🌱 We've definitely hit that part of winter where everything is a bit less magical and a lot more muddy.
I'm anxiously waiting for everything to turn green again and I'm hopeful that spring is coming soon because the backyard is changing and the birds are busy. 
Since my connection to nature has always brought me closer to God, I found myself in the book of Psalms for a little mid-week encouragement.
I wanted to share a quick message on my heart about showing up for God:

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it.  Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. • Psalms 96:11‭-‬12

Read those beautiful words! This is just one of many beautiful scriptures that illustrate for us how the sky and seas, land and trees, flowers, plants, and animals proclaim the Lord's handiwork.
No doubt about it, nature SHOWS UP for our Creator. To rejoice like this is goals. To say so much about God without ever speaking a word is beauty to behold. The splendor of nature is such a true testament of God's glory. But what's more awesome is this -- we are His creation, too, friends. Don't forget that.
To know God is an unfathomable blessing. To love Him, serve Him, and make Him known is our greatest purpose. It can be so easy to get sucked into earthly comings and goings, become lazy, and forget the magnitude of our existence. But we are created in God's own image, for His glory. Fearfully and wonderfully made. Let's be like nature and exalt our Creator the way the sea and the fields and the trees do. Let's be glad and jubilant, make waves, and sing for joy. Let's make some noise. 🌊

Let's show up for God.
