Slow Down to See God’s Gifts

I love to worship God.  I love to see His glory in His creation.

I saw this beautiful clematis. But it wasn’t until I stopped, moved the camera lens in closer, that I saw the incredible detail.  Why does God take the time to create such beauty, that we too often miss?  God made us to worship and glorify Him. I think God creates incredible beauty for us to find when we slow down and and enjoy the world around us.

I love how some of the other Bible versions tell how to Ascribe Glory to God – Honor, Worship, Give, Praise.

Honor the Lord for the glory of His name.  Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness.  New Living Translation

Give to the Eternal the glory due His name; worship Him with lavish displays of sacred splendor.  The Voice

Praise the Lord for the glory of His name; worship the Lord because He is holy.  New Century Version

Take some time to spend before the face of God. It is a great time to walk through the park or the woods. Enjoy the flower gardens. Walk down by the creek or lake and look at the rocks and critters.  Our 7-year-old gets this.  Whenever she is over, she spends a long time looking at all the rocks under the deck, looking for fossils. She’s found some incredibly tiny ones.  She was just at a lake and loved finding tiny shells and snails.

One of the best days to do this is on Sunday.  God made the Sabbath for rest, recovery and time to spend enjoying Him. Take some time this coming Sunday to enjoy God’s beautifully unique creation up close and personal.

Praying you can find some time to slow down and enjoy God’s creation ~ Faye
