He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
Whatever you’re doing right now, stop. Take a moment to look around you at the world God created. He has truly surrounded us with beauty. All of His creation declares His glory. The colors of the seasons, the laughter of a child. The sounds of nature – a bird singing, the whisper of a gentle wind, the falling rain.
Time slips away so quickly. Lives are busy; so much so that I fear too often we neglect the beauty of God’s creation. We fail to “take time and smell the roses.” That’s a shame because He has given us so much to enjoy.
And just think, as beautiful as all this is, it is only a sampling, a taste of what is to come.
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”–(1 Corinthians 2:9)
Can I get an “AMEN”?
