So how do we honor our Creator? If we love him and stand in awe of what he has done, we are naturally compelled to reflect his glory. I've been taking note of nature lately. We are told that every snowflake is different. When we drive through a forest, we see that every tree is unique. It wouldn't be nearly as pretty if they were all identical. And there are so many facets of creation ~ the mountains, the canyons, the active rivers and the still rocks. There are parts of creation that change with every season, and some things that take thousands of years to change.
Sometimes we scurry around trying to "do" something noble, admirable, something FOR God. But have you noticed, nature never does? The deer just graze and wag their tails because that's what they were created to do. The mountains stand firm day after day, century after century. Babies eat, sleep, and play.
Do you SOAR like the eagle (Isaiah 41), or are you SORE from flapping ... trying ... doing? It was such a relief when I got this picture a few days ago, and heard God graciously telling me (again) that I don't need to DO anything... speak in a certain way, worship in a certain way, pray in a certain way, spend my time in a certain way, to honor him. I honor Him by loving Him while I go about doing what I enjoy, and what comes natural...
...and so do you!
