As I watched the sunrise this morning I thought to myself, “How big is this and how small am I?”
I used to think I liked majestic scenery simply because I appreciate design and beautiful visuals, but while studying my bible this week I discovered a new thought… The question was asked, “What makes you think there is a God and creator?”
After pondering on it, I realized I feel most peaceful and assured of God when I’m outdoors and taking notice of the grand design of things. It makes a person awfully humble to know they are next to nothing in this big wide world. I even found some insight that I wasn’t looking for…
I have always loved to travel. I’ve almost felt guilty for liking it so much, as if it’s selfish and discontent to want to see and do more! However, this week I recognized that the main reason I love traveling is because It helps me absorb how much is out there and how small I am in comparison.
I believe that after salvation comes sanctification (1 peter : 1-2 ) which is basically the process of becoming less about us and more about God. I know there are plenty of hard things to see in this world, but there is beauty for those who believe…
“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” -Roald Dahl
I am looking at the beauty around me a little differently now, and trying to add more time for the things that make me feel small and in awe of God. What is something that draws you closer to God?
