As my eyes wonder over to the window doors that frame one small corner of God’s beauty in creation, I see His trees. Lots of trees. Some small, some tall, with leaves green, some with grayness and bare. Long branches, short branches, all reaching out for different spaces, some managing to intertwine as they reach for the same space.
But all and every tree stretches with it’s all and every branch, reaching up and out, like arms and hands raised up and open to praise God, to bring their offering of glorified worship to their wonderful, perfect, beautiful creator.
Nature in its simplicity open and free worshipping God our creator.
God, over and above, looks and smiles His blessings of seasons. Seasons of light and warm suns bringing growth and business. The quench of nourishing rains, the cold’s stillness and rest. And in all seasons these trees remain with their arms open trustful and thankful, worshipping God their creator.
And so God shows us, encouragingly through His beauty in creation, in all seasons, to trust, be thankful and worship Him, God our creator.
Psalm 96:11-13 NIV
11, Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12, Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let the trees of the forest sing for joy.
13, Let all creation rejoice before the LORD, for he comes
he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness and the people in his faithfulness.
