Rainbows, Butterflies, Waves, & Mountains


Life can be so incredibly busy, life can be so incredibly hard, life can be so filled with distractions, and we can be so prone to busyness, to getting overwhelmed with life’s struggles, and to being continually distracted. So much so that we neglect to see and recognize and acknowledge and enjoy and thank the Lord for His endless blessings in the way of the sky, the sun, moon, and stars, nature, animals, and the environment.

Sunrises, sunsets. Rainbows. Butterflies. Dogs. Swans, ducks, and geese. Ocean waves. Mountains. Woods, creeks, and rivers. These are just a few of countless beautiful blessings from God we can so easily overlook, disregard, take for granted, not appreciate, and fail to enjoy and praise the Lord for.

I confess over the years I have become so consumed with my life calling and life’s challenges and with the busyness of this life that less and less it seems I notice all God’s beauty manifested in all the ways mentioned.

Perhaps you can relate at least to some degree.

Let us open wide our eyes, ears, and hearts to the blessedness of all the Lord Jesus Christ has created, let us enjoy these blessings, and let us praise, praise, praise the Lord for them!

“…The heavens declare the glory of  God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” Psalms 19:1 NKJV

“Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is the great God, And the great King above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth; The heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His, for He made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.” Psalms 95:1-6 NKJV
