Soaking up the goodness of God

I love nature because I see the goodness of God everywhere in it.

Sitting on my back deck early in the morning, feeling the sun warm the back of my neck to just the right temperature, beholding the blue sky, green trees, pink blooms on the rose bushes and hearing the sound of birds chirping all says to me,”Hey, I’m God and I really care about you and your well-being.”

I take a deep breath of fresh air and it literally feels like I’m soaking up the goodness of God.

I tend to find both arrogance and foolishness in those that say that God does not exist for I see Him everywhere.

I see Him in every piece of nature and in the wondrous workings of our earthly bodies designed to live perfectly in this world created just for us. From eyes that adjust automatically accordingly to the light to a heart that tirelessly pumps blood for decades non-stop and a digestive system that knows exactly how to break down the food we take in to nourish our bodies, the design is incredible. Not to mention our brain that sends signals both voluntary and involuntary at rapid lightning speed as needed or our defense system that attacks and kills viruses and dangerous bacteria to keep us healthy. We have no control over these automatic bodily functions and seldom even think about them.

I see him in the design of the earth. The way everything naturally recycles with the plants breathing in the carbon dioxide we exhale and giving us back the precious oxygen that we need to sustain our life.

The way the sun evaporates water from the earth in order to to water it again where needed; the way the earth is placed at the perfect distance from the sun so we have warmth but we don’t neither burn nor freeze to death and the way it rotates and tilts to give us the different seasons all show precision planning.

The Bible says to seek him and you will find him. Truth is, we have to look no further than the nose on our face.

Everyone today may not believe in God, but everyone is certainly dependent on Him. This I know.

For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen. Being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
