In my morning devotional today, I read:
People only have to look at the creation around them to know that an invisible hand has brought into being all they can see.
Romans 1.20 (The Truth translation)
and Psalm 104, in the Message, speaks of "a wildly wonderful world".
How true these two verses are for me.
Here's my reflection on Psalm 104, from ‘Dwelling in the Psalms':
Spending time in nature is a very healing thing to do, especially when times are difficult. Why not try and take a close look at nature today, whether it's a wide vista of rolling countryside, or a close up view of the intricacy of a flower. Take time to stand and stare, appreciate the beauty and let wonder quieten all your other concerns, if only for a moment.
Then maybe you might like to join me in praying this prayer:
"Dwelling in the Psalms" has lots more reflections and prayers like this, in fact it covers all 150 of the psalms.
It's available from my webshop, or from all good Christian bookshops and, of course, from Amazon.
