See The Beauty

“See The Beauty”
By Zach Wood
Psalm 57:10-11
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.”

As my family vacationed in Duluth this past weekend, we had the opportunity to travel the North Shore.  As we traveled, we couldn’t help but to keep stopping, taking pictures and taking in the amazing beauty all around Lake Superior.  As I stood there, gazing over the waters and the shores, I just kept thinking about God’s beauty and how awesome He is!  I’ve always been one to enjoy and be mesmerized by landscapes and scenery.  It’s one thing I enjoy most about traveling. 

After enjoying this trip and all the beauty surrounding Lake Superior, I had to think about how often in my daily life that I forget to take in the beauty of all that God puts around me.  I don’t have to take a long trip just to stop and take in the awesome beauty of what God has created.  I should be able to do that wherever I am.  You don’t have to travel to the mountains or to the ocean or to a big lake to see God’s beauty.  His beauty is all around us each and every day.  The problem is we are just too busy and caught up in our own lives to actually stop and see it. 

God’s love, faithfulness and beauty are all over the earth.  It’s amazing to think about all that He has created around us.  However, it’s sad to think we miss so much being so consumed with everything in our daily lives. 

I want to encourage all of us to take the time to stop and see the beauty each and every day that God has put around us.  We need to take time to see and take in that beauty and be thankful to Him for His creation.  I think it’s easy for us to take in the beauty when we’re on a trip for vacation because we’re seeing new places we’ve never been to.  We need to remember to take in the beauty each and every day.  His beauty, love and faithfulness are all around us.  Are we taking time to notice?
