Walking with God: The Power of using Nature to transform our lives and give us more meaning

Simply Accepted

God colored the heavens in a great expanse of gorgeous arrays and set the earth as a palette of life for his footstool. In every nook and cranny there was life set that is unfathomable to the mortal mindset. Infinite wonders and precious moments do creation no justice by the writings of any pen.

Yet God created us to fellowship with him. He blessed us to be greatest among all creation.

As a glorious sunrise warms the earth, God smiled through it into the soul of man. Our eyes possess the light of God or the darkness of death.

The earth shouts out the wonderful glories of God through its own amazement; yet we are just simply accepted by a loving creator. We are just simply loved. We are just simply cradled in the arms of his mercy and ever abiding peace.

From the deep recesses of the darkest parts of earth, to the misty peaks of the mountains, God smiles and joys in his people.

My soul is overwhelmed to the greatness of God's love for me! Wallowing with the pities of life's circumstances, yet I am still just simply accepted.

The oceans roar and the wind bellows ferociously, but God delights more in a soul giving thanks to him by his awesome amazement. The widest crevice or the deepest cavern cannot contain the devotion from the creator to the creation.

How we are just simply loved and accepted is a true testament of a hope that never fails or disappoints. Rich or poor. Healthy or sick. Or dying. Falsely judged, cast out, cast off or left destitute. Beautiful or rough around the edges. Scared up or unrecognizable. All of us, just simply accepted by a loving God and a just creator.

He holds out his hand when we sink in the pits of helplessness. He opens the gates of heaven for those dying who truly love him. He saves the oppressed and delivers the weak.

He answers prayers and strengthens when there is nothing left to give or take. Pits of despair and bonds of fear melt away at his presence and blow into oblivion with the gentle wind he sends to calm restless spirits.

Yet we are just simply accepted by reasoning we cannot comprehend or even begin to fathom.

I cannot transform into a beauty like a simple flower. Nor can I understand the depths of the ocean, or the blackness of space that rests above us in silence.

Or how the morning and evening skies grace our lives with colors that artists strive to copy: no two clouds the same. No two flowers the exact. All created uniquely different, and simply accepted. Just as they are. Just as we are. "How great are his signs! And how mighty are his wonders!" Daniel 4:3.

To look at life, and claim there is no creator is absolutely absurd. We are simply accepted because God created us to be accepted by him.

Miracles flourish around us abundantly in massive waves we most often fail to see or comprehend. The heavens rejoice in wonder when one person repents and accepts Jesus as their savior. We may not hear it, but you can feel it bursting up inside of you and overflowing like a crested river.

We should wither in fear at the wonder of earths beauty and the life that has been allowed to grace our planet.

Yet God is greater and more magnificent and most do not even blink an eye. Most do not comprehend the awesome majesty of a savior who came, died and rose again so we could all be granted life eternal for free.

You can talk to God anywhere, yet in the solitude of nature talking to the creator of nature itself is a two fold blessing

The flowers bloom in an everlasting grace.

The heavens blow around us to show a greater work at hand than we can comprehend.

Miracles abound through life from a true father that really loves and saves.

A loving creator who formed life through an impenetrable darkness, giving light to a dying world, created this beauty.

From within the uncomprehendable massive folds of an unexplorable universe, we have been given a gift greater than what we see, hear and feel that surrounds us.

A gift of being just simply accepted for who you are, by a loving God who is ready and willing to forgive and accept unconditionally.

"And the spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." Revelation 22:17.
