Exploring God’s Universe

Esther M. Bailey

Try one of these ways to experience God in nature:

devozine Volunteer Team TS 86544276

  • Plant a flower and watch it grow. Become a partner in God’s creative process.
  • Savor the gentle breeze that cools you on a hot day. Think of it as God’s breath refreshing the earth.
  • Bite into a juicy peach; remember its source.
  • Cuddle your pet. Thank God for the gift of special animals.
  • Observe the work ethic of an ant. Read Proverbs 6:6-11 for further enlightenment.
  • Read in scripture about God’s creativity in nature: Psalm 147:4-18, Jeremiah 10:12-13, and Acts 14:17.
