O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Psalm 8:9
To miss the majesty of God while enjoying an incredible mountain view or while listening to crashing waves upon the seashore is difficult. Knowing that a flower grows from a small seedling into a beautiful blossom only increases our wonder. The changing of the seasons is another testament to the splendor of our Lord. His sunrises and sunsets electrify our senses. The rain He sends cleanses the earth and refreshes the soil; snowfalls chill the air and warm our hearts. Moonbeams shine through our windows at night to relax our weary bodies and provide a silent lullaby.
All of these grand elements of nature loom large over our seemingly tiny existence. We may think God doesn’t notice us under the canopy of His splendid creation. But child of God, even though you may sometimes seem small compared to the wonders of the earth, know that you are God’s most cherished creation. No beach or mountain can compare to the value you hold in God’s eyes.
Almighty God, thank You for valuing me and giving me life!
