What a beautiful day...



I decided to go for a drive today...

To look at California Lilacs ... and I was surprised with so much beauty!




Not sure why I was surprised... but once again my soul was touched by the beauty of God's creation!




He created this?!
He gave us all of this?!



Just to show us a glimpse of Heaven?!



To remind us of His love?!



As encouragement to keep trusting Him?!



After all, if He cares enough to feed these plants precariously perched on a hillside... no human waters them, fertilizes them... prunes them.



Just God himself...



And if He cares for the wildflowers... who do not verbally lift praise to Him, testify in His name or serve Him through walking in faith...



How much more is He going to care for us?! Take care of our needs?! Feed us and "fertilize" us... "prune" us and shape us...





What an amazing God...



That He can orchestrate this beauty...











Matthew 6:30-34
"If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Maybe the plants don't "verbally speak praise to him", but I'm not so sure. The sky certainly does! Look at this passage from Psalm 19: 1-5: "1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. 3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. 4. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. " Look: "declare, proclaim, pour forth speech, voice goes out, words..." (Learned this at "Truth Project".)
