Psalm 27:4 (NIV)
4 One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
Moments abound in life when only the healing balm of God’s love and His omnipresent presence will soothe, comfort and sustain. This salve can only be applied by God’s hand. In a time such as this, all I could utter was “I need to go to the park!” Such a simple request from me was the equivalent of someone else crying “I want to go home!”
Surrounded by beauty my raging spirit, calmed, my ears tuned for the twittering of birds and whisper of waving grass. As I heard and saw the breeze ruffle the leaves, I was comforted. As I watched a butterfly move closer and closer to me I felt wrapped in the arms of my Father, God. Enveloped in nature my spirit was able to soar, my storms quieted and order restored.
There are truly moments when all that is needed is the chance to occupy a small patch of ground, not made by human hands to be reminded how truly great are the wonders of God’s wonders There is a balm that calmed and quieted as I surveyed beauty created by the same God who formed Adam and me.
Making His praise glorious!
