Be Pure


It’s common knowledge that being surrounded by nature is good for our mental health. I believe this is because it is when we are in nature that we are closest to our Creator.

This doesn’t mean that everyone will feel drawn to God when in nature in the same way that I do. But this is one way that we can worship God that you might want to try.

For as long as I can remember I have loved being in nature, and it always seems to come back to who God is. The powerful roar of the ocean and the great heights of the Rockies remind me of how great our God is, yet how much He loves the smallest of us. Wherever I am, I need only to step outside to feel close to Him. The detail in His handiwork, the colours and textures, the sounds, the fresh air on my skin, and the scent of nature itself all draw me to worship Him.

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.  Romans 1:20

Knowing God and worshiping Him is right outside your door. Whether you’re in the city or country, try stepping outside and noticing the evidence of God in the flowers, the birds, even the leaves on the sidewalk!

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  Psalm 8:3-4


Keep Seeking the Kingdom!
