Psalm 111:2-3

Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them. Majestic and glorious is his work.

Take some time to gaze at the natural world.

If you are immersed in suburbia or the inner city, find some nature photos to look at without making any mental commentary.

If possible, take some time to actually walk in the presence of nature.

Sit somewhere and simply look at the magnificence of creation.

It is a web of life, all of it existing in relationship to all that is.

Science recognizes this fact.

As astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said, “We are all connected; to each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.”

When we are present to life, life is present to us.

Aliveness is all around us, in us and through us.

We are immersed in the Great “I AM” as God self-identified in scripture (Exodus 3:14).

How magnificent, wondrous, and glorious is it all!
