I Saw God Today

Jacqueline WiltWe have had a hard year … as have many people in this changing world today. I was feeling particularly sorry for my personal problems one day and decided to go for a walk to clear my head. It was a gorgeous day, a sharp contrast to my murky mood. I began to pray for God to help me to understand why things were happening the way they were and to give me the strength and wisdom to get through it … Thankfully, I took my camera along …

I noted the brown, dry grass crunching underfoot. Everything, in the midst of what was supposed to be the dawn of spring, was still dead and lifeless.

Until … I stopped and saw a small, white flower peeking out from among the brown grass!

False Garlic flower

I began searching for more … and began to happily play hopscotch trying to avoid the bounty of blooms scattered across the native grass carpet.

Isn't it amazing how such a great God can show Himself in such small ways? It teaches us to "be still" and appreciate the simple things in life.

Jacqueline ~ John 14:1 came to mind..."Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me." I've always turned to nature for confirmation of goodness. The white pine is such a symbol. There are always 5 needles in a clump of white pine needles. Never 6, never 4, but 5. Intelligent design, to be sure. Great post ~ especially the part about going back to God and thanking him for the confirmation. Sherry
