It has been a long Winter season for the children of God. In reading the Song of Solomon verse 2.11 this morning before starting my day, this particular verse resonated for me.
Song of Solomon 2.11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; 2.12 The flowers appear on earth; the time of singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; 2:13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
My wife and I went on a hike this past weekend and enjoyed the smells, the sights, the touch of fresh water in a small stream, the joy in other hikers faces as they were seeing and feeling the power of God’s nature. It was a revitalizing hike and helped us re-charge for the coming weeks and months in this ever changing world. It is a reminder of God’s grace and forgiveness when you spend time in nature, there is a one to one feeling that you can feel God’s greatness just by touching a tree, or smelling the freshness of your surroundings after a rain shower.
I have noticed the positive effect of that hike days after our adventure. I am much more at peace and very calm with the stormy atmosphere we are surrounded with here on earth. It is very reassuring that God is with us always, all we have to do is get out in nature a bit and find him.
God Bless you all.
