Some of God’s most beautiful creations aren’t found in backyard gardens or front porch flower beds, but rather in the deepest parts of His yard.
Take time to unplug and disconnect from your daily routine and connect with God. He WANTS to spend time with you, and what better place then in His backyard. So go hiking or camping, pull up a log or rock, take a look around and listen to what He has to say. His words (especially in scripture) and conversation to you are more soothing and comfortable then anything being played through your earbuds that iTunes has to offer. They paint a picture brighter and happier then any movie with a “happy ending.” And his words are not gossiping disgruntled rants of my-life-sucks or of hate that we see all too often plastered on the virtual walls of our life.
So whatever you may be going through, unplug for a little and plug into the greatest power available to us, a supernatural power that comes from the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised us before ascending to sit at the right hand of His Father.
And remember, life is one long hiking trip that isn’t meant to be rushed.
