It Is Well

When peace like a river

Attendeth my way

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot

Thou hast taught me to say

It is well

It is well

With my soul

There have been a few times in life where challenges build up and pressures mount and stress overwhelms. And at times like those watching the peaceful river or the crashing ocean waves brings peace to my weary soul. It refreshes and renews the spirit to spend time listening to God’s voice in nature. The trill of a hundred birds in the forest. The rush of water. His breath in the oceans roar. The flirting of hummingbirds and dragonflies. The gentle flap of butterfly wings. The smell of the pine filled forest. The beauty and intricately designed patterns, textures, and colors of flowers, pine cones, and leaves. God’s fingerprint is everywhere and in everything. He soothes us with his spirit, nature, and beauty. He loves details and patterns and design. He blesses us with the natural world to connect us to the spiritual world that gets separated from us when we are focused on other things.

Take time to notice the care he takes to place all these beautiful details in front of us for our delight and his.
