“O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” (Psalm 8:1)
One summer my husband and had the opportunity to travel to the emerald isle. The camera was attached to my wrist, where it was handy, since there was one great shot after another. On this particular day there was a family behind us, also sightseeing. The adults and the grandparents seemed captured and caught up by the natural splendor. The youngest seemed oblivious to the grandeur surrounding us; his focus was fixed on a handheld computer game.
Sometimes I am just like that child. I can get so caught up in what I have in my hands that I miss what God has in His.
God is all around us in nature, sharing His majesty and revelation (see Psalm 104). Not just in the mountains and hidden waterfalls, but also in a daisy, a perfectly veined leaf, the flash of a lightning bolt, or in glistening drops of rain.
Open my eyes, Lord, and thank you for helping me shift my focus to what You have for me to see this day.
