I run so I can eat six Oreos in one sitting. I walk so I can look for God.
It’s evening and I walk around Holmes Lake, taking my time because no one waits. I bring my camera and bend low and close to see. This walk is slow. I’m not intent on burning calories but keen to catch a glimpse.
It doesn’t feel like Nebraska summer as the breeze blows cool and bugless. I stroll atop the dike and step aside, tall grass tickling knees, to let the power-walkers pass. Red-wing blackbird swoops low, scarlet splashed on black, two thrumming hearts.
Lilly pads turn up veined bellies in the breeze, greeting bullfrogs snuggled amongst reeds, their eyes black marbles afloat in velvet duckweed. A perfect disk of clear water lies flat like a translucent jelly fish on green pad.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning — the sixth day. (Genesis: 1:31).
They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. (Romans: 1:19-20, NLT)
Are you looking for God in your everyday? Where are you spotting him today?
