Psalm 41, verses one and two, read, “As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God! I thirst for God, the living God. Where can I go and stand before him?”
These lines really struck me tonight because in the past several days when I have walked my dog down at the lake we have seen a lot of deer. They stand stock still when they see us approaching. My dog, Lucy, gets really excited, and her ears stand up as she picks up their scent.
I love God’s creation and I feel so close to him whenever I am outside in nature. We saw two great blue herons today when we were walking on our usual route, as well as the ducks and geese that call this lake their home.
This morning when I got up I saw blue jays at the feeder again. I am always struck by the exquisite beauty of their feathers, and how precise the design of their markings is. I always long to sit at God’s feet and ask him just how he chooses to design his creatures and what inspires him to mark them the way that he does.
These lines reminded me of how I feel when I am outside surrounded by God’s creations on every side. Even the variety of the trees makes me marvel at the expanse of God’s creativity and how he gave us such a beautiful environment in which to live.
