Trusting the Invisible

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you subscribe to my devotions or newsletters you probably wonder why I usually comment about nature or the world in the beginning of just about every letter.  To me, nature is that connection to real life, to God, to the future, to a whole, healthy, fulfilling, healed existence.

Our eyes show us so much on a daily basis, in fact, we learn most through what we see, where we go, what we read/watch, and the actions we take as a result.

While we many not physically see God in this life, the proof we need is all around us.  God’s created amazing and intricate humans, animals to warm our hearts and nature to balance and ground us.

If you’re struggling with your faith or your life, take some time to stop and look around you.  Pick up a book about spirituality or living a fulfilling life.  Take a walk around a nearby nature center or park.

What does what you see teach you?
