Summer is and can be a wonderful moment, a wonderful season, a time of reflection, a time of goodness, a time of joy.
Spending much time in the outdoors this Summer I have seen the goodness of God in this season. Sitting under a shaded tree, listening to the birds sing their songs as they enjoy the peaceful moments of life God is blessing them with.
“Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant and everything in them. Let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.” Psalm 96:11-12
This summer, this month I have found myself captivated by wonder and beauty.
Seeing how nature praises God, my heart fills with a desire to worship Him as well. To join in on the beauty of the moment. To fully understand what God has done, who He has been, who He is, and who He continues to be.
Fully embracing my life, fully embracing the truth of God’s goodness. Continually filling my Spirit with the fire of His presence.
The secret of truly living in any season really, but this Summer this reflection has really been impressed on my heart.
It’s in the way that I dress, it’s in the way that I speak.
This is a time where I get a chance to reflect. Reflect about the season and who I am in this moment of time.
I reflect on my age and who I’m meant to be.
I reflect on God’s Word. Who is He shaping me to be?
This is what I’ve found this Summer. Reflecting on my life and reflecting God’s goodness. Watching and taking in all His blessings, all His words, and all His kindness. Finding myself in God’s Word and in His purpose for my life.
