One of my favorite family vacations we were camping up in the mountains in Colorado. Everyday we would go hiking on different paths, enjoying waterfalls and streams, the beauty of God’s creation surrounding us. Every few hours we would be in a new area, I would look around, sometimes for miles on the horizon, and I would think, “Wow. This is incredible. I cannot imagine anything more beautiful.”
And then a few hours would pass, we would find another breathtaking view, and I would have the same thought. “Wow. This is incredible. I cannot imagine anything more beautiful.” After a few more locations, I could not help but stop, sit down on a rock and start worshiping our Father through prayers and songs.
As time passed, I found myself totally silent, tears streaming down my face. I was with family that loved me, enjoying our beautiful world our Father created for me. And it hit me, as his child, each and everyday He had something new planned for me on the horizon. I just have to look and listen.
Psalms 27:7-8 says, “Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “your face, LORD, do I seek.” Our loving Father hears our prayers. He answers our prayers. Our desire is Him. And all I can think is, “Wow. This is incredible. I cannot imagine anything more beautiful.”
