Looking Glass

“Pantheism, seeing the natural world as divine, is a very different thing than seeing the divine God present in all things…nature is not God but God revealing the weight of Himself, all His glory, through the looking glass of nature.”
 – Anne Voskamp/One Thousand Gifts

Wide open oceans and mountain top peaks are the two places where I hear God most clearly. They are both different but have lots in common. It is the vastness of them both that helps me grasp His might, His creative power, and His control over all the earth. I need that might to help me conquer sin in my life. I treasure the creative power that helps me find joy in gazing, and I most definitely surrender to His control. With the waves crashing in the background and the grains of sand through my toes I am humbled once again to be at the edge of the ocean. God has a way of revealing to me the weight of his glory. I agree with that glory and feel the weight of His presence taking in this breeze and searching out over His looking glass.
