On a cloudy rainy day, you might have a headache. During the winter months when our days are shorter, you might feel blah. On a night when the moon is full and its rays light the darkness, you might feel more restless. On sunny afternoon you may struggle to stay inside. You are drawn out of doors for a walk or to relax in the sun. When you see the first blooms of spring, does something inside you feel hopeful?
These are pretty rudimentary examples, but I encourage you to think about your connection to God’s creation. We don’t live outside of the creation, we are part of it.
I’ve been thinking recently about the connection humans have with the creation. Too many times we don’t consider that we are part of it, the earth and world. Man was created just like the earth, sky, light and darkness. God reached down and formed Adam from the dust of the ground – from the earth, He created Adam. Think about it. Ponder for a moment that our Creator took His creation a step further.
After the seas and the sky, animals and even the garden, God created a man and breathed into Him from the same breath that put air in our atmosphere. Why don’t we consider more often our connection to the creation?
All the best,
