What takes His breath away?

Do you have a favorite setting or scene in nature that stops you in your tracks and takes your breath away?

  • A bright, sunny day with no clouds in the sky…
  • A sandy beach with waves crashing onto the shore…
  • A forest full of lush, green trees…
  • A humming-bird paused in mid-air…
  • A field full of blooming flowers…
  • A deer drinking from a cool, country stream…
  • A majestic mountain range that seems to roll on forever…

For me, it’s the sun setting over a beach.

The picture above was taken a few years back when our family got the chance to tent camp on the beach of Lake Michigan. There is nothing in the world like going to sleep and waking up to the sound of waves hitting the shore.

Do you know what it is that stops God in His tracks and takes His breath away?

You and me!

Revisit the creation story. Every time God brought something new into the picture He declared it to be “good.” But when He brought Adam and Eve into the picture, God declared it to be “very good.”

Regardless of what might be going on in your life or how you feel about yourself – God is looking at you with a sense of awe and wonder!

  1. Me too! Although it was a for a sunrise that I sat for an hour in an effort to get a great shot yesterday morning. A glimpse of God!

    Seems like in the last couple years I have noticed in the Fall when the leaves are changing their colors they just seem…. much clearer and crisper. Whereas before I never gave it another thought. It is hard to explain and may sound weird… but I see God in those trees with all their beauty!!
