“Bless the Lord, all you works of His, in all places of His dominion; bless the Lord, O my soul!” (Psalm 103:22).
While humankind can proclaim the Good News of God’s love in a few hundred languages, creation echoes the presence and provision of God with an infinite number of voices. Too often, because of life’s distractions, our eyes and ears do not hear and see the fullness of God’s communication. Our responses become that of the passive pew-dweller; offering a token “Good job, God,” to the fleeting glance of a beautiful sunset just as we might say to the preacher, “Nice sermon,” as we walk out the back door of the church. It’s only as we anticipate and hunger for more that we discover the blessing of hearing and seeing more of God’s creative wonder.
