Often, people are heard to utter: “God moves in mysterious ways”. Superficially this is true, but its essentially a simplification of a truth long ago divined by the Apostles, that God’s ultimate will and power is beyond our understanding. What we are able to know, or to grasp, is his creation here on Earth, in its endless forms most beautiful. Often our worries are about what God may have in store for us, so we become anxious over things beyond our control, causing us to forget that as our loving creator, God wishes for us to also simply enjoy our being. Worship takes many forms, among them may be counted the simple pleasure of appreciating our natural world. Rather than worry about God’s plans beyond ones comprehension, we may instead focus on serving him within the immediate moment, here, in enjoying the world he has made for us.
And we give praise:
Praise be to our Heavenly Father, from whose hand all creation stems. Infinite is its form and splendor, everlasting is its beauty. Praise be to our Heavenly Father, whose majesty extends beyond our world, and awaits in the Paradise beyond. Amen.
