You are Invited

The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground – trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food…. Genesis 2:9

Today you are invited to consider trees.  What do trees say to you about God?  What is your favourite tree?  Why do you enjoy this particular one?  Or maybe you prefer flowers.  Look around you today.  Whatever season of the year it is for you, wherever you are in the world, thank God for the evidence of His creation that you see around you as you look at the trees, shrubs, grass or flowers.   If you can have a close look at a plant.  Examine the leaves, feel the bark or the stem, smell the flowers, look for signs of life if it is winter.  What do you want to say to God about the growing plant world?  What do you hear Him saying to you, teaching you through plants today?

May God bless you with an awareness of the beauty of creation as you look at plants today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
