Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/12/15

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Shaver Lake, CAHe makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside [still] waters,  he refreshes my soul.   (Psalms 23:1-3)

In the rush of the world and daily life, it is easy to get lost in all the activity and noise. It can be difficult not to be overwhelmed, and to keep close to the Lord and not lose sight of what is actually important. Our soul can become strained and weary with all the hubbub and hassle around us; the weariness can seem to soak into our bones and drag on us like an anchor.

Yet that is when we need to be listening to the Lord, for He calls to us; He calls us to His creation, for in it He has created such beauty and such peace that just being in the presence of His wondrous creation and soaking in the beauty and majesty of mountains or meadows, lakes or streams, forests or seacoasts can refresh and restore our soul. We need at times to get away to where we can rest under the expanse of stars and sky and breath deep its beauty.

May the majesty of the Lord’s creation refresh your soul.
