After a ten hour drive, with only one stop for gas, you get a little anxious to stand up and stretch your legs. That long trip where all you see is the interstate highway can become mundane and loathsome. However, when the scenery changes something inside you begins to perk up! Our heart and soul are awakened and we long to breathe in the freshness of the mountain air. The majesty of the mountain terrain draws you to want to explore the surroundings a little closer. The rocky streams, the towering trees, and the overall comfort of the mountain lifestyle causes you to relax. Is this Heaven? If not, Heaven must be pretty close. Though this is a nice treat for me, we can find a little slice of Heaven wherever we are. It’s as easy as tuning in to the Holy Spirit; ask Him to make you aware of the glimpses of Heaven that are around you right now. They are there if you are willing to take a moment to notice. God is so good to us and doesn’t want us to be anxious. Take a moment to relax and refresh, even if it’s just to glance out the window and see the beauty of His creation.
Psa 19:1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Psalms 18:1
