God’s Joy Found

There are days the pressure of life feels heavy—more so than normal. On one such day last week, I sought solace in the breathtaking beauty of His sunset.

More and more I find myself turning to God’s wondrous nature to uplift me. I bask in His unending brilliance and marvelous miracles seen in the touch of His hand.

In the comments below, share how you seek God’s peace and joy in the midst of life’s whirlwind.

Psalm 65:5-13

You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness,
O God our Savior,

psalm 65.6
the hope of all the ends of the earth and the farthest seas,

psalm 65.10
who formed the mountains by your power,
having armed yourself with strength,

ocean waves
who stilled the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.
Those living far away fear your wonders ;

sunset on lake
where morning dawns and evening fades
you call forth songs of joy.

fall foilage
You care for the land and water it;

fall foilage
you enrich it abundantly.
The streams of God are filled with water
to provide the people with grain,
for so you have ordained it.

psalm 65.9
You drench its furrows
and level its ridges;
you soften it with showers

corn stalks
and bless its crops.
You crown the year with your bounty,
and your carts overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the desert overflow;
the hills are clothed with gladness.

The meadows are covered with flocks
and the valleys are mantled with grain;

sunset on lake
they shout for joy and sing.

  1. Beautiful, Barb! In times of crisis, I have learned to focus on tiny details in creation — the soft breeze, the green color of the grass and trees, the song of birds. All truly a balm to the soul!
