Nature Walks and Growing Closer to God...

Hello sweet friends. I've been thinking a lot here lately of what God has in store for me and what He really wants for me. This world that we live in is so fast moving and if we're not careful it can sweep us up and away in all it's frenzy. That got me to thinking a while back on how to slow it all down and find peace. I began to really think hard about God's creation and how it all started. Do you remember?

God created us and set us right down in the middle of a lush forest, with a garden right in it's center. He could have placed us anywhere, in a little house, or a cold dark cave, but He chose a forest filled with lush green, surrounded by all the creatures he'd made for us to enjoy and care for. I truly believe that that means something and if we really want to find peace and restoration, we needn't look any farther than the woods.

I'm not talking about a little trail at your favorite park or a concrete path, no, no, no, what I'm talking about is getting deep into the woods way off the beaten path. Dirt underneath your feet on a winding trail where you are engulfed in a sea of green. This my friend is where you'll find renewal.

If heading into the woods all alone gives you the heebie jeebies, I hear ya sista, here's my little secret. Take the husband and kiddos along too, but here's the key, send them waaaaaay ahead so that you'll feel completely alone but if a bear were to cross your path, the family could still hear your blood curdling screams- ha. Seriously, this is exactly how I accomplish being alone. You may be a way braver soul than I and not mind heading into the woods alone- you go girl.

Whatever your method, get off the beaten path as often as possible, get deep into those woods and watch your spirit be lifted and experience God's renewal in your life.
