God’s Gift of Nature

It’s no secret that nature photography is NOT my forte. I would LOVE to be one of those photographers that could get amazing photos of full moons, lightning strikes, tornadoes (just kidding!) or underwater sea life.

But that isn’t to say I don’t like attempting to be a nature photographer! The photography above is from a bush that is on the corner of our house. It’s mostly green all year, but in the late summer/early fall, these gorgeous flowers bloom from it. It’s like I can ignore that bush all year long, until late August when all of the sudden it is gorgeous with colorful blooms.

It reminds me of 2 Corinthians 5:17- “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old is gone, the new has come!”

I take that bush for granted all year until it is blooming with new life. And I am also guilty of taking God for granted, then when times get hard and things seem overwhelming, THEN I notice. I remember His unfailing love, and instantly, ask for forgiveness to be new again.

Isn’t His faithfulness overwhelming?
