One of the most breathtaking sights in nature is the lilting ballet of thousands of gentle songbirds, as they blend in perfect harmony and dance! Their flawless performance is so glorious that one cannot help but feel God’s presence. (If you go to YouTube and look for Starling murmuration videos, you will see their dance in the sky.)
The same Presence who stood in the sand at the ocean’s edge and orchestrated the mighty, rumbling waves to crash over miles of jagged black rocks; then slow their pace to a halt and bow in honor, at his feet.
You can almost hear God’s voice calling out, saying; “This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt.” Job 38:6.
God, the Author, the Arranger, the Conductor. “For we are God’s Masterpiece…” Ephesians 2:10.
Imagine what it must look like when we are living a life that is “out-of-sync,” with our Creator. Probably like watching a movie where the actor’s lips are not aligned with his dialogue? There is no natural flow. However, if you ask any seasoned musician what is most important when playing in an orchestra; they will answer, “I keep my eyes always on the (Conductor) Lord…” Psalm 16:8. We were designed to live a life that reflects all the beauty of our Creator. Nature is a marvelous teacher. Follow the example of the gentle songbirds. “Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance…”
