can do all things. I can do all things for Jesus Christ.
Whether it be through painting or drawing an artwork, writing in my journal or taking a nature walk, I can do all things for the glory of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
~”I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”~Philippians 4:13, KJV~
The Lord is my strength. The Lord gives me the strength that I need to be able to use these mentioned techniques of self-care for the furtherance of His Gospel and glory. The glory of the Lord is very bright indeed!
One of my favorite self-care techniques is taking nature walks. I like to take nature walks not just for exercise, but so that I can glorify the Lord every time that I take a nature walk. Nature walks with the Lord are the most pleasant!
Nature walks with the Lord are the most pleasant!
Whenever I take nature walks, I like to walk in my neighborhood. I will take my phone and listen to Christian music on my phone as I take walks, making circles around and around my neighborhood. I will walk around my neighborhood for about fifteen minutes. I will walk around my neighborhood for thirty minutes. I will walk around my neighborhood for as long as the Holy Spirit of God leads me to walk around my neighborhood.
Whenever I take nature walks around my neighborhood, I like to admire the tall trees and pick up the crisp leaves. I also like to smell the flowers and sit on the green grass and just relax. As I relax, I take a deep breath of fresh air and I smile.
I smile at myself. I smile at the Lord above. I thank Him for blessing me with this nature walk so that I can go on it to glorify Him. I am really thankful to God for blessing me with the nature walk so that He can teach me how to praise Him more and more through nature. Nature is one of the many ways that I praise God.
~” Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy.”~Psalm 96:11-12, ESV~
~”For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”~Isaiah 55:12, ESV~
As I thank God for nature, nature takes a bow to thank God. All of nature who encounters a child of God glorifies God. God is always glorified through nature. He will always receive the glory through nature.
Whenever I end my nature walks, I feel refreshed. I feel so refreshed that I now realize how one that I become with God the Father because of nature. Nature allows me to become one with God the Father. Hallelujah and Amen!
