Hunting For God

If He is revealed in His creation, surely we'll find Him here.

We closed the science book that educated us about the world's tiniest frogs and set out for the marsh in search for anything special. I always pray for God to uncover some sort of treasure, whether we're shell-hunting at the ocean or picking wildflowers in a field. We'd come here many times before but not with the intent of looking for frogs. What we found thrilled our hearts and caused us to honour our Creator. In a matter of minutes, we discovered three of those full-grown but tiny frogs. There, in a mucky marsh, with the red-winged blackbird singing above our heads and grasshoppers perching on stiff bullrushes, was our real education. He was there with us that day and our treasure revealed a little more of who He is. He desires to make us wonder over His works and draw us to worship Him. And, it's in the searching that we find Him.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1 

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
O Lord, our Lord how majestic is Your name in all the earth.
Psalm 8:3,4,9

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
Isaiah 55:6
