Some people seek out a church or cathedral to come into the presence of God. Although I revere those places and have often felt God’s presence inside of manmade structures, it is in the beauty of His Creation that I come into a place of holy awe.
To stand on a mountaintop and feel so tiny in the vastness of the earth or the universe clearly puts things in perspective for me. “Who is man that thou art mindful of him?” the psalmist asked. And yet the same Creator God who formed the heavens and the earth knows me by name and invites me to commune with Him.
