Did you ever take the time to really look at a critter down there, in the blades of grass?
Did you notice the symmetry? The perfect little legs? Their eyes?
And the flowers? Exact geometric patterns that repeat themselves forever seemingly. Oh, the flowers…
And the sunrises; did you look at any lately?
They are all perfect. Every single day. Whether I see them or not. Whether they are over the ocean or the city. Just perfect.
And the sunrise, it happens over and over again, every single day. Day in and day out, with just enough time difference to let the seasons happen. To let night time come when it needs to. And the morning after an exact amount of minutes all planned out since the Creation.
And what about the stars?
Constellations, masterfully orchestrated.
Perfect, consistent order in nature.
No wonder I crave order.
No wonder I get all discombobulated when my life is chaotic. When my schedule is out of order. When my body is thrown into irregularity. When my mind is all over the place. When my soul has lost its rhythm.
God is a God of order. It’s just that simple. And that confronting. And that powerful.
So, dear Soul, what are you going to do about it?
