And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. – Genesis 1:3-8

Our God created this! He made this an let us enjoy this beauty. Take a moment and pause, look up from the screen and see what beauty surrounds you. He created this! He created the world we live in, and he created each one of us.
A wonderful book called, “Jesus Calling” had this devotional, “Learn to enjoy life more. Relax, remember that I am God with you. I crafted you with enormous capacity to know Me and enjoy My Presence. When My people wear sour faces and walk through their lives with resigned rigidity, I am displeased. When you walk through a day with childlike delight, savoring every blessing, you proclaim your trust in Me, your ever-present Shepherd. The more fully you can enjoy life. Glorify Me through your pleasure in Me. Thus proclaim My Presence to the watching world.” Look at verses Matthews 1:23 and John 10:10-11
Be in a childlike delight! Run through open fields, lay on the ground an look up at clouds, be still. God calls us to be quiet with him and be still. What a better way then to look out into the world he’s created us to be in. Look up! Now go be with the day and take every opportunity God has granted you with!
