I went for a walk today, in the woods, to get away from schoolwork for a moment. I thought I was alone.
As I walked along the path that was covered in leaves, I realized I was not alone.
I looked to my left and saw rows of trees…
As I walked a little further, and looked to my left, I was overtaken with beauty of the sun shining through the trees. It was so Majestic.
A few more steps, and I saw this rock next to a massive tree. I remembered a verse I read once… “He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the mud; And He set my feet on a rock, making my footsteps firm” (Psalms 40:2).
So… I stood on it.
For some reason, I looked up. I saw a pine cone where it did not belong.
I chose this trail for my hike today because I love watching the water flow over these rocks. For some reason this place brings me peace.
Today, it reminded me that even if we are silent, even if we don’t praise God, “the stones would cry out” (Luke 19:40).
