There is nothing quite like a walk around a lake, or stroll through on a mountain trail, to calm our nerves. Perhaps you are one who feels calmed by hearing a majestic sonata or witnessing a powerful painting. Whatever it is, take time today to practice what the Psalmist asked, “to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord” (Psalms 27:4). Where do you most experience God’s beauty? Seek his beauty today, wherever that may be for you.
