Practice: Nature

One of the best ways we can practice the presence of God is intentionally choosing to spend time in nature. A three-hour hike can be an AMAZING way to gain soul perspective . . . God is with me.

Pausing to smell the roses. To look at the bugs. To take a deep breath of fresh air and exhale a prayer of thanks. Choosing time in nature, from camping to walking to gardening to a brief pause outdoors, is a powerful way to practice the presence of God.
