Do you hear that?

The steady stream of traffic up and down the street, the music of the birds joyfully welcoming the sun, an airplane overhead, somebody's chickens and one rooster waking up, my sister moving through the house on her way to work, and the steady clicking of my keyboard. This is the symphony of my morning.

Every morning has a symphony, no matter where you go. Camping at the beach there's the steady sound of waves washing onto the sand, in the country there's thousands more animal sounds to wake us up. Mountains conceal streams and waterfalls which add to the singing of the birds, and at Crater Lake, 7000 feet above sea level, the song of the morning was silence and the clicking of a camera.

If you take time to listen, all of creation is pointing to God, praising Him, worshiping Him.

"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music... Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world and all who live in it. Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy."

Seek the Lord today. Try and find Him in a places you wouldn't normally think of. Instead of in a church or a sermon, look for Him in smile from a stranger, a random act of kindness or a cheerful heart. Hebrews 11:6 promises that He rewards those who diligently seek Him. So do it. And let me know what you find!
