CLOUDS + GOD


I've fallen back into love with the clouds. I was always in love with them, but these days I've looked at them with new eyes and have found a deeper love.

They say, "Look up, things will get better." 

So I roll my eyes, tilt my head upwards, and look up into the sky. I'm literally looking up. I see shades of blue, gray, white, and sometimes yellow and orange. I lose myself looking at the sky's composition. I don't have many thoughts when I look up- just feelings of hope and peace and of tranquillity and optimism. 

God is here with me in this moment. He is watching over me and walking with me throughout my day. The clouds remind me of Him because He is every feeling the clouds give me and more. Maybe this is why I have fallen into a more profound love with the clouds because I am learning to love God more deeply.

I say, "They will."

  5. Yes, looking at the sky and clouds is amazing! It's so powerful that God uses simple things in nature to draw us to Himself. I also like how you said you're learning to love God more deeply - that's been my experience too. Sometimes I feel bad because I don't have as deep a love for God as others, but we're all still learning, and the more we learn of Him, the more we love Him. Thanks for this post, Vanessa. It was really nice to read. xx

  7. I think it's marvelous when we look around at creation, and instead of just seeing things, we see God's handiwork, His art. And clouds are an amazing part of that! Funny how they are almost always present, but only rarely do we really notice them.

    This is beautiful, Vanessa.

    1. You bring up such a wonderful point. If we looked around more we'd probably have more faith in everything too. God's art. I like that. Thanks for reading<3
