I’ve been enjoying exploring the world virtually through a National Geographic program. One that I found recently that I really enjoyed was about the Nordic region. The landscape is beautiful. The seasons are awe-inspiring. And the wildlife is spectacular.
It also portrayed people in various Nordic activities — surfing under the Northern Lights, dogsled racing, and reindeer herding. It was fascinating to see people who live and engage in activities that are completely different than I do. What I found particularly interesting was that I didn’t know these people or had never even thought about these people, but God does know them, and loves them, and happily cares for them. It was a remarkable revelation!
God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.1
I didn’t have to know all the ways — microscopic to infinite — of all the ways that God, divine Love, is caring for creation. God is beholding each one as spiritual, whole, safe, and complete. God isn’t afraid for His creation! God is rejoicing in the success, beauty, and harmony of His creation. It really expanded my sense of God’s love to see that, yes, even all the way up there in this Nordic region, God, divine Love, was and is there caring for and gladly supplying every need. As we yield to this fact, we open ourselves up to this incredible, infinite love that God has for us and feel and experience it more and more.
So, I’m grateful that even though I may not ever travel to various regions of the Earth, our Father-Mother God is there tenderly caring for each creation. What a reason to be in awe and rejoice!
Father-Mother is the name for Deity, which indicates His tender relationship to His spiritual creation.2
