The Magic of God in Nature

I had just come into the local supermarket to do my weekly shop. As I came through a door thinking about something else that had just happened, something caught my eye. I stopped and looked, and here was a real live tiny little robin sitting on top of a till. It made me stop in my tracks and forget all about my thoughts.

I felt so much childlike joy and amazement watching this beautiful little bird, and I wanted to share it with the world.

I stood and watched as this delicate and joyful little bird made me smile. It felt like it was there just for me. It stood still for a while, then hopped to another till, and stood still again before it hopped to another and flew off. I watched it fly over some aisles, then up to the roof. It was amazing to watch this little bird fly across the store. 

I felt that this beautiful little bird reflected the magic of God and stillness, which reminded me of the stillness that is in me and brought me back to the presence in my body and away from my thoughts.

It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.

Here was this beautiful little bird in the most unexpected of places, just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it. Some people noticed, many people weren’t aware, but this little bird was not bothered, it was just there.

I saw a security man notice it and said to him with such childlike joy “It’s a robin!” The amazing thing was, when he told me that he’d seen it before, I could feel myself getting pulled into the thought of “Will it get out?” and I actually asked him this question.

But as soon as I said those words I could feel I had gone into my head, my body felt tight and tense, so I stopped and came back to me, simply appreciating the magic of God, the gift from heaven and the joy that I felt.

The magic of God is everywhere, even in the most unexpected of places, just there for us to see or feel.

Funnily enough, I never saw the little robin again… 

That was until about a month ago when I was walking through the supermarket and what should fly past my feet, with its wings spread out wide, but my little friend the robin.

Then, upon my return the following week, I felt to go down an aisle, and there on the end was a beautiful collection of china mugs, with the most delicate deer painted on them. As I had a look to feel whether I really wanted one or not, guess what caught my eye…. yep, you guessed it…. the robin. But this time it was not flying around or sitting on a till, here it was on a mug, the only mug at the very end of the shelf that had a beautiful robin painted on it – and yes, I bought it because I knew it was there just for me.

So every day now, when I open the cupboard door, I smile when I see this beautiful robin looking at me. It reminds me of my delicateness and of the magic of God and the playfulness in nature, and in me.

  1. Our bodies are made of divine particles so even if we have no access to nature we can still experience God through connecting with our body.

  2. When we allow it nature can really provide that stop we need sometimes. That butterfly, that ladybug or that birds song that arrives at the right time and allows us to just pause, appreciate and begin again.

  3. What better place for the magic of God to be so gently and delicately presented than in a supermarket, where the majority of shoppers are so preoccupied with and distracted by what they will fill their baskets and stomachs with, to the exclusion of everything else. I would say that that little robin is fulfilling its purpose as part of the divine plan for humanity.

  4. A gorgeous sharing Gyl, the joy and playfulness of God in nature which is all around us when we have eyes to see.

  5. I always smile when I read your delightful blog Gyl. And I can so relate to the joy of you seeing this robin in a most unusual place. In New Zealand we have a beautiful little bird called a Fantail – and yes it does have a fan for a tail – and it sings the most beautiful song. A few weeks ago, I was in my local food market and I suddenly could hear this song and yes, there in the rafters above me was a fantail singing away and flitting from rafter to rafter. A wonderful moment in time to truly appreciate the ‘magic of God’ coming through this tiny little joy-filled bird.

  6. I love birds especially the very small ones and the sound they make. They feel so sensitive and always come close to me when I speak from a deeper connection within myself. They confirm me.

  7. I love that birds have fun with us. The robin didn’t need to be noticed, but when it was it had the opportunity to remind you of our delicateness and playfulness.

  8. I love this magic too. Sometimes seeing a tiny feather or a butterfly appearing as if from nowhere confirms for us that we are part of a huge plan much bigger than us and allowing ourselves to surrender to that is the way.

  9. Nature is a beautiful reflection for us to appreciate and move in, for me it is a powerful reminder of the order of the universe that we are all from.

  10. Divinity is in everything. Our task is simply to remove the layers that shroud our eyes and prevent us from seeing what the heart already knows.

  11. Robin’s have always been the most divine reflection to me, their delicateness and their playfulness. Thank you for that reminder as it has been a while since I have thought about them and perhaps that reflection they offer.

    1. Yes I have not seen one for a while – do they have them in Australia. Reading this blog and thinking of a robin makes me smile 🙂

      1. No Robins, and actually finding a small bird that does not look prehistoric was a great challenge for many months! Then I met some playful little birds on the oval where I walk and I could feel all the playfulness of the Robin in them so clearly no-one is left without the reflection that is needed in the moment. Isn’t the interconnectedness of the world we live within grand?!

  12. So many reminders that we too are a part of the joy of nature and life if we choose to connect with the wisdom of our inner hearts.

  13. We are surrounded by the reflection of God in every moment of the day, not only through nature but equally so in everyone, as we are all the Sons of God. Always calling for us to deepen our connection to who we are, the love we are within and as such to our innate Godliness.

  14. Every time that we are in nature we have the opportunity to experience the magic of God in full,that is if we allow ourselves to feel and see the magic at work.

  15. Love the joy in this blog! Makes me wonder why we choose to then ignore the beauty around us, when there is so much joy that can be felt and lived.

  16. What a beautiful reflection the magic of nature offers us, precious moments to remind us of the natural inner joy and playfulness we hold within and the ability to reflect the truth of who we are.

  17. I love the delicateness of robins and can feel how playful this is and how nature is there to remind us that life does not need to be serious, focused, purposeful, but with a lightness and joy. There is so much around us to support and remind us when we’re open to seeing it.

  18. That was beautiful to read, it reminds us all of the very personal nature of our relationship to God. And, what a beautiful line about the robin “just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence” – how lovely to also live this way, just as we did as kids.

  19. It sometimes takes the shock of unusualness for us to wake from our slumber, to understand that God is with us everywhere, all the time, everyday. It’s just us and our disobedient spirit that tries to shut the cupboard door and thinks somehow that it’s hidden God within. Thank you Gyl.

  20. A robin is one of those birds that can often delight the observer, and stop them in their tracks. It serves its purpose well to be a point of reflection and pause of the beauty we all are.

  21. Like you’re Robin in the supermarket, I was greeted by the chorus of Kookaburras and a load of other tweeting going on. So I went onto the balcony and there was this Kookaburra being harassed by some other birds. I could clearly see the little birds were not happy that it was perched on their tree and they were swooping at it and tweeting at it. The Kookaburra just continued to perch on its branch and it was not budging, no care just happy to be away from the heat of the sun.

    I watched the trees sway in the wind and after a while it quietened down, the birds didn’t tweet or swoop anymore, I think the little birds became tired and it was so beautiful to watch and they all stayed on their tree.

    How many times have we done this, make a noise about something different being introduced into our lives than its part of our rhythm or life? The majesty of God within nature.

  22. Reading this blog has made me appreciate more the little starlings that fly outside my balcony every morning. I used to believe the magic of God will only be present if I lived in house with a garden and yet its right outside my balcony from the second floor.

    This magic is even in a leave that falls from a tree and lands on the road as I’m driving – the magic doesn’t have to be spectacular and big, it can be delicate and personal just for you, if willing to see it.

  23. It’s such a beautiful moment when God catches our eye amongst the constant movement of life. We are brought back to the truth that He is there all along. We just miss this fact with the onslaught of creation.

    1. Yes, I had forgotten to appreciate the magic of those constellations! Those moments that seem like chance but are clearly never chance but reflect to us a body of energy we all live in that nature knows so well and is fully obedient to.

      1. Clearly never chance, and clearly always there when we are open to receiving what’s before our eyes.

  24. The magic of God is a constant reminder that we are a beloved part of the Universe. Every time you open the cupboard to see the robin mug you will be reminded of this truth.

  25. Last week I was in a meeting that was difficult. As I turned to get some papers there was a little white feather so beautifully formed lying beside them, so delicate in it’s nature. It immediately reminded me not to go hard and to appreciate the beauty and magic in everything. There was definitely magic in the meeting that day, no harsh words were uttered and there was a playfulness and consideration that had not been present for some time. This blog reminds me that we are always being supported to be light and to express love, in whatever way we can in whatever circumstance.

    1. That is true. Fairytales make us dream of a better life but the robins of this world show us that love is available at any time.

  26. Gyl I was just reading another blog about nature and eagles and came across your blog which again inspires me and fills me with warmth considering the magic of god that is everywhere.

  27. Totally gorgeous Gyl, a beautiful moment to feel how loved you are, when you get to see the magic of God, reminding you that you are never alone even when shopping.

  28. Gyl, that is beautiful. Thank you for honoring such detailed symbolism in life – which we are constantly reflected by nature.. A simple way of understanding life and you is true symbolism. Nothing is there without a reason, if we see that, our life will start to change.

  29. When I’m caught up in my stuff I completely miss the Magic of God all around me. It’s so beautiful to feel it in my day – so seeing a few very small, pristine white fluffy feathers, a reminder I can reconnect with me and bring a new beginning to my day.

  30. I adore robins, and now realise it is their delicateness and playfulness that I have loved. I hadn’t considered that it could be a reflection of something in me though, I always thought it was a reminder of what I should be. Another layer taken off…many thanks!

  31. I love feeling the natural playfulness and joy from within when connecting with the magic of God in nature even in the most surprising of places.

  32. Reading this blog today made me smile and feel the joy of you being with the robin. When I go into my mind I do not consider that robins can tell me something or that they could present a message to me, but when I can observe and be one with the robin, I am with the all the robin is the representation of. Time disappears and a magical space is opening up, a space where the magic of God can play out.

  33. Nature is such a great reflection that there is something much larger that we belong to and that this reflection is freely available to us shows us how loved we are by God and the universe.

    1. Sure Elizabeth, it is the reflection of the love of God we then can reconnect to, the same love we are made of and are from. That’s why it feels so amazing.

  34. “Then, upon my return the following week, I felt to go down an aisle, and there on the end was a beautiful collection of china mugs, with the most delicate deer painted on them. As I had a look to feel whether I really wanted one or not, guess what caught my eye…. yep, you guessed it…. the robin. But this time it was not flying around or sitting on a till, here it was on a mug, the only mug at the very end of the shelf that had a beautiful robin painted on it – and yes, I bought it because I knew it was there just for me.” How exquisite is this paragraph, it filled me with joy to see the Robin return in such a beautiful way to you Gyl. This is truly the magic of God in nature. Thank you. I would love this to be a children’s book.

  35. “It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.” Often in simplicity is the most intricate, detail of profound love.

  36. “Here was this beautiful little bird in the most unexpected of places, just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it.” I love this passage, because it reminds me of me and where l am and can be in my life right now. It teaches me to observe and not absorb and to dissolve all pictures l may have about life and others and how l think they should be or behave. . No expectations, no conditions, no control, no manipulation, just allowing all to be as is around it.This little robin just is.

  37. ‘…just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it.’This is a wonderful reflection of the magic of God in us and an inspiration to be in this world as who we are without compromise.

  38. “It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.” I love these little moments in nature as they confirm not only the stillness and rhythm of life but that which embraces the very essence of who we are and what a joy that is.
