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. “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.

  2. ‘…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.

  3. “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.

  4. “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.

  5. “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.

This is truly the magic of God in nature. Thank you. I would love this to be a children’s book.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
