Inspired by God's Canvas

You never know what miracles you'll discover when you take a moment to look up, writes guest blogger Daniel Kessel.

Pictures of beautiful sunsets found on Instagram under #godscanvas

Today’s guest blogger is Mysterious Ways assistant editor Daniel Kessel.

Four days into the month and February has already shown itself to be just as chilly and snowy as January. Each morning I strap on my gloves and dream of a return trip to sunny San Diego–or at least a dry city sidewalk.

Last week, though, a photograph on the Mysterious Ways Instagram feed warmed me up. Someone had posted a vivid red-orange sky over a sun-drenched beach–exactly the kind of picture I needed to see. As I glanced at the photo’s comments, one of the hashtags jumped out at me: #godscanvas.

“God’s canvas?” I had to know more. I clicked on the tag, and a grid of stunning photographs filled my screen. Photos of the sun and the colorful morning sky. Fascinating cloud patterns, like the one we later shared on Facebook. Each photo was tagged with #godscanvas, and each one, to my eye, a kind of miracle.

So far, more than 12,000 photographs carry the #godscanvas hashtag on Instagram. When was the last time you looked up and marveled at the sky? Maybe you don’t live near a tropical beach. Maybe it’s foggy outside or, yes, snowing. But you never know what you’ll see when you take a moment to look up.

Why not take a #godscanvas photo of your own today? Share your finds with Mysterious Ways! We’d love to see #godscanvas from your perspective.
