There is something about the outdoors that brings us closer to God. Maybe it�s a sunrise, a sunset, the first cool breeze of autumn, a dozen ducks diving into your decoys, a fish crushing a topwater plug, whitetail antlers along a sendero, or a strutting tom gobbling a meal. Maybe it�s the awe-inspiring knowledge that the Almighty created all of this. With His hand he created a picturesque marsh full of vibrantly-colored waterfowl, an ocean teeming with a plethora of marine life, and a snow-capped mountaintop bugling with bull elk. Creation is perplexing to some who never leave the concrete jungle of life; however, for those who regularly spend time outdoors, how can it be anything but God?
The devotionals in this book are real-life experiences from an author who has spent countless sunrises and sunsets in God�s great outdoors. It is practical application of God�s principles, shown through the eyes of a sportsman, with beautiful photography to accent each lesson.
At the very least, the devotionals inspire readers to gaze at the outdoors in a Godly way, allowing the Savior to speak through His majestic creations.
