Since the temperature has dropped a bit, I slipped out on the back deck tonight with a drink and my music to practice for Sunday morning.
If you’re at all like me, when you find yourself in a quiet space outdoors and the sky begins to kaleidoscope in hues of blue, purple and pink with the setting sun, you’re gonna look up and watch the sky at some point.
Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in heaven along
These are the words that floated through my ear buds as I watched a drifting cloud.
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice
Ye lights of evening find a voice
And then I realized fireflies were dancing around me.
Let all things their Creator bless
And worship him in humbleness
Now the rhythms of the cicadas and crickets catch my ear.
Oh, doesn’t your breath catch sometimes with a glimpse of God’s glory?
I know there are times when God feels distant and you think your prayers don’t go past the ceiling. I know that sometimes there are hurts and pain that are mountains high and healing seems or is unreachable this side of eternity.
But the in-between times, when you just glance around and see a bigger picture than the one you usually focus on?
Can you join me? If not right now, then later today, or this week? Stop and look for God’s glory that is shining out around you.
All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
O Praise Him!
Praise! Praise the Father! Praise the Son!
And praise the Spirit, Three-in-One!
O Praise Him.
