The sun peeking at a brand new day. A flock of geese honking mist away. Deep breaths of cold clean air. All creation proclaims God’s loving care.
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3
How do I make worship of You fresh and meaningful? How do I make my praise filled with vibrance and zest? How do I make prayer life changing? How do I make Your word jump off the page? I can’t do this.
I come and fall before You in humility for my barren spirit. You have said a broken and contrite heart you will not turn away. Lord, let Your Spirit move and transform me. Even if it is the thousandth time. You can do this. I know You want to do this. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.
You hem me in—behind and before; You have laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me. Psalm 139:6
Warm sunshine The gentle wind Scent of pines Crickets calling out The first leaves of fall come tumbling down A day shouting to God’s glory His mercies are new every morning. How can I not hear and join in the praise?
Though I don’t deserve it, through His grace I can receive it. Though my words can’t describe it, through His Spirit I can walk in it. I can make no promises about my future, other than He will never leave me. His love and goodness woven into my life… forever.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalm 100:4
Clouds blossoming in the blue sky. Do they portend rain? Or are they just dancing before the sun? I don’t know, but it is joy to watch.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Psalm 19:1-4
