Today’s prayer:

Isaiah 42:8 NKJV — I am the LORD, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You, for You are the One and only God. Your ways are right. Your judgement true. You stand in for the helpless and the persecuted. You defend the fatherless and the widow. You bring rain and water the ground. You feed the wild animals and the needy. Your hands are full of good and there is no evil around You. Lord, You deserve all praise, all honor, all glory. For You made the Sun and Moon. You placed the stars and set everything in order. You gave breath to all mankind. Let Your glory be known and Your goodness be revealed. Please let the hearts of the people be drawn to You. Thank You, Lord, for salvation. Thank You for life. I praise You this day, Jesus. Amen.

Wild beauty

The sound was loud.

The air was crisp.

The moment awe inspiring.

We had stopped here, because of need.

Yet, I was surprised to hear the kids had no memory of the place.

So, I decided to take the time and walk them up to the falls.

(Actually, I watched them run up the trail, I walked!)

This photograph is one of the places we stopped.

The falls are huge, and I couldn’t get a really good picture with my phone.

As we walked back down and I listened to the thunder of the water and the comments of awe from the kids it struck me.

God did this.

The only man made thing was the trail and the bridge.

Man only saw the beauty and built a way to share it with others.

God created the wonder.

Man can only stand in awe of the power and admire He’s creation.

Our pastor taught on Psalm 8 yesterday and it is so fitting.

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars,
which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?”
Psalm 8:3-4

What a great God!

He created so much beauty and majesty and yet He loves us even more.

No tree or bird or mountain can say that the very breath of God caused them to have life.

Only mankind.

What an amazing and awesome God!
