Psalm 19: It's Obvious!

Have you seen God lately? Do you hear His message? Can you read His story? I agree with the psalmist—His presence is obvious, His message is spoken loud and clear, and His story is revealed in each new day!

The sky here above Trucksville echoes God’s power. From the peaceful, cerulean expanse of a hot summer day to the ominous rumblings from voluminous thunderclouds, the presence of a Creator and Coordinator are undeniable.

The dainty steps of a doe and buck emerging from the tall grasses, the lumbering gait of a winter-ready black bear trampling the undergrowth, and the agility of the determined little grey squirrel expertly climbing our apple tree, proclaim the brilliance of God’s imagination.

The bluish purple and pearly pink of balloon flowers, the proliferation of basil, parsley, and chocolate mint in my herb garden, and frothy ferns lining our yard speak love and beauty to my soul, especially during this season of physical challenge. God knows I needed the reassurance that He provides abundantly and at just the right time.

Where have you seen Him? What has spoken His message to your heart? How have you heard a bit more of His story?

“We know that God is everywhere; but certainly we feel His presence most when His works are on the grandest scale spread before us; and it is in the unclouded night-sky, where His worlds wheel their silent course, that we read clearest His infinitude, His omnipotence, His omnipresence.” from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë


Update: On the upswing after a few days of fatigue following my second chemotherapy treatment. God is seeing us through. So thankful for all your prayers on my behalf. May God bless each one of you.
