For the past two days it has rained relentlesly in my area. You could almost hear the cries of people wondering when the sun was going to come out again. You would think that they would be happy for the break from relentless heat.
As I said my prayer on the way to picking up my daughter, I said thank you for the rain, the wind, the ability to see and feel all that you have created….Wow! Can it get any better?
In the reading from Our Daily Bread today, it focused on Embroidery of Earth. Niagra Falls is not just beautiful but it holds beauty at every corner, even in the words on the plaque that state; “Enter, friends, and view God’s pleasant handiwork, the embroidery of earth.”
Isaiah 41:17-20 speaks of the wonders of God’s creation. We know of the Book of Genesis that reminds us how the earth was created and all that is in it. Isaiah 45:18 for thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
Jeremiah 51:16 when he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth: he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.
God has given us a visual of Him that we sometimes take for granted. Step outside and enjoy the sun, wind, rain and the smell of God’s Wonders! You will be glad you did, because, aren’t you one of them?
