FOR THE BEAUTY OF THIS EARTH




My husband and I just are returning from a week long trip to
Fairbanks, Alaska. We had dreamed of this trip for five years now and feel very blessed to be able to go.

Talk about magnificent scenery! Alaska has it!
Think about the state  you live in. There is something beautiful in
every state. Not every state is like Maine, Florida, Washington, Hawaii,
Arizona, California, Oregon, Utah or Alaska, but all states are God's beautiful
 handiwork.

I have some foreign readers as well and they too are
blessed with lovely countries. All creation is God's. Rivers, streams, minerals in the Earth, vegetation, mountains, birds, fish, animals, sunrises, sunsets, rain, snow, a cool breeze. He did it all. We are not to worship nature and the things He created but we are to give Him thanks. He gave us all this to enjoy and take care of.

You can see and feel God's majesty in the power of a storm or by the
crashing waves of the ocean. You can see his handiwork in a tiny
newborn baby. It says in Psalm 138:13 that "he knit us together in our
mother's womb."

When the April 27,2013 tornado outbreak hit our area I was on my back
porch looking up at the ominous dark clouds moving quickly overhead.
My reaction was not one of fear but I lifted my hands up in prayer and
song telling God how glorious He was. I prayed that the funnels
touching down around us would miss us. They did. God is mighty indeed.
Praise him in the good and the not so good.

Psalm 19:1 says 'The heavens declare the glory of God; and the
firmament shows his handiwork".

If you are having a bad day why not stop what you are doing and make a
list of all the marvelous creations and wonders of God. I doubt you
will stay grumpy much longer. Take time to look around and sing His
praises.

PRAYER: Lord you alone are worthy of our highest praise. You have done
so much for us. First, just thank you that I was born in the first
place. Birth is such a miracle! Thank you for all of your creation. It
is marvelous indeed. In Jesus' name. Amen.
