The Beauty of it All!

You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds,
God our Savior,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas,
who formed the mountains by your power,
having armed yourself with strength,
who stilled the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy. Psalm 65:5-8

The beauty that surrounds us in this place is breath-taking. Breath-taking in a way that I pray I never take for granted. There is no doubt as we drive over the mountains or along the coast that there is a God of amazing creativity.

The beauty of it all! As the beauty surrounds, it does not void the hurt and the poverty and the violence and the despair. However, it does make us thankful and in awe of His creation.

‘The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.’ Ezekiel 38:20
