The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o’er the landscape; Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together.
A gift for the weary.
God wants to show us the wonder and the majesty of His power. He rejoices in watching us discover the passion and poetry of a sunset and He inhabits our praises when we do.And it’s here, in these not so ordinary moments that we feel the heartbeat of life itself.
When circumstances begin to dim the eyes of our faith, may we draw closer to our Creator and allow Him to reveal all the beauty we may be missing.
After all, He knows where to find
the best view in the house.
Do you feel like you need an escape today? Me too. Let’s close our eyes together and see another picture – the one of our Heavenly Father, with arms wide open, reaching out to us.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
These inspiring images reminded me of some inspiring scriptures which I’ve included here. I hope that they go beyond mere words and pictures. I hope, as you meditate on The Word, your spirit will be lifted up and encouraged. Enjoy!
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:26
