“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19:1
God is amazing.
Often it is in the things that have no voice that we see Him best.
I saw a sunrise on February 3rd that was remarkable. I know that the pictures I took of it do not do it justice.
I still have that “Thank You” book I started in July and make entries frequently. I have discovered that I have plenty to be thankful for. I don’t have to wait for the amazing sunrise to offer thanks to The Painter of such a scene. Thankful ops are everywhere: light, heat, neighbors, books, shoes, etc., but do I recognize them as gifts to me from Him?
The words of my mouth must declare His glory. I must be pointing out and reflecting on His greatness.
“Lord, I thank You for dazzling me with that sunrise on Wednesday morning. You are indeed the Great Painter on high. I thank You for the blessings, small and large, that You send my way. Forgive me for not seeing/hearing them all. Open my eyes/ears to Your doings. I praise You, Father.”
The God that creates sunrises is the God you want to have a relationship with.
