Rain, rain, and then a little more rain….that has been our week so far here in the Houston area. Those of us who live in the “Livable Forest” known as Kingwood, Texas, remember the terrible drought a few years back during which Kingwood lost hundreds of huge trees. Since then David and I have promised never to complain about the rain again. It is a blessing, although many in the area are struggling with the high water.
Rain is an amazing thing. It always makes me think of the extravagantly creative hand of the Lord. He didn’t miss a thing needed by His creation. After all this rain things seem so clean and fresh.
I’m sure you’ve stared into the night sky and wondered at the Lord’s majesty. I have and am reminded of these verses from the Bible:
“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise
because of your enemies to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet; all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your names in all the earth!”
‘Til He Shouts!
