Blanket of Clouds

Two weeks ago was one of the most beautiful sky-weeks I have ever seen. One morning, as I was looking up at the sky and it was as if I was looking at the underside of a blanket.
As I was basking in the glorious morning sky, a thought came into my mind. If God is able to cover up the whole earth in clouds, to quench all the earth’s thirst and satisfy its hunger, why do we not trust that he will able to provide for our daily needs?

How come we get so caught up with the details in our lives that we are unable to look at the big picture. A picture of His love and mercy and providing for our needs even as we are needing.

It is so easy to forget all the good things we have been granted; five senses, a family, our health, talents and friends and even as sometimes everything we have is taken away from us – we still have the gift of life, the hope of another day to come and bring us comfort and solace and forgiveness.

Sadly, I was not carrying a camera to capture this moment of total and utter awe at the marvelous display God has put up for us that day, but I did find a photograph I took in 2007  on my way down south to Eilat that conveyed the same feeling.

Psalm 19 speaks of this;

The heavens proclaim the glory of God.

The skies display his craftsmanship.

Day after day they continue to speak;

night after night they make him known.

They speak without a sound or word;

their voice is never heard.

Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,

and their words to all the world.

I pray the knowledge of God’s glory and faithfulness strengthen you today.
