Received a new camera for my birthday—still a point and shoot, but higher pixels and greater zoom. Couldn’t wait to try it out, so walk with me.
In worship of the creator of this artistry I turned to Psalm 96 in The Message. I loved the translation so much, I wanted to share the whole thing, but I’ll just start at verse 9. If you have a chance, read the entire chapter.
"Bravo, God, Bravo!
Everyone join the great shout; Encore!
In awe before the beauty, in awe before the might.
Bring gifts and celebrate,
Bow before the beauty of God, Then to your knees—everyone worship!
Get out the message—God Rules!
He put the world on a firm foundation; He treats everyone fair and square.
Let’s hear it from Sky
With Earth joining in,
And a huge round of applause from Sea.
Let Wilderness turn cartwheels,
Animals, come dance,
Put every tree of the forest in the choir—
An extravaganza before God as he comes,
As he comes to set everything right on earth..."
No matter what's happening in your life, take the time for a walk. Notice, the amazing detail in all that God has done. It helps to realize that he watches over our lives with the same attention.
I'm hearing that huge "round of applause from Sea" right now.
