God of wonders

"There is in many hearts a yearning for the firsthand experience of the presence of God. Many people are tired of religion reduced to social action, group therapy, or theological analysis. They wonder where the wonder went." ~ Robert Raine.

God is ineffable.  And yet I catch a glimpse of God in creation.  When I feel he is distant or unknowable I remember that he shows his glory in creation.  Just take time to breathe in gratitude for the beauty of the simple things, like a blade of grass, the clouds, a raindrop.

“Something of God…flows into us from the blue of the sky, the taste of honey, the delicious embrace of water….” ~ C.S. Lewis in ‘Scraps’, St. James’ Magazine.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. ~Psalm 19:1-4

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. ~ Romans 1:20

Our God of wonders.  We were created to be children of wonder.  Take time to look up and see. x

God of Wonders ~ Chris Tomlin

Lord of all creation
Of water, earth, and sky
The heavens are Your tabernacle
Glory to the Lord on High

God of wonders, beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy

Lord of heaven and earth...

Early in the morning
I will celebrate the light
And as I stumble through the darkness
I will call Your name by night

God of wonders, beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
The universe declares Your majesty
You are holy, holy
Lord of heaven and earth...

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth...

God of wonders, beyond our galaxy
You are holy, holy
Precious Lord, reveal Your heart to me
