All creation testifies

Isn't it amazing how a walk on the beach (or anywhere else in nature) will speak volumes when we stop and listen. Habakkuk is a book in the Bible that reminds us that just as we should worship God with singing and rejoicing, we should make time to worship God in reverence, humility and awestruck silence. I don't know why I don't do this more often. I am always blessed when I do. Here are some more pictures I took at the beach.
"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea."
Habakkuk 2:14

"... they cry out to the LORD in their trouble,
And He brings them out of their distresses.
He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven."
Psalm 107:28-30

"Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"
Matthew 6:26
"Do you understand how he balances the CLOUDS with wonderful perfection and skill?"
Job 37:16
Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens;
Your faithfulness reaches to the CLOUDS.
Psalm 36:5
"Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the CLOUDS with great power and glory."
Matthew 13:26

"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the CLOUDS to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."
1 Thes 4:17

" How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You."

Psalm 139:17,18

Either your kids are amazingly photogenic or you are one heck of a photographer, or could it be both?

God bless,
