clearly the sky reveals God's glory!
plainly it shows what he has done!–Psalm 19:1
It’s not uncommon for my son Justice, to wake up from his
nightly slumber, clapping his hands and grinning at the start of a new day.
From his crib, his baby browns scan his room, his whole face smiles as he
glances from his toys to his pictures and room décor.
Throughout each day, he’s likely to dance with gusto to his favorite Motown hits playing in our home. While running around
outside, he waves to helicopters flying overhead and behaves as a mocking bird
when the crows perch themselves in the tree above, caw-cawing along with them.
He flails his arms with excitement at the sight of food he so enjoys to eat. And he
gets the giggles when it rains.
Recently I said to a friend, “It’s in the simple,
everyday things Justice finds his greatest joy.”
And then it struck me like an Easter bonnet on a church
Are the birds, rain, the sun and moon, all creation, not to mention huge, heavy, metal objects that defy gravity and fly through the sky,
simple? Or could it be I have lost the awe in such wonderful things?
I’ve come to realize it’s officially a sad day the moment I
consider it simple the moon perfectly hanging in space or water falling from
the sky in all shapes and forms.
Job also lost awe in the day-to-day acts of God. Granted,
Job was in a much different situation than in my life, however, Gods response to Job is
a response to us all.
Read what God once upon a time told Job:
you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand.
