Awesome God Moments!

 "The Heavens declare the GLORY of God; the firmament showeth His handiwork." Ps 19:1

The Monteverde Cloud Forest, Costa Rica was awe-inspiring. I walked in quiet reverance, enthralled at God's creation. Thick vegetation covered the sides of the dirt path. It was like being transported to the Garden of Eden and feeling the breath of God.  Misty silence descended on the tropical flowers that lined the path, like a chapel ready for a wedding.  I couldn't help but whisper, "God You are SO Awesome!" The rainforest canopy covered the path as raindrops began to splash on outstretched leaves. I wanted to linger in this amazing place.
Have you ever had moments like that?  Moments that take your breath away.  Moments that make you want to sing at the top of your lungs, "How great THOU ART!"?

When I see the awesome display of God's majesty, I realize just how much He loves me.  I understand a little bit more, that He is in control. I have more faith to trust His Sovereignty.  I feel His grace.  I think to myself, "If God can create all this, is there anything He can't do?" 

PS 36:5 NIV
"Your Love Oh Lord, reaches to the Heavens, your faithfulness reaches to the skies."

May everything you do and see bring you closer to HIM.-- j.jones

  1. God's beauty is amazing! Sometimes I'm just speechless when I look at nature shots - what he's created and everything is so unique and different but so beautiful as well! :) What a mind to think up all these things

  2. So true Shannon! Makes me speechless too! :)


Psalm 46:1 KJV

"God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble."
