Did You Hear That?

While chatting with a friend in the church parking lot, I noticed a magnificent sky-piece over her shoulder. I asked her to look at the sky and she silently admired it for 45 seconds or so. It looked like a beam of light coming from heaven, as if a way was being made for Jesus’ returning. We didn’t discuss what we saw but I am sure she saw something completely different. Maybe she saw a path going up to heaven… maybe she didn’t even see a path.

Nature and our world around us are God’s masterpieces. He made our surroundings colorful and melodious for a reason – I believe he did it to grab our attention. Sometimes I imagine He has a mega etch-a-sketch that he shakes and makes a new sky patter to grab our attention again. Just as I never become bored with my niece’s art work made especially for me, I never tire of God’s creations. They literally speak to me, rather He speaks to me through them. Look up at the sky today and listen with your heart – He’s talking to you.

And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and year… Gen.1:14

When I was at the desert, I remembered the Lord talking to Moses from the burning bush.

My curiousity drew me nearer to the little plants in the midst of the dry land. I wondered why the camels were eating those stunted bushes.

I pressed one of the blistered-like berries and it was full of liquid.

The Lord takes care of all, the lilies in the field, the birds in the sky and the camels in the desert. And He has extended so much grace to us all.
