Looking, Listening And Learning

In recent weeks I have done alot of this. In my alone time as I've looked out my window, many little things of God's creation are brought to my attention. My feelings and thoughts are numerous as I stop and look...and listen to Him, for the lessons are many that His creation brings to me.

Flowers and birds, trees and clouds, light and shadow, sunshine and rain...they all remind me of His promises and truths, teaching me things I need to know, blessing me with pure joy. Here are some of the scenes seen from my windows during the month of September. Some are not clear because of that reason (taken through the glass and also from a distance).

Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalm 46:10


God Of Heaven

Words and Music by Heather Sorenson
Great Creator, Master of all nature.
Who gives birth to snow from heaven,
Holds the waves at ocean's edge,
Gives the orders to the morning,
Shows each dawn its place to shine?

God of Heaven, God of all the earth and sky.

God of Ages, God who wrote the Book of Time.
Sovereign Ruler, Alpha and Omega.
Saints before, He's guided safely.
History's pages signed by Him.
Author of our days and hours; 
Things to come are held secure.
God of Ages, Alpha and Omega.

God of Power!  God who breaks the darkness.
Righteous Warrior, Champion of His children,
Goes before us into battle;
Good and evil bow to Him,
Those in bondage freed forever,
Victories won at  His command!

God who heals us, God who gives us peace and hope.
God who listens, Carries all our fragile
Dreams and heartaches, wins and failures;
Binds the broken; hides the weak.
New beginnings freely offered;
Who can make us whole again?
God who heals us, God of Power,
God of Ages, God of Heaven,
God of all the earth and sky.

O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalm 136:26)
