Yesterday’s post was #747. I thought it was appropriate that I fly high today.
I caught this beautiful glimpse of sky a couple of days ago.
Isn’t that a hopeful picture? Doesn’t it suggest that something is behind the scenes? Psalm 19:1-6 begins, “The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship . . . their message has gone throughout the earth.”
Although I tend to be drawn to “heights” — great mountain scenery, Montana’s “Big Sky,” scriptures and songs that have God “high above,” etc. — I suspect that this kind of talk is over-indulged in. It’s probably not a bad idea to suggest to a child that God is “up there,” but as one matures, we should grow to know that God is not only “up there” but everywhere, right?
Still, if He didn’t want me thinking about Him when I see a beautiful sky, He shouldn’t have originated the rainbow … or lightning … or clouds … or the sun…. :-)
Eyes To the Sky (vs. 1 and chorus)
Eyes to the sky, my spirit flies. I breathe the air.
Sun’s warming gleam, cool mountain stream–You’re everywhere!
Fragrance of pine. Green hills enshrine
The One Who made it all.
Montana, land of the Sky!
Montana, who can deny
That it’s the hand of the Creator,
That He’s the Originator
Of all that we see?
