30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 8

How have you seen God’s glory in nature recently?

It is quite possible this response is due to the fact that I live in a town where, if it’s not snowing, it is raining almost every afternoon during the summer. I will say, this works great for someone who forgets to water her lawn about 89% of the time.

Back to the question at hand – where have I seen God in nature recently? I can say the mountains (I see the beautiful range every day) or I can say a beautiful sunset (which will never grow old), but honestly it’s been in the thunderstorms that sweep in during the afternoons and sometimes come back in the middle of the night.

The rumble (or clash) or thunder amidst the lightning strikes is one of my favorite things to sit back and listen to and watch. It’s beautiful and yet terrifying at the same time.

Much like scripture speaks of being in awe of God. Job 37:14-16 says:

“Listen to this, Job;
    stop and consider God’s wonders.
Do you know how God controls the clouds
    and makes his lightning flash?
Do you know how the clouds hang poised,
    those wonders of Him who has perfect knowledge?”

And again in Psalm 19:1: The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.”

How about you?
