The beauty of the Lord  

Posted by Tiffany in

"The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distance shores rejoice.
Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
Fire goes before Him and consumes His foes on every side.
His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory."
Psalm 97:1-6

I was so tired out yesterday, and during my break between classes I ended up heading to the library to catch some zzz's. When I got there I decided to do spend time soaking in God's presence instead of sleeping, and it was probably the best decision I made because by the end of that hour, I was feeling so recharged and refreshed. It was so cool to know that even there in the library, He could meet me in such an amazing way.

When I left the library, the sun had already gone down and I was greeted by a gorgeous, delicate crescent moon framed by the vulnerable silhouettes of tree branches against a dark sapphire blue sky. It was so beautiful I couldn't stop smiling. His presence was so strong and everywhere I looked, my heart was just moved by the beauty and glory I saw around me. It was as if I was seeing everything through His eyes the way He had originally intended creation to be. I noticed everything...the way the leaves caught a touch of moonlight, the tiny flowers that carpeted the ground, and even the beautiful faces passing by me, each and every one so unique in its curves and bends. My heart was just singing and I wished so hard that I was in heaven so that I could just stand right there and lift my hands up and worship God, my Creator and Maker.

He is so full of glory and majesty. I pray that my eyes would be opened more to seeing His beauty reflected all around me!!!
