Springtime! The time of year when the sun shines, flowers bloom, and stark trees put on their best spring finery for us all! But also the time of year when quickly the clouds can slip over the horizon darkening the sky, the lightening can flash, the thunder can crack and rumble, the wind howl, twist and rush, and rain drive those enjoying springtime leisure quickly inside for shelter and safety… Springtime!!
What enters your mind when you experience all that springtime brings? Well, in my Bible reading this morning, these thoughts from Psalm 29 entered my mind…
“Ascribe to the Lord you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength! Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name! Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness! The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders…The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic… The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightening… The voice of the Lord shakes the desert… The voice of the Lord twists the oaks… and in His temple all cry, ‘Glory!’ The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned forever! The Lord gives strength to His people. The Lord blesses His people with peace.” (From Psalm 29 NIV)
Don’t know about you, but in the sights and sounds of Springtime I see and hear the Lord!!
