The leaves of the oak tree noisily applaud the arrival of spring.
The pointy touch of pine needles reminds me that You are a God who feels and cares.
Splotches of shade splash the sun-drenched pathway.
What a God You are!
We feel wind and waves, see rocks and wildflowers.
Near and far, hills and valleys, woods and fields litter the landscape.
So many birds, both glorious and plain!
Such vast numbers, yet not a sparrow falls without Your notice.
With fruit and vegetables, herbs and tree bark You provide
Food and medicine in this beautiful, though broken world.
Beyond all this, You give us the gift of laughter to brighten our faces
When we’re tempted to gloom.
You spoke forth all creation as the morning stars sang together,
And You hold them all together by the power of Your Word.
Indeed, what a God You Are!
“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.” (Hebrews 1:3 New International Version)
“What supports its foundations, and who laid its cornerstone as the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy? (Job 38:6-7 New Living Translation)
“What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.” (Matthew 10:29 New Living Translation)
