How Great Thou Art- Stuart K Hine

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder

Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed:

Dear Heavenly Father, so often when you hear from me- it’s petitions and pleadings and requests… So today, I just want to stop and praise You for the goodness around me… I’ve blessed to spend a lot of time observing nature recently… Two 80 degrees at the Outer Banks last week did my heart good.. I was just impressed over and over and over again with Your Creation… So much variety.. All working as you designed.. From the Hammerhead Shark who was feasting on the King Mackeral that the guys were catching (look closely at the fish picture- notice there are several “part” fish) to the Cormorants migrating north by the thousands.. I love the opportunity to witness the work of Your fingers..

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze:

It seems like life gets so busy- and I just love when I have chance to experience Your out-of-doors.. That is the best way for me to feel Your Presence, really… Thank you for giving me opportunity to float the river.. Or hike the mountains.. Or just spend time breathing that fresh air.. Quality time with the Creator.

And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, My God, how great Thou art!

And so.. I come to You with my heart full…  Creation reminds me so often of You… Continue to open my eyes to see You around me.. It is hard for me to comprehend- that the same God that fills the earth with such incredible variety- cares for each of His Creations,and still has time to be personally involved in my life.. I’m challenged by the scripture that says that “if the Children don’t Praise the Father- all the rest of Creation will cry out..” So I want to do my part with praise and adoration…. And just be impressed over and over with the Power of You.. “My God how great thou art!!!”

Hallelujah, Kendra
