Psalm 65:8  The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.

We tend to see what we are looking for, or so the saying goes. What would be different, in a good sort of way, if we saw God in all his majesty and glory all around us? What if we lived in the conscious awareness of his presence? 

Our dogs and I took an early morning walk a couple of days ago and plan to do so again today. The deepening greens of spring wrapped around us. The still waters of the stream we cross reflected the rising sun and the waving reeds. The squirrels ran their errands. The cardinals sang their original songs while the mockingbirds echoed those same tunes and complemented them with the several songs of other singers. It was a concert for the ages. 

Sunlight lingered longer that evening. Although the shining orb passed beyond the horizon, its rays continued their illumination for long moments of brilliance and beauty. The colors of the day softened in the evening glow. The last songs sung by nesting birds welcomed the oncoming evening and prepared hearts and minds for restorative rest. 

What songs of praise come to mind when you read this verse? What stanzas work peace into your soul? What words of exaltation declare your heart’s content? What song says what only a song can say?

There’s the light of morning now. It’s time to sing a God song again. Through the dawning day and into the evening fade, may his praise ever be on our lips.

I will sing my response to God’s presence and activity.

Our Father, what a wonderful world you have created. Your glory is forever on display. Give us eyes to see you. Give us ears to hear you. Give us joyful songs to sing from our hearts as we get lost in wonder, awe, and praise. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
