I have been trying to focus on keeping the Sabbath holy; setting it apart from the rest of the week. Today was a perfect spring day, and I was not going to fill it up with tasks which distracted me from the Lord.
I decided to sit on the deck and enjoy my Creator through His Creation. I made myself comfortable in my Adirondack chair, leaned my head back, raised my eyes, and there it was: the huge hemlock tree.
It towered so high above me that I could not even see the top. Its height overwhelmed me. How could something grow that tall? If I could sit in the uppermost branches, what would the view be like?
What was God thinking when He made trees? Perhaps He was thinking of creating something that would grow tall enough to reach out its branches toward His throne in Heaven and show His children how to worship Him.
Admiring the tree, I considered the awesome presence of our God. His power cannot even be contained in this massive tree. The thought sent a shiver down my spine. I pictured God standing before me, as tall as the tree. Humbled, unworthy am I. And yet, and YET, could Godís love for me match the volume of that tree? Hardly.
Godís power is awesome. Godís love is awesome. Godís mercy is awesome. Praise His Holy Name!
ďNo one is like you, O Lord;
You are great,
And your name is mighty in power.Ē
(Jer. 10:6, NIV)
