Silent Delight

Each amazingly different
Each clean, pure and white
From the sky they descend
Silently day and night
Undeterred by fierce storms
They bravely take flight
One of God’s winter gifts
Full of wondrous delight.

MT 2020

Job 37:6  NKJV
For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. 

What If…

What if the diverse beauty we see,
Did not happen by random chance?
And the stars in this vast, grand universe,
Are a beautifully choreographed dance?

What if a Creator truly exists,
Who made you and knows your life story?
And died in the place of the human race,
And rose again to reveal His glory?

What if He offers an eternal choice,
That determines where you’ll live forever?
A place of unspeakable love and shalom,
Which nothing can lessen or sever.

MT 2020

NKJV Psalm 8:3-4

NKJV Psalm 8:3-When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 8:4  What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?

No Place

I’m a billion year old speck of dust,
In random selection I place my trust,
Struck by lightning I’m now animated,
From the ground which I came I’m now liberated.

Out of the void and darkness and muck,
By random chance, by sheer dumb luck,
I now have life by a freak accident,
By Mother Nature not God I’ve been sent.

I dreamed of becoming a fish or a bird,
To say God made me is truly absurd,
I became whatever I wanted to be,
I am the captain and god of my own destiny.

But some fools think there’s a creative mind,
Behind life and creation and all mankind,
Whom they praise and worship and give the glory,
But this God has no place in my creation story.

MT 2018

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Plains Maker

The Great God who spread out Montana’s big sky,
Waters the plains when they’re thirsty and dry,
He taught wild horses to gallop and prance,
And makes prairie grasses break out in dance.

MT 2018

NKJV  Isa 42:5  Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it,

The Hum

The universe hums
A sweet song of praise
Lifting it’s voice
To the Ancient of Days
The heavens above
God’s glory displays
From the myriad stars
To the suns warming rays

MT 2018

NKJV  Psa 19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

 

Beautiful Power

A soft spring breeze
Playing tag in the trees
Creating an elegant ballet,
Countless stars fill the sky
Clouds and thunder roll by
Christ’s beautiful power on display.

MT   2018

NKJV  1Ch 29:11  Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty;

Waves and Whispers

The heavens cannot contain Him,
Nor temples made by man’s hand,
The waves bow in silence before Him,
The wind heeds His call and command.

Trees blossom at His whisper,
Snow falls with a wave of His hand,
He names each star in the heavenly host,
And numbers the seashore sand.
