The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

Psalms 19:1  “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” The other morning, I went on a walk before starting my work for the day. It was a gorgeous morning, a bit cooler than it had been, yet sunny.  I came back in and was making a cup of coffee in my kitchen when I heard my balcony door fly open. Surprised, I went to the living room to see the door wide open, rain falling, and a gorgeous rainbow straddling the Atlanta downtown skyline. It was as if the Lord said, “Come quickly. See what I have to offer you.” These can be hard days. We mourn the loss of our sense of normalcy, the familiar daily connections that have been interrupted. We confess that we struggle in fear of an uncertain future in these strange times, a season of unknowing and doubt. We ask your forgiveness, O Lord, when we fail to put our faith in you, when we fail to see the good that is still around us, when we fail to acknowledge You and delight in Your presence. I thank
