Lord, I Stand in AWE

I'm part of Post A Day 2016;

Habakkuk 3: Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord.

Lord, I stand in awe

This morning, I read Habakkuk’s prayer.

I found myself just taken away in the words I was reading. It beautifully describes God’s wondrous actions.

3 His glory covered the heavens
    and his praise filled the earth.
His splendor was like the sunrise;
    rays flashed from his hand,
    where his power was hidden.

It’s just so poetic.

I’m not one who typically appreciates poetry as much as I should. But, wow it was beautiful.

I could close my eyes and just picture the words illustrated in my mind. The divine sunsets, the roaring thunder, the dazzling stars, the crashing waves…

Living in Hawaii, I have the luxury of being reminded of these magnificent creations every time I step outside. I am an avid hiker and it is impossible to not just be overtaken by the “awe” every time I see that breathtaking ocean view from the top of God’s unimaginably perfectly formed mountains.

I gaze out at the ocean and I am reminded of how small I really am and how BIG God is!  I gaze out at the ocean and I am reminded of how small I really am and how BIG God is!

It leaves me in awe…
