Come with Me

Psalm 95:3-5 “For the Lord is the great God, the great king above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.” (NIV)*

Come with Me to the mountain peaks

We’ll watch the eagles soar.

Come ride the waves of a dolphin parade

As the oceans surge and roar.

………………..

Come with Me to a rainforest laden

We’ll find creatures rarely seen.

Come find drink in a desert place

Hidden in prickly canteens.

………………..

Come with Me to the mountain peaks

High above tree tops tall.

There’s perspective there you need to see

The Lord God is over all.

Sometimes, it helps to remember He is Creator. Ultimately, He is in control. All creation is the art of his fingertips. The earth’s interior, the highest mountains, the seas and lands…it all belongs to Him. Sigh.

Go in peace and enjoy what his hands have created.
