Each time I fly across America, I see the wonders of God. Yesterday my husband and I flew from Nashville, Tennessee to Lubbock, Texas. It’s amazing how much of the country you can see for 34,000 feet in the air. It has always amazed me to see the color of the earth from the sky.
The clouds covered most of the sky, but even the clouds showed the wonder of God. I don’t know how people can think all of this world happened by chance. It was spoken by God, Genesis, chapter 1. God said the earth and the atmosphere into being. To see the tops of the clouds is amazing. We only see the bottoms of them from earth, but from a plane, we see the tops. They are beautiful.
Before we landed in Lubbock, it looked like the clouds were lying on the ground, but they weren’t. Farmers have implemented irrigation in circles. Under these clouds will be circles, half circles and quarters of green fields. That has so amazed me. The first time I flew west I told my husband about them. I think he thought I had lost all my marbles. This is the first time he had flown west, and he saw them. He was as amazed as I was the first time I saw them.
We are seeing the flat, dry, dusty part of West Texas, and it is beautiful in God’s way. There is no part of God”s world that is not beautiful. It is how you look at it. Even the desert has a purpose. In fact, all of God’s world has a purpose, we have to search for it. God had provided such a wonderful place for us to live and so many times we do not enjoy it. We have to look for the good in everything.
As we landed in Lubbock last night, there was a storm brewing out of our window of the plane. You could see the fingers of the storm coming down and touching the earth. It was amazing! I loved seeing it. That’s what made me thing of the awesomeness of God. King David said it best if Psalm 40;5, “Many, O Lord my God, are your wonderful works which you have done; and your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to you in order; if I could declare and speak of them, O they are more than can be numbered.”
