“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth.” ~ Psalm 8:1
These were the words that came to mind as I walked on the shore of Lake Luzern, Switzerland, this morning. Mt. Pilatus rose 6,500 feet, with snow gracing the top and reflected in the lake. God’s artistry is amazing, breathtaking and in a place like this, seems almost like a backdrop in a movie, too good to be true. But true it is. I took a cable car to the top in the afternoon and spotted an Ibis on a ledge near the summit.
1,800 miles to the east lies what little remains of Mariopol, Ukraine, devastated, in ruins because of human greed and hubris. I can’t even begin to imagine the horror, and I imagine that God’s heart is breaking.
When Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus, he said the, “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John3:17. For those of us who follow the Son, our call isn’t just good news for humankind, but for all of creation.
Lord have mercy, Lord give us strength to restore, not to destroy. May I never take for granted your majesty revealed in this world. Give me eyes to see you in all things, and courage to do my part. ~ Anne
