In His Hand


Cave, Cavern, Stalactites, Stalagmites

In His hand are the deep places of the earth;
The heights of the hills are His also. Psalms 95:4

This week we traveled to visit our daughter over 800 miles north and west. By the time we did sight seeing and drove back, we had covered over 2300 miles of America. We were awed by the wind turbines of the plains. We walked down into the earth at the Cave of the Mounds in Wisconsin. We drove through fields of corn and wheat and crossed some of the highest mountains in eastern America. And God was there every mile and step of the way.

Mountain, Smokey, Landscape, National

When the expanse of miles almost brought me to panic, I remember the depths of the earth and the mountain peaks belong to Him, to God the Creator. Rather than panic, I tried to listen to His voice as He called from His word, 

"Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God,
And we are the people of His pasture,
And the sheep of His hand." Psalms 95:6,7

We laid our head in a motel whose walls were covered in pictures of river rocks. For me, they were stones of remembrance. A remembrance of all the good things God has done for me and my family, all the things He has brought us through. Exhausted and filled, we returned home to find everything in order and a happy hound dog to greet us.

How about you? What has God shown you about Himself this week? What memories has He brought to mind? 

Hey Kids:

Have you ever traveled down in a cave or cavern? 

This week we walked down into the Cave of the Mounds in Wisconsin. The guide showed us domes in the ceiling where acid that formed in the waters below had risen to eat out the domes. The guide attempted to explain this happened millions of years ago.

I wondered had she never heard of Noah? Never read Genesis 7:11?


In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
A few years ago I visited the Creation Museum in Kentucky. Now there is a replica of the ark. I haven't yet visited except by technology. You may enjoy an internet visit too. Visit ark .

I've seen fish fossils in caves and coal mines. I've seen upright fossilized tree trunks in a coal mine in Virginia. The more I see of God's creation, the more I know He still confirms His word.
What has God shown you that confirms He is Lord and Creator? 
How did it make you feel? 
Can you draw a picture or write a story to share with a friend or family? Don't forget about us. We'd like to hear from you too!
Blessings,
Gail
