Friends in Christ Weekly Message
October 27, 2007
Oh, visit the earth,
ask her to join the dance!
Deck her out in spring showers,
fill the God-River with living water.
Paint the wheat fields golden.
Creation was made for this!
Drench the plowed fields,
soak the dirt clods
With rainfall as harrow and rake
bring her to blossom and fruit.
Snow-crown the peaks with splendor,
scatter rose petals down your paths,
All through the wild meadows, rose petals.
Set the hills to dancing,
Dress the canyon walls with live sheep,
a drape of flax across the valleys.
Let them shout, and shout, and shout!
Oh, oh, let them sing!
Psalm 65:9-13 (Message*)
Read this passage through several times. Let the psalmist's rapture fill your heart. His joy in the Lord is so great it can barely be contained.
When you look at how wonderfully God created the world with all its natural beauty, is your heart overwhelmed with praise? Can you imagine nature dancing and singing?
