The Air I Breathe



#298 

The sky was majestic as we drove the 40 miles home from church yesterday. 
 God was exclaiming through the brilliant forms of the clouds billowing over our piece of the world, 
"Worship Me!"

"Worship My Majesty!"

I reach for my point & shoot camera and worship. 
Photographing is worship.


And as I worship... 

He is Exalted. 
 And the things of this earth...
 my life...
grow strangely dim...

As I worship. 



It's no longer about me.

It's about Him. 

And my deflated lungs are filled. 

He is the air I breathe.

Amen.

We were blessed with some of those giant fluffy clouds this morning - which struck me as a reminder to worship in the everyday (you know, like my drive to work) - God displays his beauty ALWAYS. I just have to open my eyes and see it!

Amen!

My favorite line in your piece was the one that made me giggle inside. Reaching for your "point ans shoot: :) There are so many bloggers who are true photographers - and so many more armed with such high end cameras - we with our point and shoots can feel left out. But look what point as shoots can do - God Bless point and shoots - and those who wield them. Long live the point and shoot!! Hearted this - it is praise. God bless you and yours Denise.
