Bread for the Journey

(Photo credit Tara Jakobson)

With the beauty of the changing season and all the brilliant colors of fall, the skies have been incredible. Even though this is my friends picture and not mine, my eyes have seen such skies and I can't help but be in "awesome wonder" of God's creation all around me. We all know life can be very messy at times, and complex beyond our own human comprehension. The truth remains that we have a God that loves and cares for us. Just look around. It is all around us, and witness it with your own eyes. 

How Great Thou Art 
Verse 1:
O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Chorus:
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Verse 2:
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Chorus

Verse 3:
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Chorus

Verse 4:
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"
