God’s Glory

From mountain tops and lakes pristine
I gazed at teeming fields below
Where rivers bent and gently flowed
Felt there You said, “I can be seen”

I walked a beach sat there with birds
Took in the sound of seagulls cries
And eagles soaring as they sighed
Felt there You said, “I can be heard”

I sat beneath a gnarly oak
Raised gaze as leaves danced in breeze
My heart engulfed with gentle peace
Felt there You said, “I can be known”  

I walked the city bare and cold
And there, oh GOD, I saw Your face
Your image in the human race  
In fatherless, in young and old.  

Felt there You said, with loving voice
“All mountains, trees, all fowl and beasts
Are nothing when compared with these
With man – my LOVE – my heart – my choice


So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,
are being transformed into the same image 
from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18

    Your thoughts, pictures and insights are timely, inspiring and have great depth. Somewhere in cyber space I had lost your subscription along with several others at the same time (I fixed that). You set the bar high for the rest of us readers in having real life stories as a result of your walk with God. Keep on keeping on!!

    1. Gary, I am glad we are connected again 🙂 … thank you for your words of encouragement…. I fight discouragement so much. I sit down only to see my inabilities of trying to communicate such a big God through these tiny words. Thank you, for YOUR timely kindness.

  4. You’ve given new insight to one of my favorite verses, Heidi: 2 Corinthians 3:18. I can hardly take in that, because of God’s Spirit within us, we reflect his glory even more so than mountains, rivers, birds, and trees. To be HIS choice for this incredible privilege brings tears to my eyes! Thank you, Heidi, for a lovely moment of blessed reflection.

    1. Nancy, thank you for this beautiful encouragement. Is there a better compliment than for someone to say our words brought them to know the Love of God better? I am humbled it did this for you. You are loved, indeed.
