Praise

Standing in awe before the majesty of creation is one way to praise the Creator.

My prayer response:

Creator, no words could begin to describe the way I feel standing with the pure force, beauty, and movement of these waterfalls. I’m sure You can sense how the experience leads me to gratitude, amazement, and praise.

Biblical touchstones:

  • Then I turned to see whose voice it was that spoke to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands I saw one like the Son of Man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash across his chest. His head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; his eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and from his mouth came a sharp, two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining with full force. Revelation 1:12-16
  • The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD, over mighty waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. Psalm 29:3-4
  • And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who is seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!”
    And from the throne came a voice saying, “Praise our God,all you God’s servants, and all who fear God, small and great.” Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunder peals, crying out, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Revelation 19:4-6

  • Loved the photos of the Foz do Iguazu. They are beautiful to see and your photos brought back fond memories of my visit to the falls in 2000. Hope all is well with you and Tim in Chartres. Love from the Linton clan.

  • Been enjoying the cruise photos immensely. What synchronicity and so helpful to have the biblical quotes — today I danced in pure joy in the gentle mist and spray of the mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Tonight I watched an electric storm light up the sky and the “smoke that thunders” in black and white beauty. Praise indeed!
