Scrapbook #4: Crags & Clay


1. I love what groups like Gungor, All Sons & Daughters and Rend Collective are doing with music. It’s different. It’s beautiful.

2. One of my cheap thrills is discovering a new song that I absolutely love. Discovered this one this week.

3. It hit me hard. The magnitude of God. I don’t think we pause our lives enough to revel in how big our God is. We often get too stuck on the mountains in our lives, forgetting we have a God who can move them with a single word.

4. Psalm 147. He determines the number of stars and calls each one by name. (v.4) How much more His care for us, His children?

5. I often look out the window to figure out what to wear every other morning. One particular day, the sun’s rays had turned the sky into such a gorgeous backdrop I mentioned it to Him. How beautiful it all looked. Like a compliment made by one creative to another. And a little to my surprise He said “Thank you” with a smile, like a creative receiving a compliment from another.

6. I’d been thinking it was a silly thing to do. Tell God how incredible His own creation looked. Like He doesn’t already know. But He quickly dissuaded me of the notion. He valued the fact that I took the time to not just recognise the beauty of His work but to give Him praise for it. Now, I do it all the time. And I mean it every time.

7. Even the small things, the silly things we do with God, count. He’s not too big for our smallness.

Quite insightful, especially the aspect whereby you say, nothing is too small for God…in sharing about the marvels of His creative works.
