Clapping Leaves

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Creation sings, dances, hides and at times lunges with a roar. Some Christians see creation as a wall separating them from God. It leads to idolatry, so I must close my eyes. The Psalms, however, draw you out of darkness into light. Through the Psalms, the Lord grabs you by the hand and pulls you into his sun-bathed world with clapping leaves, breaking waters and majestic clouds. You now see the world animated by the King, the Master Artist. Today, worship with your eyes open. “Bless the Lord, O my soul…He makes the clouds His chariot; He walks upon the wings of the wind; He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers” (Psalms‬ ‭104:1, 3b-4‬ ‭NASB‬‬).
