When Lightning Strikes

Last night I spent a good couple of hours admiring a gorgeous thunder and lightning storm that encompassed Cedarville. There is seriously nothing better than witnessing a huge bolt of lightning light up the sky a gorgeous purple color. When Lighning strikes, God's name is glorified. Last night has to be a serious highlight of this semester so far. There are few greater things that show the power and might of God than His creation. As I went to bed last night I couldn't help but thank God for how majestic and powerful He is. Thank you God for showing us a manifestation of yourself through the power and beauty of thunder storms. 

As I've been reflecting on this, Psalm 29 came to mind. God showed me this particular psalm on the tops of the mountains in Central Oregon this summer and He revealed it to me again in the middle of some cornfields in Southern Ohio. God is great no matter where I am, and we can't help but praise him and give His name the glory. 

Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,

    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
The voice of the Lord is over the waters;

    the God of glory thunders,
    the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is majestic.
