Let Heaven and Nature Sing.....

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth. Psalm 19:1-6
Many times I pray on the way to work, but this morning was different. I started out praying but as I prayed I felt like I had to lift my voice, so I did. I cried out for my family, my friends, and then I just lifted my voice in praise to the Lord.......Sometimes a quiet prayer just doesn't get it. I had my own min-revival there in the car. I thought of all that this season means and all that God has done for me and my spirit collided with His Spirit in one voice......How many times do we raise our voices for other things, a shout-out at a sporting event, a "whoop-whoop" for everything under the sun these days. God deserves it more than anyone.
Our very creation does its own version of a shout-out if we open our eyes long enough to see it.
The animals cry and sing just for the joy of singing.......they sing their own praises to the Lord, for they know who created them!

Joy to the World , the Lord is come!
Let earth recieve her King,
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing!

Isaac Watts, 1719

A very Merry Christmas to all.....


  1. Very beautiful post Lori. Yes, all the earth sings out with joy. I do agree, nature prays both in silence and in shouts. I hope that those in the cars around you saw you and joined in your prayers!

  2. My prayer is that they did! Or they just thought I was talking to myself :-) God is great isn't He? Lori
