The SUNDAY TIMES - 8.3.08 - God's Faithfulness


"Every cloud is a flag to your faithfulness"
Do you ever find a phrase that you find to be just plain picturesque? When I read this verse in Psalms, I just had to stop. I could see that and it just made me happy. We don't get a whole lot of clouds around here but when we travel in Oregon, the sky can be filled with big, white fluffy clouds and I am always amazed at the beauty of that. I have to stop and look and try to take pictures. That is exactly what I saw when I read this, God covering the sky with markers of His faithfulness!
This is the entire portion from Psalms 57 from the Message Bible:
9-10 I'm thanking you, God, out loud in the streets,
singing your praises in town and country.
The deeper your love, the higher it goes;
every cloud is a flag to your faithfulness.
11 Soar high in the skies, O God!
Cover the whole earth with your glory!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (aka lbpost)
