Road Trip: Faithful Creator

yellowstone national park

Montana watched in awe as Old Faithful erupted into a night sky clothed in emeralds and amethysts.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:”
Psalm 104:1-3 KJV

The Answer

apple dance

Despite her fears of an uncertain future, June chose to trust God’s path, and continued to find reasons to dance.

“And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.”
Luke 24:51-53 KJV

Voice of Thanksgiving

thanksgiving song

Susanna’s parents traveled from Fort Refuge for a Thanksgiving celebration.

“Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?”
Ruth 3:1 KJV

“That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.”
Psalm 26:7 KJV

Fear and Trembling

charred chapel

Susanna tugged out a quilt scrap from under the burnt timbers of the chapel. How could God allow His temple to be destroyed? How was it that her beloved husband died, while greedy thieves like Frederic Bucannon gloried in pleasure? She wondered at God’s leading. If Montana had told her of all these changes in Orchard Valley, she’d have been sorely tempted to settle in Sacramento.

“They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.

For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.

O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.”
Psalm 74:7, 12, 21 KJV

Waves of Praise

ocean vespers

Although Susanna didn’t feel much like singing, she allowed the warmth of Rosita’s gift to surround her as she listened to believers and nature praise their Creator.

“All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.”
Psalm 66:4 KJV

Worship with Joy

spiritually fed

Susanna savored the different flavors of the community as they rejoiced in God’s leading.

“And the children of Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the rest of the children of the captivity, kept the dedication of this house of God with joy.”
Ezra 6:16 KJV

Proclaiming Him

praise

Gracious mercy.

“And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.”

“And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.”
Exodus 33:19, 20 KJV
