The Peaks

I love backpacking.  Putting 50 pounds on my back and heading above timberline for about a 40 – 50 mile trip is my idea of relaxing.  I am blown away by the beauty.  I am in awe of the reality that God has placed every element intentionally.  That each of the snowflakes that created the glaciers and snow fields are different.  How many billions does it take to create a glacier?  How many ways can one make a snowflake?  Apparently there are an infinite number of designs.
What is it that draws you into the heart of God?  Thoughts at DTTB.
Why that level of detail?

Why place this much awesome beauty in a place where 99.9% of the people of the world will never travel?

The level of stunning surprising detail never ceases to leave me breathless.

I can sit there for hours looking at the handcraft of the creator in awe of His might and majesty.
I can sit for hours looking at what God has done...
Then I read Psalm 95:4, “…the peaks of the mountains are His also…” and I am stunned that I am in a place He owns.  Not only does He own it, He calls our attention to it intentionally.

It brings me low.  It causes me to worship.  I crave that time with Him.

What is it that draws your heart to Him?

  1. I would add to this three of my favorites and agree wholeheartedly; no wonder the environment is so rich!

    For behold, He who forms mountains and creates the wind And declares to man what are His thoughts, He who makes dawn into darkness And treads on the high places of the earth, The LORD God of hosts is His name.
    Amos 4:13

    The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my high places.
    Habakkuk 3:19 and Psalm 18:33
