Day 10 Update

Good morning, Godly Gang!

I hope the last two days have treated you well and you didn't miss me, too much. We are alive and well, in Wichita, Kansas. My parents have been quarantined, and so have we. All of us have been well. My parents asked us to come visit them, and after weighing the risks and benefits, we decided to indulge them.

How has your study been? I hope it has been full of God and family. We had a thunderstorm - an honest-to-goodness real thunderstorm - last night and it looks like there will be a repeat, today. If you have never seen a real Kansas thunderstorm, you do not know what you are missing. First the sky goes cobalt. 
 
 

Sometimes, it is green.

The lights slants and is the gorgeous tones of "golden hour" even if it is the first moments of early afternoon.

Then comes the bass booms of the thunder; loud, imposing, and absolutely awe inspiring.

Every time, I can not help but remember the lyrics to an old familiar song:

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art

And when I think of God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow with humble adoration
And then proclaim, my God, how great Thou art

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art

Today's reading ought to remind you of the greatness of our God. You should feel that same awe when you think about God, robing himself in human flesh and allowing His creation to interact with Himself as if He were one of them. What an awesome thought!

To witness the humanity of Jesus is to experience the amazing awe of a God who is both mysterious, yet relatable. I hope this journey will inspire that feeling of a Kansas thunderstorm and a Colorado blizzard, mixed with the inspiration of a mountain top view.

Here are your questions for Day 10.

Grace and peace,

Derin
