Whoa nelly, we're in a storm

Right now, it is pouring rain outside like I haven't seen in years. The sky is still near completely dark at almost 8 a.m.

Lightning is like the feverish paparazzi, snapping pictures through my window. The dog won't stop barking from the incessant thunder.

God is putting on quite a display this morning. I always think thunder must reflect an aspect of Him. Like its His voice. And the Bible tells us that even when we witness some of the most incredible acts of His power on this earth, we are only getting a glimpse. I can hardly imagine that what is going on at this moment in the wild and reckless sky is merely a peek through the curtain at the unbelievable things He can do and has done. And will do.

"Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways,
and how small a whisper do we hear of him!
But the thunder of his power who can understand?"

Job 26:14

"At this also my heart trembles
and leaps out of its place.
Keep listening to the thunder of his voice
and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
Under the whole heaven he lets it go,
and his lightning to the corners of the earth.
After it his voice roars;
he thunders with his majestic voice,
and he does not restrain the lightnings when his voice is heard.
God thunders wondrously with his voice;
he does great things that we cannot comprehend."

Job 37:1-5
