isaiah 52:7


I couldn't help but think of this hymn as I gazed upon the hills and ocean beyond.

I am thankful that MY GOD REIGNS!

Not only in the days of sun, but in the shadows as well.


Our God Reigns

How lovely on the mountains are the feet of Him
Who brings good news, good news;
Announcing peace, proclaiming news of happiness:
Our God reigns, our God reigns!

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!

He had no stately form, He had no majesty
That we should be drawn to Him.
He was despised and we took no account of Him.
Our God reigns, our God reigns!

It was our sin and guilt that bruised and wounded Him.
It was our sin that brought Him down.
When we like sheep had gone astray our Shepherd came
And on His shoulders bore our shame.

Meek as a lamb that's led out to the slaughterhouse,
Dumb as a sheep before its shearer,
His life ran down upon the ground like pouring rain
That we might be born again.

Out from the tomb He came with grace and majesty;
He is alive, He is alive.
God loves us so, see here His hands, His feet, His side
Yes we know, He is alive.

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!

You really have some amazing opportunities for great scenery in Guam. Although it does help that you're a great photographer too. :) Lovely shot!

I really like how this verse (and many others) call the feet of the messenger who brings this good news as beautiful! I never think of feet as beautiful so for me, this really reinforces the fact that God uses the least among us for such great things.

And that is an absolutely gorgeous view! I am always amazed at the beauty God has blessed us with!

I love that song. We used to sing it when I was in High School.

I am thinking and praying for you this morning.
