In business, I was blessed to have the opportunity and need to own an aircraft. With the operation we had, it was the only feasible way I could look after business properly.
At the time, I was not walking with God in a personal relationship. I had met Jesus at an early age, confessed my sin, but through the years become engrossed in family, business and all the things the world has to offer. Periodically I would remember God and feel remorse for my way of life, repent and then go my way. In my self-centeredness, I reckon I rationalized that I was OK in my dealings with God. I wasn't!
Living in Amarillo, Texas, I had many opportunities to see sights virtually identical to the picture above. Often I would return home from a day of visiting jobsites in 2 or 3 states. In the spring and summer, the thunderstorms would always form in the afternoon. They were always a significant consideration in flying.
A thunderstorm is one thing any reasonable pilot avoids, if he wants to continue living. They are one of the most awesome functions of God's weather. While most vicious, they are also the most beautiful. Even then, I marveled that only God could create such changing power and beauty.
Today, I strive to walk with God in every step of the way. I am still amazed and awestruck at the things that God has created for us to enjoy and use. Particularly, the things of nature impact me with their magnitude, intricacies and unmatched beauty.
Some say these things of nature "just happened", a critter just crawled out of the sea and then "evolved". I say, "bunk", "hog-wash"!!!
If we believe and study the Bible, which I do, it is plain to understand that everything that exists in the entire universe was created by our Great, Wonderful, All-Knowing, All-Powerful, and Loving God. He administers and oversees all things.
He has proved He is Sovereign and is worthy of all praise, honor and glory. It is to Him and His Son, Jesus, that we dedicate these writings.
If you do not agree with what I have said, I invite you to ask The Master to show you His Truth.
