Beginning this new year of 2016, I will be sharing devotionals written by my mother, Rebecca Y. Windle. Mom is with the Lord now, but for over fifteen years from age 75 to 90, after my father passed away, she wrote devotionals, sharing them by email with her family and friends. Each day I searched my email for the devotional entitled, Our Daily Walk, and looked forward to her musings about the Lord.
God is awesome!
By Rebecca Y. Windle
Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord, my God, you are very great. You
are clothed with splendor and majesty. Ps. l04:1
Isn’t it scary when all of a sudden a pall will settle over the
house and a quick rain comes down over it? Pouring down filling the
ditches and streets and pounding on the windows as if someone had turned
the water hose on them? We turned on T.V. and learned we could possible
be in the path of an on-coming tornado. We grabbed the candles and
huddled in a closet until it passed over.
The velocity of the tornado, the wrath of a hurricane, the rise of a
flood are all visable signs of the awesome power of the Almignty–At
what speed were the mountains created from the vast expanse of waters?
Who could measure the force that stilled the raging seas into placid
streams? How God must have rejoiced when He pronounced our world good.
Another verse to ponder is Ps. 104:24
“How many are Your works, O Lord? In wisdom You made them all; the earth
is full of Your creatures.”
God’s handiwork is seen in the underwater world–We blinked our
eyes, almost blinded by the array of colors–
From a distance came a large blob that glided into our vison , a
stingray with skin flowing like wings–slowed down and circled ,
reviewing the humans who invaded their waters.
We were taking a tour on a glass bottom boat and it certainly left
us in awesome wonder at the marvelous things God made with such precise
The conch eat the plankton, the big fish eat the little fish.Only a
sovereign Creator could form and execute our multi-faced world. Yet,
this Great God cares about each of us, knowing the number of hairs on
our head .

“This is my Father’s world. I rest in the thought of rocks and trees,
of sky and seas, His hands the wonders wrought.”
He has made everything beautiful in its time—-
Ecc. 3:11 NIV
