I’m certainly not one to break out in song, but I did.  Well, not out loud anyway, but I sure was humming like everything.  I’ve heard some say it’s “just a big hole in the ground.”  OK, but to me, it definitely was not that.  To me, it lived up to and beyond its name: The Grand Canyon.  Tina and I recently returned from visiting Leslie and Jake (our daughter and son-in-law) out in California.  We thoroughly enjoyed the places we visited there, but there’s not enough space or time to go into detail.  After flying out, we drove back cross-country, planning a few sight-seeing stops along the way.  And loved it!  Our first stop was the Grand Canyon.  As Tina and I walked up to an observation point, my first look at it, well, no words.  Except the words of the song that jumped into my mind and kept me humming from that first look all the way to sunset 4 hours later and all the different observation points in between.  From the sharp starkness of the canyon in the bright sun to the soft changing colors of the immense walls at sunset, I simply thought about these words by Isaac Watts: “I sing the mighty power of God that made the mountains rise / That spread the flowing seas abroad and built the lofty skies / I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day / The moon shines full at His command and all the stars obey.”  What a blessed reminder of our Omnipotent God!  But guess what?  You don’t have to stand at the lip of the Grand Canyon to see His power!  It’s evident all around.  Every day.  In so many ways.  It’s just a simple matter of looking for it and acknowledging it.  So that’s our challenge for today.  Look around.  See God.  See Him in His power, grace, love, and provision.  He’s there, you know, always there.  Then when you see Him, sing!  Or at least hum to yourself!
