the drive this morning

i drove to church by myself this morning. pete was at avalanche 1 class. anyway, as i was driving i was trying to pray, but i am distracted so easily. i drove out of the canyon and around the "bend" near pineview, and i saw such beautiful scenes. the mountains were covered in fog, as well as the lake, which looked like smoky glass because all the snow had been melted by the rain. immediately i thought, "i need a picture!" by the time i found a spot to pull over the most beautiful was gone, but i managed to snag this,

just driving and looking at the majesty of the mountains made me think of the passage in job. God is talking to job asking many questions, such as "where were you?" i used to think that was harsh of God, but it's true. God knows where the storehouses of snow and ice are (38:22). so today as you drive in the rain, be encouraged that God put it there on purpose, and he was and is there all the time.

"Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding... Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth? Declare, if you know all this."
Job 38:4,18
