Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Here's how to join in.

1. Blog with your interpretation of God's fingerprints. Be sure to link back here so others can find the entire list of participants.
2. After you've posted your blog, sign the MckLinky below. Have fun exploring the other links as well!
Please sign in only if you're participating. Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week.

This was the other night at our new place.
Our kids were playing in the corn field and you can see the huge storm behind them.
From our spot it was stunning. Beautiful.
But for the people under that storm, the hail, heavy rains and flooding were awful.

So often when we're in the middle of a storm we don't see the reason or beauty for it.
But when we're on the other side, the beauty becomes apparent.

If you're in the middle of something terrible just wait. Stand still.
It will pass. On the other side, you'll see the beauty.

"Be still and know that I am God!” Psalm 46:10

That is incredible! I love big thunderheads and when the sun is hitting them like that - just beautiful. Thank you for the reminder to Be Still. I think I need to be reminded of that daily. I love this post. Thank you so much for sharing!

What an amazing picture! You would never dream looking at it that rain and hail and wind were coming down from that beautiful colored sky. Being far away or letting time pass can make all the difference in the world, and God can bring blessings we don't foresee.

One of the best posts i've ever written. I've never looked at it like that. In one direction or one place its something beautiful and when you're in the midst of it- it could be horrible.. but just hang strong and it'll pass. Very beautiful.

Perfect Friday lesson!

What a beautiful photo and an even more beautiful message! Thanks for the reminder. "And it came to pass" is in the Bible a gazillion times. I like to think it is a reminder to us that no matter what we are going through, it will come to pass!

WOWZA! Isn't God good and reminding us of His greatness!
Hugs,

I like your message, intended or not, that sometimes we need to be sensitive to the fact that although we might be blessed to see the beauty of the storm, while safe, others are suffering and enduring a spiritual trial from that very storm.

Great perspective and great photo to show the message.

I'm really glad for you, after last weekend's trials, that you were not tested by this particular storm. We all have our limits and it would seem that God knows that.

Christina said...

That is amazing! Such a good perspective...thank you for those words. I was thinking something pretty similar the other day...about how when you are in the middle of a bad situation you can't see past that; but when you come out on the other side you can appreciate so much more where you are. I don't know if that makes any sense at all. Along the lines of you can't appreciate the mountaintop without having been in the valley.

Amazing picture and very wise words!

littlebird said...

Vanessa {Bloom Right Here!} said...

What a beautiful post - both words and picture! Thank you. I needed that today. I am looking forward to seeing the beauty on the other side!
