For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it, and the dry land, which his hands have formed.
O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Psalm 95 3-7
I took this picture as my daughter Helen and I came down from the ridge of Lake District fells which runs from Catbells to High Spy.
Our overnight trip to the Lake District at the end of June was an unexpected joy, especially as we were blessed with perfect weather.
I was filled with gratitude for the beauty of our surroundings, for the precious company of my daughter, and for the opportunity to take this special walk together.
The verses from Psalm 95 capture the greatness of a creator God and the wonder of His creation, with a reminder that ‘our’ Earth belongs to Him.
As we follow the call to worship, we are glad of the reassurance that, as our shepherd, He holds us safely in His hand.
These seem apt messages to ponder in the Lake District, with its majestic scenery, calm waters, and peacefully grazing sheep.
