I had the wonderful privilege of visiting Yosemite National Park this past week. There is an inadequacy of words to describe the beauty, the vastness, and the grandeur of it all. The most surprising element that I experienced, was the wonder of being small.
From any view, either down in the valley or atop Glacier Point, I realized my smallness and the infinite bigness of God. His handiwork truly declared His glory! I breathed deeply and was struck by His greatness. He is so much bigger than that which He has created.
Trees, birds, squirrels, lizards, rushing waters, roaring water falls, placid lakes, jagged peaks; all spoke of him and not of me. What a cleansing place.
Job 12:7-10New American Standard Bible (NASB)
7 “But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you;

8 “Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you;
And let the fish of the sea declare to you.
