I Can See Clearly Now (1)



For a very long time, the fog and mist of false beliefs, prejudices and superstitions about God’s true nature and our own, and of the purpose and meaning of Earth life have been clouding humankind’s vision. Ever more they are now clearing away and a beautiful picture emerges of the bright and sunny future that indeed lies ahead of us and our world. That’s why there is every reason for our hearts and souls to rejoice and sing:

I can see clearly now, the rain has gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone.
All of the bad feelings have disappeared.
Here is the rainbow I’ve been praying for.
It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-shiny day.

Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies.
Look straight ahead, nothing but blue.
I can see clearly now, the rain has gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.
It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-shiny day.

Johnny Nash

Visiting The Niagara Falls




For an excursion of a very special kind, please follow the link below to the:

‘Niagara Falls’

There we stand – or rather in our case – sit in awe and wonder as one small part after another of the beauty and wonder of God’s Creation unfolds before our eyes. Included in this are the ideas for the technological miracles that make it possible for us to go on such splendid journeys and can with equal ease take us to many other marvels of our world. At the top of your screen it says: ‘AirPano’. Click that and take it from there.

What power, glory and might are revealing themselves to us through things like these! And they are only there and appearing before us by the will and power of our Creator. There is no greater power than that. It not only controls our lives down to their smallest details but also brings new Universes, planets and solar systems and everything that dwells in them into being. It also holds them in their places, moves them through space and – when they have outlived their usefulness – destroys them again, at will. That certainly puts our existence on this planet into perspective and one cannot help marvelling at the sheer size and magnificence of life that is almost too great to grasp for our small earthly minds. Then at the latest my soul wants to go down on its knees, join the Swedish Pastor Carl Boberg and sing:


O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made.
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the Universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee.
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

We worship Thee,
We give Thee thanks,
We praise Thee for Thy glory.
In the name of love.

Amen
