Powerful God

From Friday night until early Saturday morning, we had the most awesome, powerful thunder and lightning storm this city has ever seen. With over 7,015 cloud-to-ground lightning strikes reported, this was a spectacular show. I was in bed staring out the window when the loudest thunder I have ever heard was booming through the night.

Seeing and hearing something as powerful as lightning and thunder really makes me think about the power of God. He is so powerful and always on His throne. He never "steps down" or takes a break from being God. When the weather becomes so fierce and amazing it really shows how God is in control. Nothing is governing it but God. Wow, what an amazing, holy God we serve!

sounds similar to what happened here for the last two nights

of course during the day it was sunny out, but right around 6pm, everything just let loose.

I love thunder...it is the voice of God according to the Psalms! It's probably metaphorical but its still God's thunder and awesome all the way!

We got the storm down here in Yreka as well. It was incredibly humbling.

Amazing. It was about 98 degrees just hours before it hit us. Soli Deo Gloria!
