“There is no one like the God of Jeshurun,
who rides across the heavens to help you
and on the clouds in his majesty
Deuteronomy 33: 26
I learned something new today. When I first read this verse I did not know who Jeshurun referenced. So, I looked it up, and now I know that it is a poetic name for Israel. The song below is one of my favorites. It came to mind as I was awed by the beauty of God’s creation while standing at the top of Pikes Peak with my family. It does not surprise me that the song “America the Beautiful” was written about this place. My children were talking as we drove up and back about how close the clouds looked to us from that high of an altitude. The amazing miracle is that each time I pray I touch the sky as the song references. God gives us life, when we lay our plans, dreams, and desires down. I need to remember this more often, and instead of being focused on myself, be open to God’s leading and work in my life.
