I’m writing this post from the Dolphin Hotel, at Epcot Center, Florida—a tag-along at my Jim’s conference. The first night we were here we watched the Disney Hollywood fireworks from our hotel room. They sparkled and fizzled. We oohed and ahhed.

The second night we watched the Epcot fireworks from the World Showcase—up close and in person. The fireworks sparkled and fizzled, boomed and soared. We oohed and ahhed, cheered and shouted.

Last night we watched the fireworks again from our hotel room. This fireworks display lasted more than two hours and it was spectacular. The sky was bright as daytime. The flashes and booms exploded in the night, filling the entire sky over all the Disney theme parks with fireworks.

This display of lightning and thunder was put on by God.

Living in California we have sunshine most months; rain in a few; snow in mountain regions. Our Yahoo WEATHER ALERTS read: mostly sunny with winds up to 20 mph.

Hold on to your sun bonnet.

Last night we were treated to an example of God’s power and majesty in nature through the miracle of weather; God’s way to transfer energy, heat and water across this amazing planet. It was a breathtaking reminder of God’s majesty and power; a not-so-subtle reminder that our God is big and we are small.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for reminders that—as master of the universe—you are in charge. Show us more examples today of your awesome glory. Help us worship your power more every day. Amen.

WHAT ABOUT YOU? When was the last time God knocked your socks off with His awesome power?

I saw a thunder, lightning and rain storm while having tagged-along with my husband to meetings in Georgia quite a few years ago. I was glued to the hotel window having never witnessed such a storm before. It was awesome. It was wonderful being warm and dry while experiencing the storm. Thank you Jesus.
