Fingerprint Friday - Praise You in this Storm

Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them?

We had the most amazing storm complete with Thunder and Lightening on Monday night. Dad and kids were out and they came home pants soaked to the knees. There was really no way of getting home dry. Here's the sky as the storm started. If you click on it to enlarge it, you can see the rain falling.

This was our street as the family was leaving the swimming pool and "running" to the car to come home.
And as the storm cleared the clouds lightened and we were blessed with an amazing sunset (sorry no picture ~ it was ugly above the roof).

Watching the storm and explaining to the toddler the the thunder was coming from God reminded me of this Casting Crowns song:

Casting Crowns ~ Praise You In This Storm
I was sure by now
That You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

Chorus:
I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
Every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth

I know exactly what you mean, we have some amazing spring storms where I live in N/central TX... I think they're awe-inspiring, well, until the hail hits me on the head or a tornado warning sends me to the bathroom ;)

Love that Casting Crowns song, too!

That looks like a mighty storm. I'm glad He is always with us, even through the storms. What a great song.

Great photos. I remember storms like this from my time in Kansas- powerful, awesome and scary all at the same time.

what a great post! I love sleeping with the window open and a 'small' spring storm. The big ones we get have me hiding in the center closet praying out loud.
My daughter always said thunder was Angels in Heavan bowling when she was young :)

I have sung that song through tears many times. The words are just perfect.
