I see you in the vast, blue sky,
The sun, the moon, and stars,
The galaxies and Milky Way,
The planets, Earth, and Mars.
I hear you in the praises sung
By dove and mockingbird.
They sit outside my window
As I read through you Word.
I smell you in the air I breathe,
Among the pines and firs
I praise you with uplifted hands,
And tell you I am yours.
I feel your presence in my life.
You’re everywhere, it’s clear.
From all that you have given me
Your love for me’s most dear.

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.” Malachi 3:8-10 (NKJV)
