Bulow Creek, Flagler Beach - "In Wisdom You have Made Them All"



 O LORD, how manifold are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all.
The earth is full of Your possessions--
This great and wide sea,
In which are innumerable teeming things,
Living things both small and great.

Psalm 104:24-25 NIV

Port Crescent State Park, Michigan - "Who Walks on the Wings of the Wind"



O LORD my God, You are very great:
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment,
Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain.

 He lays the beams of His
upper chambers in the waters,
Who makes the clouds His chariot,
Who walks on the wings of the wind,
Who makes His angels spirits,
His ministers a flame of fire.

Psalm 104:1-4 NIV

Creekview Trail, Princess Place Preserve - "You have made Summer and Winter"


 



You broke open the fountain and the flood;

You have prepared the light and the sun,
You have set all the borders of the earth;
You have made summer and winter.

Psalm 74:15-17 NIV

of the Almighty.

Blood Mountain Wilderness - “Better is One Day in your Courts than a Thousand Elsewhere”



Better is one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose walk is blameless.

Psalm 84:10-11

Mackinac Island, Michigan - "Joy Comes in the Morning"


 

Sing praise to the LORD,
  you saints of His,
And give thanks at the
  remembrance of His holy
  name.
For His anger is but for a
  moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a
  night,
But joy comes in the morning.

Psalm 30:4-5 NIV

Port Austin, Lake Huron - "In the Land of the Living"


 I would have lost heart,
unless I had believed
That I would see the
goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.

Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen
your heart;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!

Psalm 27:13-14 NIV

Pike's Peak, Colorado Springs, Colorado - "A Refuge for the Oppressed"



The LORD also will be a 
refuge for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of
trouble.
And those who know Your
name will put their trust
 in You;
For You, LORD, have not
forsaken those who seek
You.

Psalm 

East Bulter Park, St. Augustine Beach - "The Work of Your Fingers"


 When I consider Your
heavens, the work of
Your fingers,
The moon and the stars,
which You have
ordained,
What is man that You are
mindful of him,
And the sone of man that
You visit him?
For You have made him a 
little lower than the
angels,
And You have crowned him
with glory and honor.

Psalm 8:3-5

above the heavens!

Cumberland Sound, Cumberland Island - "The Light of Your Countenance"

 


There are many who say,
"Who will show us any
   good?"
LORD, lift up the light of
   Your countenance upon
   us.
You have put gladness in
   my heart,
More than in the season
   that thier grain and wine
   increased.
I will aboth lie down in
   peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O LORD
   make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4:6-8 NKJV

Cumberland Island State Park - "You, O LORD are a Shield"


LORD, how they have
   increased who trouble
   me!
  Many are they who rise up
   against me,
  Many are they who say of
   me,
"There is no help for him in
    God."

But You, O LORD, are a
   shield for me,
My glory and the One who
   lifts up my head.
I cried to the LORD with my
   voice,
And He heard me from His
   holy hill.

I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD
   sustained me.
I will not be afraid of ten
   thousands of people
Who have set themselves
   against me all round.

Arise, O LORD;
Save me, O my God!
For You have struck all my
   enemies on the
   cheekbone;
You have broken the teeth
   of the ungodly.
Salvation belongs to the
   LORD.
Your blessing is upon Your
   people.                     Selah

Psalm 3 NKJV


Cumberland Island, Georgia - "Planted by the Rivers of Water"

 

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the
   counsel of the
   ungodly,
 Nor stands in the path of
   sinners,
  Nor sits in the seat of the
   scornful;
But his delight is in the 
   law of the LORD,
  And in His law he
   mediates day and
   night.
He shall be like a tree
 Planted by the rivers of
   water,
 That bring forth its fruit
   in its season,
 Whose leaf also shall not
  wither;
And whatever he does shall
   prosper.

Psalm 1:1-3 NKJV


Jekyll Island, Georgia - "Blessed are All Those who put their Trust in Him"


Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain 
   thing?
The kings of the earth set 
   themselves,
And the rulers take 
   counsel together,
Against the LORD and 
   against His Anointed,
   saying, 
"Let us break Their bonds
    in pieces
And cast away Their cords 
   from us."

He who sits in the heavens 
   shall laugh;
The LORD shall hold them 
   in derision,
Then He shall speak to
    them in His wrath,
And distress them in His 
   deep displeasure;
"Yet I have set My King 
On My holy hill of Zion."

"I will declare the decree:
The LORD has said to ME, 
You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.  
Ask of Me, and I will give 
   You 
The nations for Your 
   inheritance,
And the ends of the earth
   for Your possession.
You shall break them with 
   a rod of iron;
You shall dash them in
   pieces like a potter's 
   vessel."

Now therefore, be wise, O
   kings;
Be instructed, you judges of
   the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be
   angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled
   but a little.
Blessed are all those who
   put their trust in Him.

Psalm 2 NKJV
