Niagara – Looking Back

It’s been many years since I left Canada. Although there are many places that I’ve visited that I long to re-visit, there’s one place that remains in my heart. Niagara Falls.

I was a young Christian then and I recall standing by the edge looking at the horseshoe falls and just feeling absolutely amazed. No words could describe that feeling. Standing next to it and hearing the thunderous sound of the falls, feeling the mist on my skin. Seeing how big it is and feeling so small so suddenly. Today, I can only imagine how it must have been like when God spoke the world into existence. Imagine darkness and how the light broke forth at just a command.

Genesis 1:3-4

King James Version (KJV)

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

 I honestly find it more difficult to believe that such beauty could suddenly exist overtime. Nothing anyone can say would convince me that there is a Creator and that Creator is God.

Then today as I look back and replay the sound of the falls in my mind, I can echo Chris Tomlin’s song, “How Great Is Our God”.
