God is higher than anything and anyone, outshining everything you can see in the skies. Who can compare with God, our God, so majestically enthroned, Surveying his magnificent heavens and earth? Psalm 113:4-6 (MSG)
It was interesting reading these verses after a week in London and two long flights "across the pond." There was much about London that was different. You had to look the opposite way when crossing the street (they drive on the left hand side). There were very few public trash cans (they employ street sweepers), and there was no place to write in a tip for your server on the credit card slip.
There was much about London, however, that was the same. Some people were extremely polite and courteous. Some people were very rude. There were good times and trying times. There were things that we enjoyed and some things we didn't enjoy. Wendy and I had moments of exhiliration and moments of utter frustration. God is God, enthroned and reigning over all. Whether you live in the United States or the United Kindgom, we are all just your basic boogerheads in need of God and plodding along on this journey through life.
