Storms in Nature


Storms in Nature

What causes a lightning strike?

What brings thunderstorms?

Lightning flashes when positively

And negatively charged particles interact

Grow large enough to form a giant spark

But thunderstorms form from an unstable air mass

When warm and usually cold air collide


Yet, some sacred texts reveal this is how God speaks

God explodes, brings judgment, and condemns

But how did the ancients believe these were acts of God?

Scientists, prophets, theologians tend to agree

That there must be “cause and effect”

So, they determine God possesses this power

For, the Eternal Spirit exists in nature


Other phenomena are just as revealing -

Tsunamis are sudden movement of the ocean by earthquakes,

Volcanoes are formed from the buoyancy of the magma,

And pressure from absolved gases,

Hurricanes are due to intense low pressure areas

That forms in the summer or fall over warm waters

Some religious, view these eruptions as acts of God


“God, help us to be cognizant of nature’s phenomena.  These manifestations often cause devastations that are based on the mysteries of your omniscience.  So, protect us from these storms of life.”
