Sights to take your breath away

But how can people call for help if they don’t know who to trust? And how can they know who to trust if they haven’t heard of the One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells them? And how is anyone going to tell them, unless someone is sent to do it? That’s why Scripture exclaims, A sight to take your breath away! Grand processions of people telling all the good things of God! (Romans 10:14-17 MSG)

Even in my sheltered life I have seen many things that have taken my breath away:

The Aurora Borealis 
Rembrandt's The return of the prodigal son
Michelangelo's crouching boy
Sunset from Laguna beach
Ground Zero
The Hermitage 
The many sights of Rome

I still enjoy these moments now as I recount my experiences and emotions to others as the memories come flooding back even many years later.

But nothing can come close to seeing lines and lines of people telling others of the glorious things their God has done for them.

Yet so many of us choose to keep these glories secret to ourselves. Hiding the wonderful acts that God has done for us. Our silence and the acts of our God is a strange thought.
