The Texas Floods: Awe Reprise

I was "minded by the sight I saw" on the news concerning the Texas flooding, to recall a portion of the poem Awe that I wrote late in 2013.

If nature so strikes awe in men
That they revere it, even when
It proves itself an unfit king,
Then what of Him who made all things?

Should not the God of nature too
Strike awe in hearts of men like you?
And unlike nature, God does not
Consider us a ‘pale blue dot’

It’s true He wants you to feel small
When you are deep in nature’s thrall
It’s so that you’ll depend on Him
Since power comes not from within.
