Our Creator Speaks Through His Creation

Add a subheadingDo yourself a favor – and immerse yourself in nature. Walk into the woods. Gawk over the intricacy of the countryside. Listen to the birds sing overhead. Feel the cool breeze wash over your skin.

Open your ears to the peaceful sounds of God’s wildlife. Our Creator speaks through his creation; yet, often we are unaware of the soft, gentle words echoed in the forest of his beauty.

Set down your phones. Turn off your WiFi signal. Abandon all the electronic distractions that steal your focus. Sit on a rock in the middle of a rushing stream. Contemplate the Master Artist’s majesty.

Smell in the aroma of freedom all around you. Everything in creation sings in thanksgiving to the One that carefully and thoughtfully designed it.

Your life is a precious gift. Make each day count. Spend your time on what sets your soul on fire. Pray for others in the quiet. Take time to listen to that still small voice that tells you – “This is the way. Walk in it.”

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. – Isaiah 30:21

You Made Something Out of Nothing

somthingThere is so much joy in looking out at the mountains and knowing that these mighty, majestic sturdy structures were not made by man. No, they were fashioned and formed by the hand of the most brilliant sculptor.

Chills – he breathes and brings life to a cavern that is vacant. He touches a stone and it expands, hovering over the streams below. He makes something out of nothing. Creation – is his canvas and we are his handiwork.

Once just flesh temples, God gave us each unique personalities with distinct looks. How do we not just marvel at this miracle? The miracle of life from the hand of a perfect, powerful being that is not just commanding but also loving, meek and mild!

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. – Hebrews 11:3

We must thank God for this precious gift of life – for the beautiful present of his presence in us. He made the mountains, oceans and rivers; but, do not forget, he formed you.

You are thriving. Your heart is pumping because of him. From the womb to the earth, he knows your name and calls you blessed, beloved and chosen. He has taken your life from nothing to something. You are not stained and dirty anymore, you were bought with his ultimate sacrifice.

Walk tall and strong today taking in the majesty of creation and the marvelous work that is you!
