all creation calls out
All of creation call out around us to praise the God who created all the beauty around us. All of creation points to a loving God, Jesus Christ who is Maker of all. All creation, the rain, the snow, the mountains, the valleys, the hills filled with flowers all shout His name. In every bee, in every butterfly, in every flower, and sunrise to sunset we can look to our amazing Father in heaven and praise His name for all He has given to us, to our sight, to our touch, to our smell, to make all of our senses wonder. We can look to the night and the moon that lights up the sky along with all the wonder of the stars, or to the day, to warmth of the sun that fills our hearts with peace. He is Ruler, He is Designer, He is the One who should be lifted up in praise daily for all He is giving in the beauty He has created. How amazing to spend the day out on the river, to ski down a mountain, to fly a kite in the open sky, carried by the wind. Although I have not traveled this world, the beauty is still there, wherever we are we can beauty, and I believe one day all that I haven't gotten a chance to see here, God will show me in heaven all the glory He has bestowed upon us, and how much greater will the glory of heaven be! We can hear the birds in the morning, the cows at night, we can see the geese fly over, the wonder of the deer, the wildlife all around us, each season brings forth different sounds, different smells, and different beauty. Not one season is like the other, and each has its own beauty that seems to touch us all in a different way. For me, I love the cool whether, and if I could live in the mountains, with the land covered in snow, I would have a smile upon my face. I love watching the smoke come from the chimney of a warm filled home in the cool air, to see all creation in its winter coats, then as the cold blows away and with warmth of spring comes, it begins all over again. God has given beauty in all around us, we can enjoy His beauty no matter where we are, He can cover us with His peace on a cold day covered in the blankets, snuggled warm beneath with those you love, or He can bring forth laughter on a warm day while your children are swimming in the lake. He gave us so many gifts before our eyes, and we should never take for granit one moment He has given. There is not one moment that goes by that we should not be giving Him praise and glory. For all we have before us is because of Him and Him alone. Today open your eyes to all He has for you, raise your hands in praise, sing out in glory to all He gives. For we can see clearly we are not here by a big bang, just by chance, we are here because we were created by a Great Mighty Maker who loves us, who created us for His glory, so may we stand up today and praise His name, may we thank Him, and may we love Him for all He has given. Genesis 1:1 " In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Isaiah 42:5-7 "This is what the Lord says-He who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it: I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness."
