Masterpiece

Honeymoon 011

How amazing it is that the God who formed the heavens and the earth in majestic perfection and wonder would care to listen to his children, like so many specs of dust, and bend ear to hear their cries and thus bear their burden at the cost of his own righteous son. That is a love that is far greater and wider than all the galaxies combined…God, the one and only, romancing a world in the hopes of sharing his love.

One cannot fully experience the grandiose of nature without emotion, it demands emotion because God intended it so. Being a God of deep emotion he created a masterpiece to demonstrate it, a window into his vast goodness, love, wisdom, might, and skillfulness, as well as his care…the beautiful displays around you are all controlled and cared for by his own hands. See the birds in their nests? Do they appear weary or uncertain of tomorrow? Or the grass of the fields, do they grow by their own strength? Does not our God unleash the rains and unveil the sun so that they are encouraged to sprout forth and rise from the barren ground? What of the seasons and the very ocean, full of great power, yet gentle as its waves lick your toes before being pulled back to its rightful boundaries? No, one cannot look upon all of this without emotion, because every facet of it was carved with it, like a passionate artist wanting to incorporate his very being into his work, so God has done so in creating nature, and in creating his children.

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.” (John 12:7-10)
