God's Creation

Read Genesis 1:1-13 - the first three days of creation


Now at last the heavens and earth were successfully completed, with all that they contained.

Genesis 2:1 (TLB)


A few years ago Lorraine Baldus, from Michigan, and her sister took a trip to Alaska. The glory of God's creation was everywhere - the blue ocean, majestic snow-capped mountains, sparkling glaciers, bald eagles, grizzly bears, moose, seals, otters, and whales, just to name a few examples. Lorraine couldn't help but stand in awe, trying to take it all in. She felt lucky to have 10 days to enjoy all the beauty.

When she returned home, Lorraine realized she still had the blessing of God's creation all around her. There were no mountains, glaciers, or oceans where she lives, and no whales, grizzly bears, moose, or seals to be seen. However, there are tall maple trees, breathtaking flowering bushes, chirping birds, and squirrels scattering about. They have sunshine and blue sky as well as thunderstorms and blizzards. Lorraine is able to enjoy the beauty of four distinct seasons each year.

          No matter where we are, God's creation is all around us. Sometimes we take it for granted. We forget to spend time truly seeing what's right in front of us. We don't have to go to new places to be amazed by God's creation. Look around; beauty surrounds us every day.


Prayer: Creator God, help us not to take your creation for granted. Remind us that our world would not exist without your handiwork. May we spend time enjoying the beautyy and never forget to thank you for it; in Jesus' name. Amen.
