“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
Most of us will remember Joni Collins iconic song, Both Sides Now, with the chorus:
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now;
From up and down and still somehow…
Its clouds’ illusions I recall, I really don’t know clouds at all.
My Mom spent hours lying on blankets with us simply looking up at the sky to find animal shapes in the clouds. Like most children, when the sun would stand behind the clouds we would wonder if Heaven was hiding there? Clouds… one of nature’s indicators; off a list too long to write down… the list of unexplainable, unduplicatable, natural wonders!
The writer of Romans speaks of nature as the reflection of “God’s invisible qualities.” Yet, scientists of all fields spend unfathomable hours and dollars seeking ways to refute that there IS a Creator. Have you ever wondered why humans continually seek reasons, answers, and methods instead of simply trusting in God?
The Garden of Eden must have been unspeakably beautiful; nature perfected ~ no weeds, no pollen, no dying vegetation. Yet, humanity could not accept the power in perfection of God and simply rest in His presence. This morning I woke up with worldly worries on my mind. I must ask myself, WHY? The beauty around me reflects ETERNAL POWER and DIVINE NATURE; the Creator of All is caring for His children… including me!!
Thank You for Your love so true,
Thank You for the skies so blue,
Thank You for the birds that sing,
Thank You, Lord, for everything!
