Hello everyone, I am so sorry that it has taken me this long to make another post for you all. But I am back and ready to write! First I would like to give you an update on how I'm doing. If you have read a few of my last posts you will have noted that I have moved from Texas to Missouri. Life is very different in a small town, but it has been a lot of fun! We have a little bit of land, and my dad and I have been hacking through our woods with weed-eaters and saws making trails, it is so beautiful to see God's creation of the different trees, plants and birds that are all around you when you are in the woods. It has been wonderful! This is actually the topic I wanted to write about. I have been surrounded my so much of God's beauty I was inspired to write about some of it. We live in the Ozarks and there are lakes all over the place. Down at the park, there is this bench that I come to sit at and enjoy God's creation. I get to hear all kinds of birds singing and sometimes when it is really sunny, the lake sparkles. Thank God for his creations! Daddy was reading us daily devotions the other night, and he read Genesis Chapter 1. I am going to post some of my favorite verses from the first chapter of the bible: 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Those are some of my favorite creation verses. I have been thanking God for this opportunity to get a closer view of so much of his creation. I am starting to learn more about the names of the different wildlife, trees, birds, bushes and other things that are indigenous to this area. We made
a wonderful discovery last month! We have black raspberry bushes! Dad found them first. He told me where they were and then we picked them together. This picture shows just a few of the ones we found, but there were hundreds! God's creation is all around us, but sometimes we just have to stop and look and know that He is Lord. Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God
It is very sad that some scientists have told us that God didn't create this world or anything in it. Compare that message, to this passage in the Gospel of John: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3 They tell us that evolution is how everything came to be. But there is so much evidence that proves evolution is a lie. God created this world and everything in it so perfectly, and he did it all in only 6 days. There are some, who say that “days now” and “days then” are different. They say that each of those first 6 days were millions of years long. But didn't God say: And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. So, we have one evening
+ one morning = one day. Sounds like 24 hours to me! Genesis 1:5 God created light, dry land, sky, stars, all the fish, all the animals and Adam & Eve in just 6 normal days. Thank you Jesus Christ, for your beautiful creation. Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: Every once in a while we will see a deer in our front yard. They are so pretty, epically the fawns! God has given me the blessing of enjoying his beautiful creation, I am so thankful! “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16 - 18
God Bless you all, and may you see some of God's gorgeous creations today!
