God’s Creation

June 24, 2016

Traveling through several different states in the car and having theopportunity to see how wonderful and diverse God’s creation is, makes me appreciate the beauty of His handiwork.
Florida has its beautiful sandy beaches, Tennessee with its many lakes and hills, Kentucky has wonderful grazing land for horses, Ohio with its quaint barns, and New York rural areas with its lush green mountains makes me realize how great God is. He made everything beautiful for us to enjoy. Sometimes we get so busy we forget to look around and take time to appreciate all that God has done for us. Today stop for just a minute and look around at the beauty. Maybe just a small thing like a flower, a butterfly or just watch bees collecting pollen. God is great in the big things He created but He is just as great in the small things.

Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

God is Great

May 1, 2016

One of the great hymns that honors God as the great Creator and His great power is “How Great Thou Art”

Psalms 86:10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.

Verse #1

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder, 

Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; 

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, 

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
Chorus:

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art! 
Verse #2

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander, 

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.

When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur

And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.
Chorus:

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art! 
Verse #3

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing; 

Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in; 

That on a Cross, my burdens gladly bearing, 

He bled and died to take away my sin.
Chorus:

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art! 
Verse #4

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation, 

And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.

Then I shall bow, in humble adoration, 

And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”
Chorus:

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, 

How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Creator

April 15, 2016

Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made by the Great Creator, God himself. As I sit by the bedside of my very ill spouse I can view with wonder how our bodies react to heal themselves. The doctors have even given God the Glory for the resilience in the body. We have seen many small miracles.

Just think, when you cut your finger or maybe break a bone in your arm or leg then a few weeks later everything is back to normal. You may have a scar from the cut or a slight limp from the break but you are back to being able to function normally.

Sin is like that. When we sin and ask forgiveness, God forgives completely, however, there may be a “scar”. A broken marriage leaves children with only one parent in the home, theft may bring jail time, drinking may cause illness or death and on it goes. Are we forgiven? Absolutely! God not only created our wonderful body He made a way to be forgiven of all our sins through trusting in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

For the Beauty of the Earth

November 27, 2015

These words that follow are a hymn written by Folliott Sandford Pierpoint (1835 – 1917) in the mid 1800’s. He looked around and saw the beauty God created and wanted to praise the Creator. We also should be thankful and give praise to our great God and Savior for everything He has given us, so beautifully written in this hymn.

1. For the beauty of the earth, for the glory of the skies, for the love which from our birth over and around us lies; 
Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise. 

2. For the beauty of each hour of the day and of the night, hill and vale, and tree and flower, sun and moon, and stars of light; 

Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise. 

3. For the joy of ear and eye, for the heart and mind’s delight, for the mystic harmony, linking sense to sound and sight; 

Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise. 

4. For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child, friends on earth and friends above, for all gentle thoughts and mild; 

Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise. 

5. For thy church, that evermore lifteth holy hands above, offering up on every shore her pure sacrifice of love; 

Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise. 

6. For thyself, best Gift Divine, to the world so freely given, for that great, great love of thine, peace on earth, and joy in heaven: 

Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.
