The whole earth is FULL of His glory!
“We are without excuse!”
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” -Romans 1:20
NIV 20 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.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles. -Romans 1: 20,21 NIV
His glory is everywhere. We can’t miss it. From the most breathtaking mountainside to the tiniest bud. If we don’t praise His name, then “THE ROCKS WILL CRY OUT HIS GLORY!”
“He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” -Luke 19:40
I’m especially drawn to “the buds.” He has created the most breathtaking creations in the most delicate of petals. In the summer, I have them all over the house. Everyday, I go out and cut.
Truth be told, I actually go on plant hunts all year round, bringing in evergreen, boxwood, holly, and whatever else I can find.
What a reminder of our God’s attention to detail and beauty. It causes my heart to stop and worship, so I gather and display His glory all around me!
I don’t know if my kids ever read my thoughts here, but if any of you are reading…this is the reason your crazy Mom has flowers all over the house! Praise to the Lord:)
I’m especially fond of hydrangeas. I LOVE blue…but, they are hard to grow here in Cincy. (Wells, at least they are for me!) I’m not a very good soil manager!
But, I do have pink!
They don’t last forever of course, but if I paint them, they just might:)
And since I have a bit of trouble growing blue…
