Last night my husband, Arthur, and I went for a walk on the beach. It was quite cool and there was a breeze, but the magnificent sunset kept our attention upward and not on our bodies. The red skyline, the white sand and the awe inspiring ocean, rough with white capped waves was breathtaking!
I felt so alive and invigorated, but I also felt sad. I felt sad for the people that could observe such beauty and not believe that there is a divine Creator. For a moment, I let myself feel that sadness and I pondered what it would be like to live without God as the central part of my life. I shook off the emptiness I felt, as I pondered that and let my eyes and my heart rise up once again to the beauty I know could not be created by man, and certainly not by a big bang in space – as many scientists and others believe.
There is too much order in the alignment of the planets and the stars – too many miracles in the sky, not to mention the miraculous life on our own planet, for me to believe in accidental creation, or the theory of evolution. At least that’s how I see it, and I’m not alone.
My husband brought to my attention Psalm 19:1-4 (NIV). It reads: “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”
Yes, that is the Truth that I know. Splendid creation by a splendid Creator! I feel so alive and invigorated again! I give praise and thanks to my God, who created all that we see and beyond. Thank You my heavenly Father! Amen!
