Good afternoon! Today, we continued our series on the Fingerprints of God!
We’d like you to leave us a comment on what part of creation you love most! Let us know what part of creation just leaves you speechless!
For me, it’s a beautiful sunset, and for Joe, it’s snowflakes!
We read Genesis chapter 1, and it really lays the baseline for creation.
“And God saw that it was good.”
Read the story of creation here!
We read from Job 12 today, and this chapter is just an incredible reminder that God holds the world in His hands. He is powerful and He is faithful even in the midst of trial.
Job 12:10 says:
“In his hand is the life of every creature
and the breath of all mankind.”
If you’d like to read the whole chapter, which I strongly encourage, check it out here!
We focused on two songs today that went along with the theme of creation, and those songs were Indescribable from Chris Tomlin and Overwhelmed from Big Daddy Weave.
When we played Indescribable, I read some of the program notes I wrote when my elementary choir performed this my senior year of High School. Here’s a bit of it…
“Indescribable – adjective – too unusual, extreme, or indefinite to be adequately described. That is a perfect word to describe our perfect God. Indescribable, uncontainable, amazing, all powerful, and all the other adjectives that Chris Tomlin uses in this song make the point that our God is truly amazing.”
Check out the song here!
We also looked at the song Overwhelmed, and the opening lyrics of this song point straight at the glory and majesty of God.
“I see the work of Your Hands
Galaxies spin in a Heavenly dance oh God
All that You are is so overwhelming”
Take a listen to the whole song here!
In animals, we see patterns and we see the work of Gods hand. In a ram, we see the spirals of the horn that grow with age, like the rings in trees that you can count to see how old they are. Check out this article from FaithHub that goes into further detail on this here!
Also, the universe is proclaiming the name of God through its’ vastness and incomprehensibility. Did you know that the Andromeda galaxy is our closest galactic neighbor? It’s roughly 2.5 million light-years away. It’s 140,000 light-years across, but it isn’t bright enough to be seen in the night sky by our eyes. If it were brighter, it would appear six times larger than the full moon!
There was a video I saw a while ago at the Creation Museum, and it talked about how complex and incredible our universe actually is.
I highly encourage you to check this out. It’s a 22-minute video, but it’s well worth your time. Check it out here!
Our word of the day today was very relevant! It was ‘overwhelm‘. [oh-ver-hwelm]
This is a verb and it means:
