hello god

I read a Twitter status a couple of weeks ago which just said ‘good morning God’ with a link to a picture.  The picture was of a beautiful sunrise over a beach in America somewhere.  It made me smile.

I’ve recently got back into taking photos since getting a new camera at the end of last year, and going through them I’m staggered at the beauty of God’s creation. From the tiny detail of wild flowers and the intricacies of insects to the wide landscapes that have been created by a hugely imaginative God.  The pictures here were taken while on holiday in Cornwall at the beginning of the month. 

Sometimes we take all of this for granted.  Much goes by unnoticed, partly due to the busyness of life, but also because flowers and insects are so common – we don’t usually give them a second look.

How much more amazing then, is the God that created us – each person being unique.  And what’s incredible is, the same God that made these ‘insignificant’ things, that are only around for a short period of time, is interested in us.

How much more then, do you think God cares about us?  The more I think about that question, the harder I find it to answer.


Matthew 6 v 26-30
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.   Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?  And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?

Points to ponder:

  • When was the last time you took time to appreciate Gods creation?
  • What things help you to get a glimpse of the hugeness of God?
  • How much do you think God loves you?
