Colours in nature, and heaven

Colours cheer me up. When I see those massive yellow, gold, brown, orange, red, and green displays on trees, it makes me happy. Colours give me peace and increase imaginativeness. You need both to write. 

Green. God brought that colour to mind.Since the 1990's I began thinking about what was green. Plants, leaves, and trees. It is the colour of living things and a serene colour too. There are, I believe millions of varieties of hues, tints, and shades of green alone. Easy to relate to are emerald, olive, pistachio, lime and jade.
Other colours also add interest. When I hear a kingfisher calling and see it flying towards me as a little bright blue dart, it makes my day. It is like a reward from God or a blessing from Him, because it is a rare sight.

Before I see a rainbow, I am looking for it most of the time. The right combination of sunlight and rain and there it is. A huge, colourful arch, perfectly made. A covenant from God to me personally. That is how I read it anyway, not just to Noah. It is confirmation of hopes, that they will come about.

Colours in nature free me. Perhaps the world turns my mind into thinking in terms of a grey, world. But God brings me back to the place where the world is full of colour. A grey world is dull but Gods brightly coloured world is a happy place. Colours liberate my thinking. If the world subconsciously stifles me, looking at nature in glorious magnificentcolour restores me.Few are fortunate enough to work outdoors always. I have plenty man-made things around me when I work. Houses, buildings, the usual things you'd expect in a town. So it is with pleasure that I break away from the choking effects of artefacts and surround myself with God's creation which is full of life and vitality, the surprise of the unknown and a lot of peace.When I have the choice, God-made or man-made, God-made is the better option.

God is artist, and creator. He knows how to mix his colours and use them to create endless pictures, and 3 dimensional images for our enjoyment and peace.

There are a few descriptions of heaven that jump out at me. Moses and some others went up the mountain to see God, "And they saw the God of Israel; and there was under his feet as it were a pavement of sapphire stone, like the very heaven for clearness." Exodus 24.10 That colour may have been lapis lazuli. It seems strikingly beautiful and vivid.

About heaven, "The street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass." Revelation 21.21 That is believable, and marvellous.

Round where God sat was "A rainbow that looked like an emerald." Revelation 4.4 Imagine that. On earth we seem to get rainbows of many colours every time. God is so original.



God bless you.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
