It is a brand new year, never before has there been a January, 2014. As I think about beginning a new year, I think about the words, ďIn the beginning.Ē The first verse in the bible tells us that, in the beginning, God created the heavens and earth.
Wow, talk about new beginnings. Before God created the world as we know it there was nothing but darkness, no light, no animals, no people, nothing. My mom paints pictures of landscapes, a talent I would love to possess, however, God did not give me art talent. But I can imagine God using a paint brush and art pallet to paint a blue sky with white fluffy clouds then switching to yellow paint to make a big yellow sun. Okay, we all know He didnít use paint and a canvas. But as you look around at all He created; the soft flower petals, the green grass, the animals roaming the earth, and the people in your family, you have to admit He did an awesome job.
Not only did He do an awesome job creating the world, but what is even more amazing is that He did it for you and me to enjoy. So, as you go to and from school, practices, and wherever else you go today, pay attention to all of Godís creations, creations that He made at the very beginning.
Dear Lord, Thank you for creating this beautiful world for me to enjoy and for placing wonderful people in my life who love and take care of me. In Jesusí name, Amen.
