Wonders of Our Creator

*This post was first shared on my photography blog Divine Creations Photography 

The  Lord God made everything upon the face of the earth with such thoughtfulness, love and care within a matter of days. Can you believe how such creatures are made knowing that many are out there so different and yet the same to some extent?
I don’t know what type of moth this is but it decided to come rest on my front porch as I take in the Word and spend time with the Lord.

It’s a wonder… isn’t it? So pretty in color and quite interesting to look at up close.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it  was good. Genesis 1:24‭-‬25 NKJV

Now when it comes to us.. we were created in His image. Wow. There’s something to that. Just think about it.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:26‭-‬27 NKJV

The Father had a plan and a purpose with you in mind. To think of all the creatures and beast of earth that reside on land and in the water that He made with such precision, I would like for you to think just how much more work was put in creating us.
He’s a good good Father, Creator and Master Designer. Yes He is!

They (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) love us, they love us, THEY LOVE US! We were known before we were created. When you and I were thought of to be made in Their image there were no leftover ideas scrapped in the corner somewhere up in heaven to design us. No way!

How you look and how I look are made perfect in Him. Take delight in that. There’s no need for correcting His perfection. You are a work of art placed on this earth that is priceless. So when you look in the mirror today, tell the Lord Thank You for making me to look like You. It doesn’t matter what the world says based on the lies of the enemy. If the animal kingdom could talk, I wonder if they would bother concerning themselves with comparison to one another.

My thoughts for you today is to take in the wonders of God all around you and count it joy that you are one of them! Be blessed and encouraged this day dear hearts.


Morning Dew

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (II Corinthians 12:9, 10 NKJV)

There’s always a lesson to be learned when going through your life journey. Struggle in the mind and body comes and goes. Time passing may even seem as if it will not relent. God sees every tear, every moment that rips the very core of your heart.

Don’t stop now. Keep walking.

Battles are ongoing but the victory has already been won. God already knows the outcome. Wait on His timing! Praise Him while you wait, think on good things of the Lord and where He has already brought you from. You know He’s faithful, right?

Don’t stop now. Keep walking.

You turned my lament into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, so that I can sing to You and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise You forever. (Psalms 30:11, 12 HCSB)

Weeping is temporary but joy is coming in the morning. Wait on the Lord, find peace in chaos, and rest I say in His faithfulness. Our Lord will come through for you. Hold fast to this truth. Wipe your teary eyes and look up…….

The Morning Dew has arrived.

Love, prayers and blessings to every heart and mind on the battlefield. Be encouraged.


Be Still: In the Light of His Presence

“Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:27 NKJV)

God is wonderful and amazing don’t you think? Actually don’t you KNOW?!! The sun goes up and goes down every day. The Creator of the heavens and earth gifts us not only with Life (Christ Jesus) but also with the wonderful things upon this earth that He spoke to be.

I took this raw and unedited picture above a little while ago today as I listened to the weather change course. It’s a rain and ice mixture falling down and it sounds like sand. It started to remind me of the countless granular of sand that our Almighty God placed on the earth. Only He knows exactly how many they are just like He knows the very hairs on our heads and every working cell inside our body. Again….. isn’t that amazing.

On a regular basis, we should ask the Lord to search our hearts. May He open us up and allow light to shine into the innermost parts of our being; of our spirit. We may not want the dark areas of our life to be seen but He sees them for they cannot be hidden. There are also lit areas that benefit our growth as well. Both can be used to lift and encourage another through our sufferings and through our joy.

To sit still and invite the presence of the Lord is a welcomed invitation to Him. There is nothing wrong with having some alone time with God even if it’s in the busyness of your day. Setting aside a more intimate time to dwell in His presence is even greater.

Scripture tells us in James 4:8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

I find this to be true because I have done so many of times.

Through some of the most simplistic ways God will meet you right where you are. Just quiet your spirit and listen.

Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. (Romans 8:27-30 NKJV)

Be still and KNOW that HE is GOD. (Psalm 46:10)

I hope that you enjoy the song just as much as I have. This is one my favorite songs. It really takes me to a place where it’s just me and God. Nothing around me can disturb me. As I lift up my heart, my hands and my voice, I surrender because without Him I am nothing. All that I am and all that I long for is in Christ. Nothing can be better than that.

Love and Blessings,


Are You Smarter, Wiser or Perhaps More Creative Than God? NAWWW…. Who are we kidding?!!


Let’s face it. If a tv show ever existed we would lose hands down, way way down. I mean wayyyy down. We are not smarter than God. We surely cannot outwit Him even if we tried. (remember that it was He and He ALONE who created every thing seen and unseen.)
He is The Man with the Master Plan.
Last night was not unlike any other in my home but it was a great time to experience as my husband, a couple of the kids and myself were watching Animal Planet and the show basically was about life in the ocean. All sorts of living organisms and creatures were shown and talked about. I seemingly cannot find a picture of this fish that I thought was ummm….. ummm not cute. So I’ll opt for this one below. It looks interesting still.

Mola Mola (Sunfish)

Fast Facts

Did you know?
Ocean sunfish can become so infested with skin parasites, they will often invite small fish or even birds to feast on the pesky critters.

Anyway, as the show carried on my mind started thinking about just how smart, wonderful, majestic, and powerful our God is. Who can compare? There is none like Him. Just as we human beings were made with great craftsmanship from the inside out, characteristics and all, the same has been done for life in the ocean as well as the skies. All of the universe for that matter.
I was smiling and thinking to myself “Wow!! God made a diverse amount of sea life that I have yet to see and learn about. He created everything in a matter of days. No one else could ever do that! Ever. My Lord, I just want to give You props. I can’t wait to see You one day. How on earth do I still try to complete tasks or think things through on my own when YOU have all of the answers.
We need praise the Lord just for being Who He says He is. He made us all and we simply cannot live this life without Him. He holds the keys to the world. All these earthly treasures are great to look at, touch and enjoy but nothing stands in comparison to the treasures in heaven. While I look forward to the treasures in heaven, I look most forward to meeting Him. O’ what a day that will be!
I get excited when I have these little moments with the Lord as He shows me pieces of Himself. Living Simply in Abundance fills my soul, fills my heart and mouth with delight to worship, praise and give thanks for all that has been done for me and you.
Let’s take delight in the Lord always. There should never be a dry season or day to not exalt His lordship, love and faithfulness. The water, stars and winds praise Him. We should do it too. He rules. He reigns. He lives forevermore.
Our God is great. Better yet, He’s grand and I am so glad that I have the opportunity each and every day to draw closer to Him to develop a better and intimate relationship.
We have so much to learn from Him! He will always be smarter and wiser. The best we can do is sit, listen, learn and apply.
God bless each and every heart, mind and soul this day as you praise Him. He’s worthy of our lifted voices to glorify and magnify His holy Name.
Here’s a Psalm I read yesterday morning way before I even seen the television show last night. Isn’t God so smart?!! He knew exactly what His plans were with me and I am tickled pink! Here is goes:
Psalm 148
Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord from the heavens;

praise him in the heights!

Praise him, all his angels;

praise him, all his hosts!

Praise him, sun and moon,

praise him, all you shining stars!

Praise him, you highest heavens,

and you waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord!

For he commanded and they were created.

And he established them forever and ever;

he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth,

you great sea creatures and all deeps,

fire and hail, snow and mist,

stormy wind fulfilling his word!

Mountains and all hills,

fruit trees and all cedars!

Beasts and all livestock,

creeping things and flying birds!

Kings of the earth and all peoples,

princes and all rulers of the earth!

Young men and maidens together,

old men and children!

Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for his name alone is exalted;

his majesty is above earth and heaven.

He has raised up a horn for his people,

praise for all his saints,

for the people of Israel who are near to him.

Praise the Lord! (Psalm 148:1-14 ESV)

* May The Lord add a blessing to the reading and hearing of His most holy word. Amen.


Meeting in the Clouds

While I’m not really sure where my recent fascination with clouds came from, I do know that I have always enjoyed looking at them since I was a kid. As of late, I have been going outside taking pictures of the sunsets or any type of cloud formation that I find interesting around the perimeters of my home. Occasionally I will take pictures if I am out with my family and my camera just so happens to tag along. This photography hobby has been keeping me preoccupied and it gives me a broader outlook when I capture God’s creations in still form.

I have noticed that the more I think about creation, it was and is by One source that all this came to be.

God created the heavens and the earth! I enjoy living simply in abundance of His blessings. Truly!!

There are some days that I find myself going to sit outside during the day or as the sun starts to set and have a “meeting in the clouds” with the Lord. I find myself singing or praying while smiling with a heart filled with gladness knowing that I have favor upon my life. What a reason to be thankful….. because He surely did not have to give me anything.

I take the time to converse with the Lord about my day, my thoughts and prayers for others who are in need of Him. Many are laying up in hospitals, some are literally lost due to being kidnapped, children are being forced in sex-trafficking, someone is plotting to take the lives of innocent people for no just cause, a new life has been brought into this world, a lost soul just gave their life to Christ after fighting the desire to live by the ways of this world. So much to think about. So much to be in prayer about. Much to rejoice in as well as times to mourn with others.

We only have one life to live. May we not take it for granted. It can disappear before our very eyes.

PRAYER IS KEY. It is our lifeline of communication with the Lord. It’s a time of communion and fellowship with our Creator.

Will we forsake the glorious ways of our God, his majestic splendor, his love and mercy? How awesome is He?!!

Our God is “the Man with the master plan”. He’s “all that and then some”. You get what I am saying.

Jesus tells us : Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we wear? For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (Matthew 6:30-34 NKJV)

My front porch

So whether it is on your front porch, outside taking a stroll or just sitting still thinking, take some time to thank the Lord for all He has done. Today may not be all that it could be but at least you are still here. You can choose to make the best of it or wallow in pity. Someone has it worse right about now. Someone is on their death-bed and the clock still keeps ticking. When they pass on….. they will never be able to say that they wish they could have done things differently in their life. We all will go through various things in our life time. Storms do not last always. You cannot have a rainbow without the rain.

Make the best of today and live it like there is no tomorrow. God is good. He is faithful and He is present.
