Is There a God?

Standard

This is the question of many, many hearts.  Is there a God?  I can say for sure without a doubt there is a God.  I met Him, literally met Him (you can read about it here) one day at a park and my life will never be the same.  Reading the bible the other day, as is my daily routine, I came across two scriptures that jumped out at me concerning this topic of whether or not there is a God.

Romans 1:18-20 says:

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being  understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

(italics mine)

Seems to me the verdict is this:  God says here,  I am in all things.  There is no way that you can look around and see the beauty, the variety, the brilliance of things made and doubt that it is I who made them.

I once heard someone liken the following:  To deny we were created by God would be like stumbling upon a magnificent painting (think Leonardo da Vinci) and believing the painting created itself.  Everything made has a creator.  And as magnificent a painter as Leonardo was, how much more magnificent are we?  Moving, breathing, thinking, creatures.  Creatures with a creator.  Just stop and think about the the human eye and its complexities, or one blood cell and all the work it does.  How could this not be God’s masterpiece?

The other scripture that stuck out was Psalm 19:1-4 which states the following:

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.  There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.  Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.

Below are some snapshots of “The heavens declar[ing] the glory of God; the skies proclaim[ing] the work of his hands.”

I love God. I see His beauty all around me, in the people He has blessed me to be around and the places He has blessed me to be. I will try to capture the tiniest part of that beauty here through my experiences and my photographs. Hope you enjoy! ~Michelle
