Holy Spirit Church, Isle aux Morts, Newfoundland

Holy Spirit Church,
Isle aux Morts,

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV).

When I think of God’s workmanship, I have to look at the things all around me. He created all the stars in the heavens. Every time I look up into a star studded night sky, my whole being soars with delight and wonder. Twinkling lights against a sapphire sky can take my breath away!

God is all about creativity. I look at the Rocky Mountains and try to understand the grandeur of the artist. I can’t help but think if Him. The majesty of the front range doesn’t begin to compare to Him. And, I am always astonished at the way He changes the appearance of those mountains every day. Every day the shadow of the clouds, the snow on the continental divide, the rain, or some other natural phenomena changes the look.

At the seashore I feel His power with each wave that washes up. God does not create ordinary things. He is supernatural. That, added to His creative genius (which is more than we could ever get our heads around) makes His creations both amazing and inspiring.

Our minds, bodies, and souls are made by a creative God Who didn’t spare the energy or creativity it took to make us. We are amazing in so many ways. Did you know that our noses can remember fifty thousand different scents? And that’s just our nose! The human eye and distinguish about ten million different colors.

In a lifetime, your brain’s long-term memory can hold as many as one quadrillion (that’s one million billion) separate bits of information. Now THAT’S a miracle!
