Hitchhikers and galaxies

It rained today, and when I pulled into the driveway, there were snails everywhere. There’s nothing unusual about that, but on my way to the front door this little hitchhiker caught my attention.

This little baby snail reminded me again of the wonder of God’s creation; the vastness of his starry galaxies, and the tiniest details, even those hidden from the naked eye.

I’m reading Margaret Feinberg’s book Wonderstruck at the moment, and she says it so well:

The sky, the land, the vegetation, the animals all speak of the power, the majesty, the goodness of God. They remind us of God’s presence in our world, strengthening our faith, comforting our soul, and encouraging us to continue pursuing him. The vastness of creation trumpets God’s transcendence and immanence – allowing us to bask in the wonder of both God’s enormity and infinitesimal intricacy.

SpaceWhen I look around at the colours and the diversity of nature, when I feel the breeze on my skin and smell the scent on the air, when I gaze up at the stars, I am reminded of God’s love. And I am encouraged to keep pursuing Him.

What is creation saying to you?
