Psalm 136

God constantly shows us His world through his marvelous creation and more importantly through His wisdom. But do we see it? Do we cherish it? Do we look with wonderment at His work, the work of His hands? 

I stand in awe at times as I look at the clouds, they are so beautiful and so different. They spread for miles outwards and upwards. I have never got over the first time I flew above the clouds with the sun setting. It is the most spectacular scene. My heart was just bursting with wonder. 

And this is just a fragment of what he can make. 

Only God works great miracles.

    God’s love never fails.
With wisdom he made the sky.
    God’s love never fails.
The Lord stretched the earth
over the ocean.
    God’s love never fails.
He made the bright lights
in the sky.
    God’s love never fails.
He lets the sun rule each day.
    God’s love never fails.
He lets the moon and the stars
rule each night.
    God’s love never fails. 

When I look at a baby at its most vulnerable and precious moment, just after birth, I am awe struck at its beauty and innocence. I can't stop smiling at his/her little scrunched up face. Something in me just melts.

I love that word, 'melts'. God melts when He sees us. If he had knees they would wobble at our sight. His smile lights up the heavens at the beauty of His creation, us. 

That thought, God melts when He sees us, just blows me away. We see the underside of the tapestry, but God only see the side with the spectacular picture on. Do we see the golden thread that runs through the portrait? That is God's Spirit healing us. God's love weaving in and out of our lives. Look closely next time and you will see that your image is slowly been transformed by those golden threads. When you see them, don't forget to thank Him and to remember God's love never ends. He delights in you, and he wants you to be a reflection of His Glorious Nature.
