Love’s Pursuit

The Greatest Pursuit.
Creation Reflecting The Creator.
Nature is one of God’s beautiful creations. Through nature, God is able to teach us, speak to us, and provide for us. In many ways has He made Himself known to man.

‘For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.’ Romans 1:20 (NLT).

Take a look at everything around you. Begin with the birds and examine their flight. Go to the fish and marvel at their existence. Proceed to the ecosystem and try figuring it out. Conclude with your precious life. He knew you even before you were conceived. That’s why He pursues you; to guide you on how to go about occupying this amazing earth.

Just ask the animals, and they will teach you. Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you. Let the fish in the sea speak to you.…. For the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being.’ – Job 12:7-10 (NLT).

It’s amazing to learn that amidst all these glorious and magnificent creations of God, you and I form the center of His Love. You are the apple of His eye.

‘For thus says the LORD of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.’ – Zechariah 2:8.

Prayer Corner: Lord, thank You for loving us as You do, that You did not wait for us to draw nigh to You, but You showed Yourself in frail humanity; that You did not wait for us to cry out to You, but You Let us hear Your voice calling us. (Forever Grateful – Song By Juanita Bynum).

Thank You for stepping down, that we may step up,

Thank You for laying down, that we may be raised up;

Thank You for coming down, that we may climb up,

Thank you for pursuing Your own, that we may look up.

Nature’s Little Secrets

Via Avid! Via Earth!
Ever since childhood, when I would visit my grandparents, I always found myself asking many questions, with the aim of trying to understand why things are the way they are – specifically nature. I am at their ranch visiting again and this time round, avidly examining nature; its beauty, its actions, its existence and so on. One thing has stood out: the fact that all creation is worshiping God. That is what everything was created to do.

Some through color;

Others through sounds,

Pictures I have gathered;

To help me expound.

Look at the smile on Grandma’s face. Makes me wanna melt. Lesson Learnt: Celebrate your loved ones while they are still alive. There’s a lot to learn from those who have been there longer than us.

This is fresh from Grandpa’s farm. The little things we take for granted. Lesson Learnt: They live longer than we do because they eat healthier than we do.

This picture gives me a worship feel. Looks as though the banana trees are bowing down in worship. Lesson Learnt: I will lift my hands in worship and bow down in adoration because He has given me the ability to do so.

This little garden is quite welcoming in front of Grandma’s porch. Lesson Learnt: Always look good.

I used to think I was tall until I met these guys. Lesson Learnt: There’s always something I can learn from another. I have not yet attained all knowledge.

Ain’t she beautiful? She looks to me as though she’s trying to make the ‘ok’ sign with her petals even though she can see that her leaves have been eaten away. Lesson Learnt: Always remain positive, even when everyone around you is negative.

On a lighter note, this tree resembles the one Adam and Eve were hanging out under when the serpent showed up. What do you think?
  • I now believe that the word ‘Analogy’ simply means Anna using Logic to understand how God can use anything to communicate to her.
  • I now understand why the Gospel needs to be preached to every creature: because they too were created to worship the Creator, thus should not be left behind in this Great Commission.

It’s time to show a keen interest on everything around us. There is so much to learn. God is at liberty to speak to us through anything: both living and non – living, with the aim of ensuring that we clearly understand what He is saying.

‘And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature’ – Mark 16:15
