The Great Creator

All things were made by him;
and without him was not anything made that was made.
- John 1:3 -


Thou art worthy, O Lord, 
to receive glory and honour and power:
for thou hast created all things,
and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
- Revelation 4:11 -


How I praise the great Creator, 
Who did make this world so fair;
As I scan the realm of nature 
I can see His image there.


In the steep and on the hill-top, 
There I find His royal throne;
And the God who made the mountain 
Ever loves me as His own.


Tiny bud and lovely flower, 
All the fragrant bloom of spring,
Show the sweetness and the beauty
Of my Sov'reign and my King.


Bubbling spring and swirling river,
Lapping lake and tossing sea,
All declare the might and greatness
Of the One who cares for me.


How I praise the great Creator,
Who did make this world so fair;
For I too am His creation,
And I love Him for His care.
- David George Ball -


Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. 
Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. 
Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
Let them praise the name of the LORD: 
for he commanded, and they were created.
- Psalm 148: 2-5 -


When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, 
the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? 
and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, 
and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; 
thou hast put all things under his feet: 
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, 
and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 
- Psalm 8: 3-8 -


For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens;
God himself that formed the earth and made it;
he hath established it, he created it not in vain,
he formed it to be inhabited:
I am the LORD; and there is none else.
- Isaiah 45:18 -

Have a beautiful and blessed Lord's Day, dear friends!

Oh, how majestic and powerful our Mighty God is, Stephanie! And you've really captured some gorgeous photos to show the greatness (big and small) and how He has made it all, from the largest to the smallest! And He cares for it all and for us. He loves us so dearly, and what a joy to remember that we must not be filled with fear because we know He has it all under control! Thank you for sharing your wonderful Lord's Day posts, my sweet friend! Hugs!

Dear Stephanie

You said it all!

We owe our very lives to God our Creator who gave us air to breathe, water and everything we have in the universe to survive.

The defenceless little bird symbolises for me how precious life is and how we must respect all life.

Love and Blessings to you dear Stephanie.
Shane
