picturing God

“Look at how the field flowers grow. They do no work nor do they weave and yet, I tell you not even Solomon in all his finery was ever as well dressed as just one of them. If that is how God clothes the grass in the field … will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith?” (Matthew 6:28-30)

What sort of things do you see that cause you to pause and consider God’s work in your life?

  1. That is a beautiful picture! The blog looks great. I look at Nicholas everyday and I
    consider how God has blessed my life. God encourages me daily to be a better mother, wife, and Christian.

  2. Everytime I read that science has decided the universe is bigger than previous estimates, I think God gets a good chuckle out of it.

    But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 1 Cor. 1:27 (TNIV)

    Great blog idea

  3. What makes me pause and consider God’s work in my life?
    *A newborn babe, all soft, wrinkled and cuddly.
    *A field of wildflowers in West Texas smiling after the rain.
    *A grandchild passing me in height!
    *Attempting to take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
    *A new brother or sister rising up from the waters of baptism.
    *A convicting gospel sermon.
    *My husband and I celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary…all soft, wrinkled and cuddly!!
    II Cor. 4:15b-18 “…the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

  4. David,

    The site is beautiful – how awesome to be uplifted by God’s glorious words.
    I still miss Baytown and hope to visit again one day!

  5. David, I knew you were going to put all those beautiful pictures to use someday. Thanks for sharing them with all of us. I think of all the answered prayer in my life that comes in so many unexpected ways. When I think of what is going on around me, I just remember that this is all part of God’s mighty plan for ALL involved. Praise God for all his ways!!!!!

  6. This verse has actually been the subject of my blog as well. I have a couple of unusual looking plants with brilliant orange flowers that have tiny purple tips on the end of each pedal as if dipped in paint. Another similar plant on my patio produces gorgeous pink and purple blossoms. They grew on a plant that does nothing more than sit in a pot on my patio soaking up God’s sun and rain. All I do is look on and marvel at its beauty.
    My faith in God’s promise is challenged when I worry about paying bills. I am trying to have patience that God will provide and that God is taking care of all our needs as well (better) as he does the grass of the field. Every new bloom on my plants remind me of this verse in Matthew.

  7. When I see my beautiful wife and son playing together it’s as if I can literally see the love pouring out of her heart to him. And as I daily see him grow and learn I am reassured that God is ever present and at work in our lives…and I thank Him for it.

  8. My life has been blessed from the very beginning! From born premature by 2 months…..to being paralyzed from my neck down by polio……from being ripped away from birth family. God answered all those prayers, along with countless more. My two beautiful, faithful children and new grand child. My health. Loving and caring and supportive Christian brothers and sisters……it goes on and on. I am shameful of myself for ever having any doubts. At those times I am no different than the Israelites were and pray continuously that my faith and love grow stronger and stronger every day that He allows me to live. I am most blessed and thankful!!!
