I was at a funeral today of a brother in the Lord, and as he was being laid to rest there were oystercatchers ‘shrieking’ close by.
As I looked I saw why they were getting so agitated, they had three chicks quite close to the funeral.
This was rather apt as the brother being buried was an avid birdwatcher and lover of nature.
For him, and for me, nature in all its glory cries out that there is a God.
We shared a number of times together watching red kites and ospreys (among other things) in the glorious outdoors.
Today I was reminded of the beauty of creation and the beauty of the Creator.
The wonderful and intricate relationships between species points to an intelligent Designer, points to God.
Let me ask you this for example; what came first, the flower with the nectar to attract insects or the insects that can pollinate the flowers?
One needs the other, yet we are expected to believe that they both evolved to give us the relationship we see today.
Let me ask you another question; how is it that fossils of birds can be found underneath the fossils of the dinosaurs that they were supposed to have evolved from?
Doesn’t add up does it!
The truth is what we read in Genesis, that God created the wonderful world and all the species in it.
Go out and enjoy that creation today, I already have!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the wonder of creation, thank you for the variety of species that displays your handiwork so clearly”.
Genesis 1 v 21…..And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that is was good
