A Beautiful Blossoming

Every year as spring moves fully into summer I find myself awed by the explosion of life around me. Whether it is flowers blooming, trees bursting into green glory almost before my eyes or the beautiful cacophony of singing birds greeting me in the morning – the world teems with life. As I go on my daily hikes with my dog I marvel at the instinct that keeps little ducklings clamoring around their moms and watch with delight as I see an ungainly fawn bounce along the trail its mother navigates with ease. This activity all around me truly is an explosion of life. And that is exactly the reason why I see God so clearly in this world around me – because it truly is an explosion; an explosion of life. Like any explosion, it begins somewhere. It begins with God.

How anyone can look at a newborn baby or even a blooming flower for that matter – and not see the hand of God in that is a mystery to me. I see a new life and it’s as if I am looking all the way back to the beginning of time. No matter if it is a human or a plant – that particular life which I am just witnessing owes its existence to the very first burst of life that God created. It cannot be any other way. Nothing dead or inanimate can lead to life. It is impossible and nothing has ever been demonstrated, discovered or developed to prove otherwise.

The flowers, trees, ducklings, fawns and newborn babies all – just shout, “God!” And Paul’s words  echo in my mind, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.…” (Romans 1:19-20)
