This is my second blog in a series about God’s amazing creation. Thanks to a sister in the Lord for the ocean pictures and the amazing butterfly photo.
God’s creation is intended to impress us with His magnificence and eternal power (Rom. 1:20). Why do we get a sense of awe from seeing a mountain vista or a brilliant sunrise? It all points to His glory. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1).
The butterfly is a picture of transformation. “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind“. (Romans 12:2) The Greek word for ‘transform’ is ‘metamorphoo’. It’s similar to the English, metamorphosis. The caterpillar changes into a beautiful butterfly. We change into something beautiful when we surrender by faith to the Spirit of God through the word of God, day by day, moment by moment.
Are you worried?
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:25, 26)
You]visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it;
The river of God is full of water; You provide their grain,
For so You have prepared it.
You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows;
You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth. (Ps. 65:9, 10)
Then the trees of the woods shall rejoice before the Lord,
For He is coming to judge the earth. Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. (I Chr. 16:33, 34)
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. (James 1:19)

Thank you for stopping by. It’s my hope that God’s word will encourage you during this difficult time that we all are facing.
