God didn’t have to create a world that was so beautiful.
He didn’t have to use so many colors and even different shades of those colors. There’s turquoise, sapphire, iris, cobalt, violet, teal — and those are just in the blue family. He didn’t have to make the sun so bright and radiant that it warms the entire earth and makes the water sparkle. He didn’t have to create a whole new world under that water with sea animals and vegetation; and in order to witness, we must hold our breath and bring ourselves beneath the surface. He didn’t have to make birds sing pleasant melodies and penguins wear chic tuxedos and flowers smell the way they do.
But He did.
He made the world so beautiful that it inspires and awes people daily. He made sunsets so captivating it makes people want to fall in love, and he made starry nights so stunning people spent their lives chasing after that exact scene. He didn’t have to, but he did.
And I think that says something about our God. Something indeed.
And you know what is even MORE fascinating?
“The same hands that created all of this, they created you and I. What a beautiful God.”
