One beautiful summer morning, I sat in my backyard, worshipping God as I prepared my heart for my time with Him. As I sat there, I was reminded of the majesty and greatness of God and of all He has created, even down to the little sparrow that flew down and perched on my gate post as I reflected on all of this.
I opened my Bible to Genesis and read the story of Creation. As I did, one thing that stood out to me was the number of times that God saw that what He had created was "good." I counted seven times. God was pleased with His creation. In fact, the seventh time, it says that when God looked over all He had created, He saw that it was not just good, it was VERY good Genesis 1:31).
Since the Creator Himself was that pleased with His creation, it's no wonder that, as I sat and looked over the grass, the plants, the trees, and the animals right there in front of me, I felt grateful to God and in awe of all He has created.
