I’m taking a week off of doing our Proverbs 31 Bible study and instead posting on something that has been on my mind for the last few months.
As many of you know, I’m studying to become a web designer and in doing so, I’m learning just how much hard work it takes to put a web site together that is both user friendly and visually appealing. A good web site doesn’t just “happen.” It takes a lot of time of time, skill, effort, and an eye for design to get the job done. We’ve all been to good and bad web sites, and because of this we can appreciate when a site has a great design. It makes the content more attractive and more likely to be read.
Well, I have often found myself leaving school and driving home in awe of God as I look at the the design He has created around me. The sun, sky, clouds, trees, fields, people…..all so wonderfully and masterfully designed for His pleasure and our benefit. Seeing all of the design around me which the Lord has so powerfully spoken forth is amazing. He is the Great Designer indeed.
All of this (earth, space, time, plants, animals, stars, you, me….) didn’t just “happen.” No. There is a Creator and a masterful Designer in it all.
I’ve found a song that makes my heart worship the Lord and reminds me of how awesome a designer He is, too. Take a listen…..
Thank you, Jesus, for speaking this world in existence and sustaining it with Your powerful hand. Studying design has made me see with fresh eyes the design You have brought forth around me.
