Beautiful in His time

16 10 2014

When events happen that make it seem as if there is no order, I find it encouraging to watch the creative design of God, even in small details.

Recently I found some beautiful pictures that depict God’s creativity and attention to detail.  (I got these from )

Bläuling (Lycaenidae)

“For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible….”

Streifenwanze (Graphosoma lineatum)

…And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” (The Bible, Colossians 1:16,17)

These water splash photographs are by Heinz Maier. (also from

Red on White

 If God watches over butterflies and water splashes with such skill and detail, can I not — must I not– entrust my situation to Him?  Would I really want to seize control and take things into my own hands, when I have a God who does this continually?

I do not always see the beauty of His work. Sometimes it is marred by sin and sickness. But I choose to believe, as do we as a family, that God is good and mighty good.


Along this line,  I wrote in a similar vein in speaking of fractals.
