God’s Intended Creation

I start on the path in the woods

And I immediately feel God’s presence

The trees and undergrowth, His creation

Peaceful and soothing, “It is good.”

A place where humans rarely trod

It is as God intended creation to be

As I leave the woods the scars appear

Created by the fall of humanity in a garden long ago

The imprint of human creation on the land

Towering buildings fighting the ravages of time

On the edge of the woods I can clearly see

The forces of God’s design pressing against humanity

Until the new earth appears to heal the scar

To restore the earth to what it was meant to be

God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. – Genesis 1:31 (NASB)

  1. Well said. We can look at creation and see how loving God is. I like Romans 1:20, there it says “For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable.”

    1. Yes, I like that verse as well. We can see God’s hand on the world he created. His presence is evident. Thanks for the comment. Blessings.
