Random Question: What element of creation most causes you to worship God?


The picture here is of a 21- week old baby that was being operated on in utero and reached throught the incision and grasped the doctor's finger.



A Question from Edie at Rich Gifts

I see God in everything. He made it all. I think one of the things that declares Himself to me most is the human body. All of it. The outside, the inside, the brain especially. The fact that we have the capacity to heal when injured. DNA. Sight. Smell. He gave us everything we need to experience the world around us, to analyze, to laugh, to cry, to feel. Our lungs depend on the atmosphere right here on earth.Our minds are behind music, architecture, literature, the alphabet, reading,..everything! We were made in his image! What is being ticklish all about? Pain is a blessing. It is our built-in warning system to stop doing what we are doing (i.e. touching something hot) before we cause permanent damage. Our thoughtfully placed fingernails..so useful! Digestive systems that process innumerable food types. Our ability to love. The way our bodies bend to accommodate all types of activities. The way men and women fit together to make new life. The way a baby grows inside its mom. Laughing. Taste..thanks! Hiccups. Dreaming. Sleeping. Yawning. Sneezing. Memory. Being able to make up a story. Our fingerprints..no one exactly the same. We have been given incredible gifts. I know I take it for granted and have also not taken the best care of mine. God's creativity is absolutely amazing. He really thought of everything! Is there anything you find neat about the human body that I didn't mention?

Isn't that amazing-that photo? I am in awe. Thanks for such a thought provoking post. I take sooo much for granted too. What wonders we have to praise our God for, and how little do we actually do it???

You just encouraged me to do it alot more!!

I love your answer. What a wonderful gift we have all be given. Even the details, did you know when you have a baby the number of weeks you are pregnant should measure to the number of centimenters that your belly grows! God worked out every detail perfectly. It's amazing!

Hi Angela - His design is just so perfect isn't it. The way that men and women are wired so differently in the way they think is a facination to me too. I also read once that mens arms actually fit on their bodies differently than womens so they can't hold babies quite the way a women can. Have a great weekend!
