Kiwi..... Pangolin...Markhor.... PUDU!

I have just lately been looking at totally unique endangered animals. Just looking at them (even the disugsting underwater fish and stuff) I am so overwhelmed at the amazing thought and detail God put into every cell!! I think, "God took so much time to make every detail perfect."
But then I realize this is not so. God did make every cell exactly as he wanted it...but He didn't spend hours on end perfecting His creation.
20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.
The LORD didn't have to take time creating such beautiful creatures (no matter how gross we may think they are). He didn't take years to create the Earth. He spoke and it was so.
Isn't it so overwhelming, and calming, to know that our God is always with us, no matter what?

I hope you don't mind if I dive a tad into a personal experience. Lately I've been wanting to pursue my talents as an actor. My mother, (how wise you get over the years...hehe) told me that "If it's God's will, I will be able to act".


Why is it that simple? Why couldn't my mind wrap around that? Why hadn't I thought of that? Could it be God put mothers on Earth so that we would have someone to relate to and someone to count on?

Some people say that Christianity, Bible-believing, means your a total failure. Then how come we're succeeding? Why are Christians everywhere uniting and surviving the tolls of time?
Could it be God is a Savior who is perfect and all-knowing?

There is a verse in the Bible that says, (Hebrews 4:14)"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who was been tempted in every way, just as we are - but was without sin."
Doesn't that make you feel so content? God has been through everything we are going through. Even more so.

Remember God is with us no matter what. He created every cell of everything.
He is with us now and forever.
He is our best friend,
Our Encourager,
Our Savior,
Our Creator.
