Good Good and Absolutely Very Good

Updated on September 5, 2012

Just picture it. It was nothing to begin with.


Nothing, and then GOD opened His mouth and spoke, and when He did, everything took shape. He used His words to make a new world! He called forth forces of symmetry and beauty and great power. He laid boundaries of order and balance and proportion. With the precision of a master clockmaker He set in motion the wheels of a perfect creation. Then seeing His beauty of His handiwork, He proclaimed with pride,

Good Good and Absolutely Very Good

Lord Oh Lord says

"Let there be Light"

Darkness to be

Sky way up there

Land way down here

Water so plentiful

Winds to brush our cheeks

Tides to bring us delight

Plants to feed us

Trees to give us shade

Sun to warm our souls

Moon for midnight walks

Stars to wish upon

Planets to explore

Animals to love

All things in their vast array

He created

Human Beings

Both Male and Female

His shining glory; which He put in charge.

Just thinking about Eden and the Love of our Creator sometimes gives me an ache that we missed out on our Eden. But knowing one day we will be with Him in Eden.

Heaven

I find myself wondering about the pure and shimmering quality of life in Eden that somehow slipped through our fingers but the hold I can have on Heaven that I refuse to let go of, to this day.

My Lord in His shining Glory

The knowledge of the great unknown

The strength

The love

So Rejoice

I Say Rejoice

GOD of the sky

GOD of the sea

And the birds and the trees

You are also

GOD of ME!

Just think there was nothing to begin with!

Genesis 1:27 So GOD created man in HIS own image, in the image of GOD HE created him: male and female HE created them.

      Hi Deborah, what a mighty creation of our world! His power resides in every one of us, for we should make the best of our time in our Eden before we return to Him in Heaven.

      Voted up and awesome. Take care :-)

      @KatrineDalMonte.. I always find delight in reading your remarks anywhere at any hub you comment..

      This is really a spiritual journey.. @ Deborah Brooks.. This Hub comes to live... After reading this, I think am ready to publish a new Hub!

      This is beautifully written. I just recently published a hub detailing the creation account compared to our modern scientific understanding. In doing so I found that it illustrates very clearly that everything we know as existence formed just as you said, by the power of His words.

      The laws of physics, the laws of nature, work because He spoke them into being. He created laws, then spewed matter into existence. His laws alone formed the universe and this planet.

      Then He commanded life to come forth and gave them direction. Life grew lungs and legs and teeth and claws just to ultimately do what God commanded of them. Millions and millions of individual organisms, all totally unaware of their contribution, all working as a single collective to accomplish what was commanded of them.

      Through science we can now truly see how powerful the word of God is. Without it, gravity would cease to exist and our entire existence would literally unravel.

      This was so beautiful! It was almost like a Psalm. He spoke it into existence. Just think how powerful that is. And, just think ...

      we were created in His image ... our words are powerful as well. Our words ... create ... can create good or evil depending on what is spoken.

    • HeadlyvonNoggin profile image

      Jeremy Christian 5 years ago from Texas

      @homesteadbound

      Yes, exactly right. He gave us great power. And we've shown throughout our history that we're still very new and inexperienced. He is infinite and has the full knowledge and understanding of the ramifications of every action. We're young and ignorant, wielding our power of creation just as you'd expect. We're clumsy, we destroy, we make chemicals and things that don't break down, that don't recycle and continue the circle of life. We have some great ideas and accomplish some truly incredible things, but still ultimately show to be amateurs at best.

      The reasons for us to be here... the reason for creation, only God KNOWS it so well. We might try to fool him , but in the end..we ourselves will catch up with our own creation.

      Lovely and amazingly done!

      Absolutely beautiful rendition of the Beginning. I too feel sad we missed Eden, or even missed being alive during the time of the birth and life of Jesus.

      Beautiful poem! Its give me a sense of His awesome power, greatness and beauty. I'm of the opinion that although life has its challenges, we can access that awesome reality of God now and not only in Heaven. As the prayer of Jesus was and so should our prayer be-"on earth as it is in Heaven".

      Amen and God Bless!

      Deborah,

      First, I love your name and the history behind it. ;)

      Second, my Hub-Bunch knows that I've not yet developed a great love for poetry.

      However, since I'm only just getting acquainted with your work, via a suggestion from our much loved epigramman (long may he reign!), I had a browse through, and selected this one because of the title.

      I love taking the positive road whenever possible, lol.

      I read it, and it's awesome.

      The passion you must have put into it is palpable.

      Well done!

      Just think!!! Yes, indeed, Debbie, just think!!! Words have escaped me at this moment . . . as I am in awe of Him, from just reading your stunningly beautiful words here. There is no man who can re-create a sunset so beautiful or anything so magnificent as His creations, especially all of us. Thank you for such a beautiful reminder that we are ALL made in His image, yet we are all so different, which is the magnificent aspect of it all - we cannot even image His image, as it is far beyond what our little brains can handle - His glory. I needed this beautiful piece tonight. You have caught His eye by glorifying Him in such light. You are His masterpiece, more valuable than any rare gem on this planet and oh so more beautiful dear Sister in Christ. God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper
