When we were camping this weekend, my niece Brooke, Addie and I were watching the beautiful colors of the sun setting over the lake we were on. Just to the left of us, though, was the most amazing, huge MOON coming up over the horizon. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever witnessed. Brooke and I both tried to take some pictures, but nothing we took seemed to do justice to the beauty we were beholding. You can't tell in the pictures, but the moon was larger than life.
Now we spend a lot of time in our family talking about God and Jesus, and Addie often asks "Where's Jesus?", and we talk about Heaven and God, and how Jesus is in Heaven with his Daddy, God. But to my knowledge we have never talked with Addie about God creating anything. As we were looking at the moon, I asked Addie, "Do you know who made that beautiful moon?" And without a moments hesitation, she practically yelled "Jesus did!!" I couldn't believe my ears. How did she know this?
Romans 1:19-20 (New Living Translation)
19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
Wow, talk about the faith of a child.......I stand amazed!!"Jesus" !!
1 The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. 2 Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.
