Each one of us is special and was appointed to be at
the place and time we are in the history of the world. Each living person was
brought into this world purposefully by our Creator. There truly are no
“accidents.” We are here because our Creator orders us to be here in this world
right now, right where we are. I have come to realize that there is more to our
Creator than any of us can comprehend. He is wider than the widest ocean,
taller than the tallest mountain, deeper than the deepest sea. He is bigger
than the earth. The earth is His footstool (Isaiah 66:1).
Our Creator loves variety. That is why there are so
many shades and types of people, flowers, stars, animals, birds, experiences,
colors, days, numbers, fish, creatures of the sea, planets, and so on and on.
Yes, our Creator loves variety, which is why He creates the world as a flower
garden of people, each one different, each one with a unique purpose to serve
in the garden. Each flower has a special purpose in a little garden to provide
beauty, fullness, order, scent, and so on.
My encounter with our Creator inspires amazement and
awe. ...the changing seasons…the beauty of a sunny day, snowy, rainy, and
cloudy day…the fact the sun never sets though we see night. On a return flight
from Kenya in 2007, I was seated where I could see through the windows on either
side of the plane. I marveled at how outside one window I could see night
falling while outside the other window the sun was shining brightly. How
awesome to be in a position to see the sun setting on one side of the globe and
rising on the other. What an amazing experience!
