Nature’s Testament

I rarely do three posts a week. Even rarer is two posts a day.

Yet, today is an exception.

Last night a weather statement was sent out, alerting my county that heavy fog was on the move. We were warned to stay off the roads and away from the higher elevations. But, the weather station said, the fog would be gone by 4 a.m..

While remnants still lingered when I arose this morning, the fog had left behind a breathtaking and spellbinding sight.

The trees are coated with frozen fog, edging their branches in pure white that glitters when the sunlight–devoid of any warmth–falls upon it. So I pulled on my sweatshirt, grabbed the camera, tugged on the snow boots, and ambled outside, precariously stumbling across the ice rink that is our driveway so I could reach the back yard’s gate.

As I snapped the below pictures, Psalm 19:1 kept running through my mind. Nature is proof that evolution could not have happened. No big bang could have frozen that fog onto the trees. No eruption of disaster and mayhem could have formed each individual ice crystal with all of its jaw-dropping intricacies.

No, nature offers no proof of evolution or the big bang. Nor does it offer any proof of theistic evolution. Instead, it showcases the wondrous creativity of our Creator.

Likewise, nature is proof of how valuable each individual life is. If God put such thought and design into snowflakes and the aftermath of fog, how much more does He put into the babe in the womb? Human life is complex–from our cardiac and respiratory systems, to how our brains function, to the movements of our muscles and ligaments–we are a testament of our Creator.

The prolife message is blatantly clear in Scripture.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” – Jeremiah 1:5a

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” – Psalm 139:13-16

The God who forms storms and sunshine, who sprinkled the stars across the sky, and who individually forms each one of us, is the Creator. The Designer. He is the I Am. He is the LORD.

And He created the world and everyone and everything in it. Life is precious and valuable to him.

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.

Psalm 19:1

    It’s beautiful! No kidding about evolution not even making any sense! How hard it must be for people to believe that life is a random accident. We had snow yesterday and it left behind amazing amazing views. I’m so happy we get to see the wonders of all four seasons.

      I know. I think it takes more faith to believe disorder could create incredibly complicated systems and formations than believe in a Designer. Doesn’t it always? I love snow and agree on the four seasons. I couldn’t live somewhere that didn’t have all four.

    WOW. That is breathtaking. Winter may not be my all-time favorite season (really just because of the cold), but no one can deny how utterly beautiful it can be! And you are so right; it only displays the awe-inspiring creativity of our Creator! Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

      I didn’t have my glasses on while taking the pictures, so I had no clue what they looked like until I came in, but even wandering around outside half-blind, I could still make out some of the amazing details. It was even prettier when the sun hit it.

      (Winter’s my second favorite season. 😉 )

      You’re welcome!
