Old Time Hymns

“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”

(Romans 1:20 ESV)

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.”

(Colossians 1:16 ESV)

I was researching hymns. I was wondering what the top hymns were. Each list differed but the top 2 on each list was “Amazing Grace” and “How Great Thou Art”.

Amazing Grace is a great song. I love it. But here is the first verse to “How Great Thou Art”:

“Oh Lord, my God
When I, in awesome wonder.
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made.
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder.
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.”

How Great Thou Art by Carl Boberg

Just think, God created everything. I want to question some of His choices in critters, but hey, He knows best.

I like to look at pictures of the universe. It’s beautiful. For space to be so dark, it’s really not. The colors are amazing. God shows us His majesty every day. We are given beautiful sunrises and sunsets. There are rainbows after storms. Flowers and trees.

But the most remarkable thing to me is we are all different. We are created in his image but no 2 people have the same fingerprints. I have learned recently that our footprints are all unique too. Even snowflakes are different. Supposedly no 2 snowflakes are alike. I wonder how God does it. Does He sit in heaven and draw a blueprint and say here’s the next batch of fingerprints? Or the next batch of snowflakes?

Just thought I would give you food for thought today. 

Have a great day.
