An Awesome God!

*JMJ* I absolutely love to read the National Geographic's. I love, love, love this magazine. This is the only magazine that I read from cover to cover. No kidding. I sent away for a subscription. They have a great deal going on right now and I get a free world map. I just love free stuff. =) But the reason why I'm writing this post in my Catholic blog is because every time I pick up one of these magazines, it brings my mind to God. Every single time. Even if I don't pick one up for six months. And the August issue was no different. When I see the photos of strange, but beautiful colored birds. I think of God. It also had a picture of leaves. But if you looked closer, you can see three frogs! They were blending in with there surroundings to hide from predators. When an article talks about the biggest volcano in Yellowstone park that will eventually pop some day. And they show graphs of the depths of these volcano's going thousands of miles below the earths surface. This just amazes me. When the Yellowstone volcano erupts one day.....and it will.....that it will destroy the whole earth. That's what the experts are saying. You can see photos of strange ocean creatures. Again it will bring my mind to God who created them. It's just amazes me. Or there will be an article talking about how Salmon go back to there birth place to mate and then they die. But the generation keeps repeating it self. It's just, so fascinating. It brings my mind to God. How did God create all of this in as little of six days! Oh my gosh. It's a mystery. I will never understand it. Not now anyway. But hopefully one day. I forget what country, but bodies were being found in the bogs in a leather like state in almost perfect condition from thousands of years ago. It's just so remarkable. Get this. The last article was about camels! That brought my mind to Christ. Because there were camels in His day for transportation. The three wise men, right? When I got to it, I thought "This doesn't bring my mind to God." Then I thought, "Oh my gosh! It does! It does!" Lol. =) See! And to think that God had created all of us human beings. But what really gets me is all of the intricacies. How all humans, animals, plants, the atmosphere and the bodies of water, all work. It's just so mind blowing. But to know that there is such an awesome God who created this. Created this from NOTHING. Hello. Wow. God is so great. That is why I give the National Geographic such a high score in my book. Because it brings my mind to God. So the next time you see a National Geographic on a book stand, go ahead, and pick one up! I'll bet you'll be delighted to see, that it brings your mind to God. God bless you all!

What a wonderful recommendation for such a wonderful magazine, it's been several years since I have even read one, but now I think I will, just pick it even if it's just fo see God in it.
Thank you......:-) Hugs

Oh, I so agree! I do like that magazine and we have so many old ones from my husband's father and grandfather too, and I always thought that looking through them.
And I've been feeling that same way about a lot of God's creation that I see in magazines, on TV, in real life, and so many, many things bring to mind the awesomeness of God and all He's Created!
Nice post!

What a great post! I used to read NG all the time, but I have to admit I havent picked one up in a while. I might just have to now!

Your post reminds me to stop and "smell the roses" from time to time... to take a break and just look around and be amazed at all the things God has created.

God Bless!

Beautiful reminded me of the time I was at Sea World in Orlando watching a video prior to the Shamu show. It showed so many of the wonders of the ocean in vivid colors, and I was overcome in thinking of the magnificence of God the Creator. How did He create this wonderful world? His ability is mind-boggling. So much went in to everything He did. No wonder He loves the world so much - it is really a masterpiece. It must hurt Him when we don't treat it as such. He loves us anyway - we're part of His masterpiece.
