Musings From A Musical Mind

The Great Unseen

 

IMG_5568Yesterday Greg found this colorful beetle.  He picked it up and brought it over to me – and my immediate response was to take a few pictures.  I’m afraid they do not adequately capture the intricacy and detail.  The color is a metallic green – and actually has sparkles in it!  So unique and beautiful.  People pay good money to have this color painted on their cars – bodies and other personal belongings.  The beetle has it on for free.  It is dressed in splendor for no particular reason.  Just because.

Reminds me of these scriptures in Matthew 6:

27-29 “Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.

30-33 “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

34 “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Message Bible

If God cares so much for things – most of which are unseen by human eyes – how much more must He care about us – what happens to us, where we go, what we do, where we live, how we manage life day by day, who we touch, influence, love and encourage?  Our simple day-to-day worries seem small when we remember how much God cares about the tiniest detail of His creation.

Greg remembers a time when hunting with his family years ago, they climbed up to a place where few had ever gone.  Well, except the mountain sheep – and if they saw beauty in God’s creation they weren’t telling 🙂  He remembers details in the rock formations, plants and flowers that no one would ever see.  Creatures that would live and die up there in just a few feet of space.  Here today and gone tomorrow with no witnesses that they had been.  And yet, God still created them and saw fit to make them stunning!  The creative, imaginative God spinning colors and details for His enjoyment.  The Great Unseen.

And that inspires me.  This God who sees all, creates beauty whether seen or unseen – lives within me.  Every detail and intricacy of my life, finely woven together for His pleasure.  Whether others see or not.  He is still working, creating, molding, weaving His legacy through me.  Whispering, “it’s okay – relax, I’ve got you”.

And He cares about you in the same way.  So don’t worry, don’t fuss and fume.  If your faith is in Him – you don’t need to be afraid of the future.  He’s got you.  You can trust Him and let it go.  He will come through.  In seen and unseen ways.  Caring more for you than the beautifully detailed flowers of the field.  He cares.  He sees.  He is.

 

God Bless

    Love the scripture selections. Looking back, I can see God’s provision even when it seemed like we were living week to week raising three kids. In the middle of debt and low pay (my wife as a stay at home mom by choice, so we lived on less) my employer won a contest and sent me and my wife on an all expense trip to Hawaii for a week–all expenses paid.
