Behold Who Hath Created These Things


 Isaiah 40:25   To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

  Isaiah 40:26   Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth.

  Isaiah 40:27   Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?

  Isaiah 40:28   Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding.

  Isaiah 40:29   He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength.

I was thinking of these verses and wanted to share them here, but wasn't sure what to post with it until my mom mentioned it was a full moon tonight. I thought I would try to capture a few pictures. These rippled layer of clouds were passing over, somewhat hiding the moon, but I was able to get a few in between the clouds moving by. I hope and pray that these verses will be a blessing to you like they have been to me.

It's Winter of A New Year

 I think most of us think the same each year, so perhaps it's a bit repetitious--but it's always hard to believe how quickly a year seems to go by. I'm still getting used to the thought that it's really 2022 now. In these winter days, I haven't had as much to post about, but hope all of my readers are doing well! 

I find it a thought of interest to consider one day in eternity there will be no more years as we know it now.

There will be no night there. Revelation 21:25

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by Him that liveth for ever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: 

-Revelation 10:5-6


-By Philip Phillips, 1868

Are there no years in Heaven?
No change of day and night?
No rolling seasons’ varied hues
To mark time’s onward flight?

No: Time itself must fade,
And New Years’ Days shall cease,
When all God’s children meet on high,
To hail the Prince of Peace.

His realm is endless rest,
And perfect holiness!
No cares shall cloud, no sorrow dim
That home of loveliness.

In His great name we raise
Our New Year’s song to Heaven;
To praise our Father’s boundless love,
And ask to be forgiven.

Savior, be Thou our trust,
Our daily, hourly friend;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee—
The love which knows no end.

So may our lives on earth
Made happy by Thy grace,
Be foretastes of a fairer home—
A heavenly dwelling place.

Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
-Colossians 4:5
