Do You Like Riddles?
If so, I have a small riddle for you. This morning I read this passage and wondered if it were separated from the first portion I had read, would I know who this is talking about. Isn't that what some riddles are, knowing the whole of a part?
Here's what I read. Do you know who this is talking about? Who was with Him while He created this wonderful world around us?
"God sovereignly possessed me-the first, the basic-before He did anything else.
I was brought into being a long time ago, well before Earth got its start.
I arrived on the scene before Ocean, yes, even before Springs and Rivers and Lakes.
Before Mountains were sculpted and Hills took shape, I was already there, newborn.
Long before God stretched out Earth's Horizons, and tended to the minute details of Soil and Weather, and set Sky firmly in place, I was there.
When He mapped and gave borders to wild Ocean, built the vast vault of Heaven and installed the fountains that fed Ocean, when He drew a boundary for Sea, posted a sign that said NO TRESPASSING, and then staked out Earth's foundations, I was right there with Him making sure everything fit.
Day after day I was there, with my joyful applause, always enjoying His company, delighted with the world of things and creatures, happily celebrating the human family". From The Message.
I know everyone is tired of snow and cold. The photo above is from our last snow, we are expecting more to move in this evening. The kids have missed a lot of school days in our area, I don't know how they will make them up.
I hope you have a joyful and blessed Sunday
