Maximizing everyday moments to glorify God

“The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.” Psalm 95:5

on August 11, 2011

One of my fondest childhood memories is building sandcastles at the beach. Growing up in Florida, we did it a lot, but the experience was very special to me.

My “masterpieces” were typically what we called “blob sandcastles,” when you get the sand really wet and just let it drip out, forming all kinds of different shapes for your castle.

Now that I have my own children, I love making sandcastle memories with them when we take trips to visit relatives in Florida. The creations are about the same as when I was a child, and I pray my kids will have a fondness for the experience when they are adults.

The feeling of crafting and shaping with nothing but sand and water to make beautiful creations was precisely what came to mind when I pondered the words of Psalm 95:5. “The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.”

What a picture that puts in my mind. Just imagine the God of the universe carefully crafting all that is on the earth. He formed the land and sea, molded the mountains and smoothed out the plains. He made masterpiece after masterpiece.

And do you know why? His creation – in all its intricacy, variety and beauty exist to praise Him. The amount of care and creativity as He took to make the earth and skies pales when compared to the care and creativity He took to make you and me. We are intricately and beautifully made – with variety and uniqueness that He specially designed to bring Him glory.

He holds everything in the palm of His hand. He is the master creator. Oh, to sing praises to Him. He loves us so much.
