when God paints…


25/02/2011 by Sarah Ritchie

A friend emailed me this recently. I do not know who wrote it. or compiled the images, but it is verse worth sharing. Titled: “When God Paints“.

When God Paints 1

When God paints
He uses red and orange
Bold and full of passion
Like the fiery power of His love for us

When God Paints 2

When God paints
He uses the yellow of the sun
Full of illuminating warmth
To comfort us all throughout our days

When God Paints 3

When God paints
He uses shades of purple
To remind us of the royal majesty
Of His blessings all around us

When God Paints 4

When God paints
He uses unspoiled whites
Full of all the purity and hope
Of the Heavens where He reigns

When God Paints 5

When God paints
He uses gentle greens
Sprouting though all of Nature
As His love and grace grows each day

When God Paints 6

When God paints
He uses oceans of blues
Like the rainy tears in the sky
Letting us know He feels our every pain

When God Paints 7

When God paints
He brings all the colors together
Showing us the intricate depth
Of this glorious realm He’s created for us

When God Paints 8

When God paints
He doesn’t skimp on colors
He uses all that he can
He invented each and every one, after all!

    LOVE these images! God could have just created a place for us to live that would sustain our lives. Instead He created a place that would not only sustain us physically, but is beautiful to behold. Creation speaks (loudly) of His majesty!

    …and just think what Heaven will be like…!

    You said it! If this is what a sin-tainted world looks like…we have no way of conceiving what we’ll see!
