The Stuff of His Imagination

God had to exist forever
Or nothing could be
All around us is evidence
The very fact that we can see

From nothing comes nothing
Random acts didn't create man
I'm no monkey's relative
I'm part of God's plan

As I look out my window
I let my mind flow
Seeking knowledge
From the God I wish to know

Within my minds eye
I travel back in time
I pray for understanding
The face of the Divine

With logical thinking
If I go back far enough
There can be nothing from nothing
Only God can create stuff

We are the stuff of his dreams
It is through him that we are real
Our mind body and spirits
Interconnected spokes on life's wheel

What is small is big
What is big is small
There is only one hand
Who can hold it all

So I look to the heavens
I try to comprehend
Nothing is truly random
With a God that has no end

    Hi Richard, another fine write my friend. It is strange how science, sooner or later wants to take the glory for the creation of life. The Big Bang. the theory of evolution. Something had to start any scientific reasons off. The gases exploded and there was the big bang that started everything. From where came the gases? We started from one cell creatures. Who caused the one cell life to be? If not God then it was magic and magic is not science. A well written and well thought out write....MIKE.

    I'm always amazed by the first few paragraphs of Genesis, the beginning almost explained in terms of evolution, all the steps are correct but written a time long before evolution was even thought of. Makes you wonder where they got that from. Nice one Rick, Take care, Richard

    this is the one thing I am SURE Of, that we are not from nothing, and that there has to be a creator. VERY nice!!!

    I know it's probably strange to profess my belief and love of God, yet I do believe in evolution. I guess it's just a difference in theological beliefs. I think the "big-bang" and evolution was God's way of putting everything in motion. Though we may not agree, I did enjoy this piece. I enjoy anything that gives glory to God, for he deserves it. I wouldn't be typing this but for his Grace. Kudos, Richard :)

    I think the most important part is that you believe, the rest is just details. One day He will answer all of our questions.

    Ummmm...Amen! You know, I will never understand people with no faith. How can you look all around you and not believe in the higher power! God is good!
