And God created everything wonderfull

Telling a toddler Bible stories is not as easy as it sounds. At least not for me. I have to get down to her level of understanding and at the same time i must be aware im not leaving pieces out or add things to what is written. At the moment im reading Genesis 1 for her how God created everything from nothing to something. Its a challenge though. She’s listening and watching (after bribing her that if she sits quiet and let me finish reading than she’ll get the book afterwards…i know im bad, so sorry). The thing is while reading for her its also feeding me spiritually.

It is wonderfull to think about how God created every.single.thing. And how He did it. Just amazing. Just by saying those words “Let there be ….” and there it was. Whoa thats some mighty way of creation. 
Can you imagine that? Just by speaking those powerful words Let there be …

God just spoke and there it was. But He wasnt done yet. He made man and woman Adam and Eve. This time He didnt created them like all other creations. I think we humans are very special, we are loved, we are unique. I think thats why He did it different this time. This time He took His time to form man and woman….out of dust. Can you imagine He took His time to put all those organs inside the body. He took His time to make all those veins inside, the heart and how it should work, all the hairs, our eyes…everything!!! 

Reading Genesis 1 the creation

Maybe our little human is to young to understand all of this…but i know that if she hears what God did, how He created everything, how He made us, How much He loves her, what He did for her on the cross, how He is with her and looks after her… yes she may be to little to understand but i believe her little heart still soaks every word up cuz Gods word is powerfull and loving. Gods love for her, for us is so much more than we know. 

Genesis 1:26-28King James Version (KJV)

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Good night and i pray God will bless you!
