Morning glory

There are many beautiful wild flowers to see during my morning walks. Some are purple; some are red. But one of the most lovely flowers I see every day at 5:45 a.m. is the Morning Glory.

Gardeners hate the Morning Glory because it chokes the lives out of the plants they are trying to grow. But, on the side of the road in contrast to the green grass and purple flowers the Morning Glory is beautifully white with tinges of purple. And, it’s only open early in the morning just for me.

The psalmipomoeaalba_4ist wrote, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God,'” (Psalm 53:1a NKJV). It is impossible for one to look upon God’s creation and not see his existence. Those who believe this world and everything in it is an accident are exactly what God said they are.

One must have help mistaking the created beauty of the world for an accident. Look at the Morning Glory. Could this flower have been created by a mistake? It has design. It is not like any other flower of the field. Those who say there is no God do so because they have been misled and deceived. As the psalmist wrote, “They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good,” (Psalm 53:1b).

Those who dispute the existence of God have given up on one of the simplest maxims of the universe: cause and effect are everywhere. Saying God’s creation was all an accident sets aside the truth of cause and effect for a lie. If one buys a watch that keeps time does he say the watch is an accident. No, he appreciates its design and its precision. Everything in the natural world proclaims God’s glory in its design and purpose. Just look at the Morning Glory.
