Busy Mom Bible Study: Creator

Following along with the 2011 Blog Dare and my goals, I'm committing to write a Bible Study post each Sunday! If you'd like to join in on today's Bible Study, write your own post and link up to this one or just leave a comment with your thoughts!

"In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1

Meet God, the creator of everything. God spoke and the world came into existence - his imagination created the heavens and the earth and all they contain: stars and planets, mountains and oceans, animals and plants. And as the highlight of the whole thing, God created people like you with the unique ability to wonder at the world around you and give him the praise he deserves. As you rock your child or carpool the kids it's easy to forget that it all comes from somewhere and belongs to someone. Remember today that everything you touch - even the air you breathe - is the fruit of God's amazing imagination.

Study: Read Genesis 1:1 - 31

Reflect and Pray: Think of something you have been involved in creating - your home, your family, an achievement at work. How do you feel about it? So what do you think God feels about you? What difference does this make in the way you might respond to him?

I feel that "my creation" I'm most proud of would be my children. I've birthed them, taken care of them and I raise them as best I can. When I struggle with them on something (like potty-training, doing chores, listening, etc.) or when they make bad choices, I feel bad and even sometimes like I'm a failure as a mother. That definitely makes me re-think how God must feel when we make bad choices. It's like when you did something when you were a kid and your parents were "disappointed" in you - having them be disappointed is SO much worse than anything else they could be. Instead of thinking about God as a Supreme Judge in the Sky, this week I'm going to focus more on him being a Big Daddy!
