Springs


1 So the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the furniture of them. 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made: and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done. 3 And he blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. 4 These are the generations of the heaven and the earth, when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the heaven and the earth: 5 And every plant of the field before it sprung up in the earth, and every herb of the ground before it grew: for the Lord God had not rained upon the earth; and there was not a man to till the earth.

6 But a spring rose out of the earth, watering all the surface of the earth. 7 And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth: and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul. 8 And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure from the beginning: wherein he placed man whom he had formed. 9 And the Lord God brought forth of the ground all manner of trees, fair to behold, and pleasant to eat of: the tree of life also in the midst of paradise: and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 10 And a river went out of the place of pleasure to water paradise, which from thence is divided into four heads
.
Genesis 2:1-10

The breath of life always speaks so loudly. He gave the world life even when we try to believe other wise. Look how hard the people of the world are trying to prove that God doesn't exist or for that matter that he made heaven and earth. But God also breathed life into us so we could learn of him. He gave some knowledge to show us the vastness of the heavens. He gave some the ability to create things to help us understand how he created it all. But we don't look at it that way either. Instead they use that knowledge for evil purposes not for what God intended. He gave us water to keep us alive and we pollute it. We complain when it rains, but we fail to understand that the world we live on needs that rain for it's interior as much as we need water to drink to keep our bodies from dying. Think of the earth as a human body, it's interior suffers as much as our human bodies do. We have been made to co-exist on the earth. Just like we have little bugs on our bodies that co-exist with us. It's all there for a purpose.
