The Hummingbird Moth

Gen 1: 21 “So God created…”

I was out in my yard one spring day taking photos of the flowers and butterflies and came upon a tiny creature I had never seen. There were about five or six of these little “critters” busily gathering nectar from the marigolds. I had never seen anything quite like them before and at first I thought it might be a baby hummingbird but then I noticed his body resembled the body of a bumblebee. The wings were different-dark around the edges but transparent in the middle. I later, after an Internet search, discovered this little creature is called a “Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth”.

I continue to marvel at God’s creation. He makes everything unique to it’s own purpose.  Every moth He makes He creates in a very special design and for a very specific purpose.  He does the same for us.  He creates each of us unique to His purpose and plan.  He designs us to look a certain way, have a unique personality, talents, etc. and places within each of us a desire to know Him and love Him.

Psalm 139: 15 “For You created my innermost being;  You knit me together in my mother’s womb…all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.”

Jeremiah 29: 11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord…”

The great God of the universe created this tiny distinctively different hummingbird moth and He created me and you for a specific purpose!
