Suppose: What if the World were Different?



What do you suppose the world would be like if there were no colors or light or water or resources of any kind? Let’s take a journey using our imaginations to picture a different sort of world.



Suppose the World were Different


Suppose the world were dull and gray

No colors for variety

No daffodils or purple sage

Or rainbows there to grace the sky


Suppose the rain were not to fall

No water to replenish lakes

No nourishment for thirsty lands

Or respite from the sun’s great heat


Suppose the sun refused to shine

No light to brighten up the day

No benefits to bolster health

Or warming rays to beat the chill


Suppose the world were on its own

No people could survive for long

No resources to stabilize

Or loving God to give it life



I’m glad our world is not left on its own. In the Bible we read a totally different story than the one imagined in the poem.



Genesis 1:26-27 (CSB)

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness.

They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, the whole earth,

and the creatures that crawl on the earth.

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



We do have a loving God who created everything and sustains it by His power.


Colossians 1:16-17 (CSB)

For everything was created by him,
in heaven and on earth,
the visible and the invisible,
whether thrones or dominions
or rulers or authorities—
all things have been created through him and  for him.
He is before all things, and by him all things hold together.

    Thank you for this powerful post! Our God is so mighty, and He has created such amazing life for us.

Thank you Dear Friend! xoxo

  2. A world without the creations of God is not a world I want to know. He provides many blessings for us to enjoy and for us to care for. 🙂 I am so very thankful for His creations. Have a blessed week!

    1. Yes, it is humbling, isn’t it? He made the world a place where we could live, and not other place will do. Blessings to you, Carrie! Thanks for visiting.

    1. Oh, me too, Lisa. What would we do without color? 🙂 It helps to stop and think about how things might have been and then appreciate all the more what beauty He created. Blessings to you, Lisa!
