The Smallest Inspiration: Life at the Atomic Scale

As a science teacher, I often stumble across super cool things that most people don’t ever get the chance to see, and further evidence of God’s careful design. I find continual inspiration from His handiwork. For example, I love to look at chemical reactions under the microscope, which I often find while researching lessons for my class.

Tonight, I found the neatest website while researching the reaction of copper with silver nitrate, a common lab I do in my classroom. The following link shows a picture of this reaction happening at the microscopic level. It’s incredible.

I’m always amazed the more I learn about atomic structure and how finite matter is on an infinitely small scale. It just makes Psalm 139:14 ring that much more true.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

  1. I love crystals–maybe because of my name. 🙂 I am amazed at the way so many things in nature have fractal design. Like you, I see God in these things. I had to stop myself from crying in a computer intro class when they told the class that everything we see on the screen is power either turned on or turned off. I was suddenly seeing God at creation saying, “Power On!”
