Here's a wholesome break for your Wednesday afternoon:
It sure is beautiful, isn't it?
Goodness, we have a lot of crazy things going on in our world, but take a moment to just soak in the wonder that's out there.
We live on this tiny rock teeming with life in the middle of a colorful expanse too endless for our minds to comprehend.
And yet we aren't just little meat robots destined to work and reproduce and die. We ponder these things. We look up at the stars and we laugh, we cry, and we dream. We are haunted by both beauty and death – and we tremble at the thought of the renewal of all things.
Eternity is in our hearts, and we cannot help but be drawn into it.
It would be a lonely place to be pitied indeed if we had this comprehension of our infinite solitude without recourse or companionship.
Perhaps the good news you need to hear is that on this little speck floating amid the heavens, you are not mere stardust and you are not alone. The One who made it all knows you by name.
"When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet..."– King David of Israel, Psalm 8:3-6
