Peace family, when was the last time you were really in awe of something? Something magnificent and something spectacular, something that made you feel small in the grand scheme of things?
In the last few days, we’ve had the chance to look at the first high-quality images of Pluto, and we’ve also celebrated the 46th anniversary of landing on the moon. I have always loved outer space for many reasons: the sense of adventure, the beauty of the nebulae, the complications of the mathematics involved in getting there, and the courage of the astronauts, to name a few. I love hearing stories about how a voyage to space often changes a person’s perspective forever, drawing him or her closer to the God that designed the universe, in all of its seemingly infinite bounds.
Isn’t it fun to remember that the same God who knows all of the secrets behind the stars, also knows the deepest longings and fears of our hearts? He loves you and cares for you. He is a God who makes time for you, who listens to you, and who can inspire you with the beauty of his creations and the wisdom of his order.
Peace family, let’s both take some time to really “consider the heavens” and think about the huge God we serve and how the stars reflect his majesty.
