From A Distance

I enjoy astronomy. If there is a meteor shower expected, I usually try to stay awake and look for it. It just fascinates me how God thought all of the planets, stars, and constellations through when He created everything. Not one single thing was left undone. When I saw this picture of the Earth-rise over the Moon this week, I had to gasp. This picture was taken by a Japanese spacecraft of the Moon's surface, near the Moon's north pole. The areas shown on the Earth are of the Arabian Peninsula and the Indian Ocean. How tiny we look! We all fit on this big Earth. Even more mind-boggling--God knows each one of our names and what each of us is going through.
Psalm 145:3 says, "Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom." How true! Even looking at this photo brings to mind the awesomeness of God and His unshakable love for us. It wouldn't make sense to create something so intricate and NOT love it.
Even though each one of us is one in several billion walking the Earth and going about our own business, isn't is neat to know God knows your name?

He even knows the number of hairs on our heads... How can one look at the beauty of our world, the changing leaves, the laugh of a child, the warmth of the sun, and not believe?! Thank you for your witness.
