God’s Awesome Creation
Whenever I get frustrated with people or paperwork or staring into a computer screen, Lord, I have found respite in getting outside. How marvelous, how complex, how subtle, how perfect, how beautiful is the world you made. If I crouch down close to the ground, I can see not only the flowers but the drops of dew, the bugs crawling on the ground, and the bees doing their pollinating. I can smell earth, feel the sun’s warmth, and touch the waxy chlorophyll factories, a.k.a. leaves, that you use to grow your plants.
At night I can look up and like Abraham derive immense comfort from the stars you put there. “He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit” (Psalm 147:4,5). Great flaming gas balls in the sky—Lord, they seem to serve no purpose other than their stunning beauty in the night sky and as aids to navigation. Did you put them there just for us?
If you not only made them with a word but take inventory of them and even care enough to have a personal name for each, all 50 billion of them just in our galaxy among the billions of galaxies, well, that tells me that you are capable of keeping track of me and my life too. You are awesome.
