Another week has flown by and this Monday school will be starting here in Huntsville. Wow! The summer is officially over. People are coming back to town and life is getting back into more of a schedule. We’re not sure what it is, but we’ll soon find out.
Many of the regular weekly programs of the church will get into full swing. Small groups will start functioning more…and we’ll officially get into one. The women’s ministry will start up and I’m looking forward to being a part of the Thursday morning Bible study. I don’t have my weird job schedule to work around! At least not so far.
I’m working on some changes on my blog including some changes in emphasis. How all the details of that will play out, I’m not certain, but I’m excited to see.
So, on this gloomy, misty day that feels like Seattle instead of Huntsville, I’m writing for Five Minute Friday, a day late! For the rules, which you most likely know, and other writers, just follow this link.
That’s how I feel when I think about my BIG GOD!
I don’t often do that, well, not as much as I need to.
I often think about my circumstances and how impossible they are.
How small my resources are.
How hopeless a solution is.
On a day-to-day basis, I forget to stop and think about how huge GOD is!
This is the creator of the universe.
The one who flung out the stars with his hand.
Who spoke it into being.
Whose very words brought light into a dark, empty place.
The one who created the concept and actuality of DNA
So complex and impossible to see for many years.
It seems his fingerprint is everywhere.
The more we magnify our microscopes and look into the cell, the more detail we find.
No matter how much magnification we get on our telescopes, we can’t find an end to the universe
Just more and more and more stars and galaxies. STOP
Yet the very people who find these details try to find some other explanation for them than the creator GOD.
I don’t get it.
And that is only one aspect of His greatness.
His character of being holy and just yet merciful and longsuffering…
All in perfect balance?
I get only glimmers of understanding what that is like!
But the process of trying to think about it makes me understand who I am
small. very, very small!
O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.
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?
