I think God's creation is just wonderful, isn't it? The vibrant colours, the very intricacy of His creativity - is just awe-inspiring! (Especially when considering how very small and seemingly "insignificant" one flower is on one planet in one galaxy and so on....)
On the same note...
Two nights ago, one of my friends and I had a slumber party at my house (which was, of course!, a lot of fun :D). Around midnight or so, we bundled up in blanket and bathrobe, taking pillows and a blanket to spread out beneath us, a Bible, and a flashlight, and set out for my back yard. It was a crystal clear night, and the stars were indescribably beautiful. I read first, and found in my reading Psalm 134 (which I'll type out later on) As I was reading, I realized in a new way that out there, that that is God's "house", God's "sanctuary"! And it's kind of strange to think that the light from the stars I see now is actually the light that was shining during Abraham's time (or perhaps before!) and is just now reaching us. And do you ever think about the fact that some of the stars you may see tonight probably may not even exist anymore! Then...to realize that God is bigger than all that. Yet, He loves... a deeper and more tender love than I can ever emulate...me...you. And He didn't stop there - He actually chose to send His Son to die for us. Us. We puny little human beings. I cannot fathom how anyone can look up at such a brilliant sky like the other night and still deny the existence of the One who created him or her. It has to take more faith to believe that there isn't a God, than to believe that there is. And then, how can I become so burdened down with my so-called "troubles" - I mean, they're so small in comparison to my great God. Yet, Jesus says He actually wants to hear my cares, my problems - no matter how big or small. (I Peter 5:7) - "Casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.") Jesus is amazing.
All praise and glory, give to Jesus Christ - Saviour.
Behold, bless ye the Lord,
all ye servants of the Lord,
which by night stand in the house of the Lord.
Lift up your hands in the sanctuary,
and bless the Lord.
The Lord that made heaven
bless thee out of Zion.
