what is man?

the stars are carried in the hands of the Almighty Lord, expanding and contracting, full of intense heat and intense cold, stretching across our sky in colors beyond our imagination.

the comets streaking across the sky are guided by our God, set upon their course before time was created, brilliant balls of fire and ice hurtling through space, brushstrokes of light across the starry horizon.

the clouds, the stars, the sun, the moon, the galaxies, the auroras — all tell us of God’s glory and majesty.  When we look at the heavens, the skies display the work that God has intricately, carefully, beautifully done with his own hands.

and there’s you.

there’s you, standing under the stars, marveling at the sprinklings of light that have taken thousands of years to reach you, worrying about tomorrow.

what is man, that the Lord would love him?

please, please know that against all odds, against all expectations, you are loved with a love that lasts beyond time’s boundaries.  The one who guides meteors across the sky is our God, who is on the throne, who has claimed you as his own!

“To the Lord your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it. Yet the Lord set his affection on your ancestors and loved them, and he chose you, their descendants, above all the nations—as it is today.”  
Deuteronomy 10:14-15
