God is big.
Like really really big.
This may sound obvious to most, but as I was driving home today I had this simple but important reminder. Let me back up a bit…
As long as I can remember I have always been in awe of God’s creation. I have had this awestruck fascination with the clouds and the sky, I could honestly just stare up for hours at the heavens on a clear day, marveling at the wonder and whimsy of it all.
Another fascination of mine is the beach. The vastness of the ocean and the roar of the waves. I don’t think my mind can fully comprehend the hugeness of the One who created it all.
The same goes for the stars. I LOVE the stars. This sounds extremely silly but when I lived in the city I would often (on my lowest of low days) cry because I couldn’t see the stars. I know, I know, it all seems a bit babyish, but I grew up in a place where you could always see the stars at night. I took great comfort in this and truly feel most connected to God when I can see His hand at work in His creations.
So back to today. Here I was driving alone in my car thinking about things, everything (you have a lot of time to do that when you live in the middle of nowhere.) when I started to worry. Worrying about life, our future, our finances. You know, the normal stuff that people worry about… when all of a sudden I noticed the sky.
To some people maybe it was just another nice partly cloudy day, but to me it was unreal. I was blown away (no pun intended) at the clouds that looked almost hand painted onto the blue canvas of the sky. In that moment I knew not only the hugeness of our Creator, but the smallness of all these things I had been worrying about.
God has a funny sense of humor doesn’t He?
I had just spent a good chunk of time worrying about silly things that really don’t even matter because I serve a huge God.
A huge God that has huge promises.
Can I get an Amen?! :)
