I wish I could capture the moon tonight on camera.
A few minutes ago while I was downstairs locking up, I caught a glimpse out the window of how incredibly bright our yard lit up. So once up in our room, I went out on our balcony. There are just some moments in your life that you can't even put the beauty into words.
As I stood there, looking into the sky at the moon and stars, I felt so close to God. Yet as I looked around at all the houses and lights that surround our home, I was reminded how small I really am. (Even though I don't always feel that small, but this isn't a post about my diet.) It's just so unfathomable, this constant contradiction in our lives.
God created the heavens and the earth. He created the amazing planets. He created life. Life that astounds even the wisest men, every day.
And God created me. He created the tiniest little beings that, to the outside world, seem to have no significance at all. And yet He cares about every one of us.
The God that created those same stars I was just gazing upon, created me.
Now I know I am not stumbling upon any new form of thought here. It just never fails to astonish me.
Even in the moments I feel so small, so unimportant, so uncared for- the Creator of the universe will always be the God who created me. My problems don't change that. Even my doubts don't change that. I will always be a creation of the God Most High.
I need to view myself as His creation a little more often. I'm not saying I need to have more pride because there is definitely enough of that in this world. But I need to be satisfied with His work. A work in progress for sure! ;) But His work, nonetheless. One day, not long from now, He will lift me into Heaven and His work in me will be completed.
