Oh My, How All Things Are Tied Together!

As I start my day in silence and prayer, I am moved by the Psalm of the day:

O LORD, our Lord,
how awesome is your name through all the earth!
I will sing of your majesty above the heavens
with the mouths of babes and infants.
When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and stars that you set in place—
What is man that you are mindful of him,
and a son of man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him little less than a god,
crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him rule over the works of your hands,
put all things at his feet:
All sheep and oxen, even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air, the fish of the sea,
and whatever swims the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord,
how awesome is your name through all the earth!
~ Psalm 8

We have an awesome God. He created and prepared for us a home that is full of endless wonders. Every time, Anabelle and I go for a walk in nature or go on a hike, we encounter this awesome God: through the fields, by the sea, and the mountains, enjoying the soothing breezes, breathing in the crisp mountain air, accompanies by the wild denizens of the forests and fields, the birds of the air and the fish in the sea. And at the end of the day, to rest as we watch the sun set and when darkness comes to gaze at the moon and the stars. All the handiwork of this awesome God.

Then, He made me – a little less than a god, crowned me with glory and honor and declares to the rest of creation, “This is my beloved son.” Indeed, what am I that he should be mindful of me? Or, who am I that he should care for me? Or, even . . .  love me?

When walked this beautiful Earth, Jesus showed us a glimpse of this totally awesome God through his deeds and his words.

All were amazed and asked one another,
“What is this? A new teaching with authority.
He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him.”
His fame spread everywhere throughout the whole region of Galilee.
