Psalm 8: Awe and Wonder
A little reword of Psalm 8 for your waking mindfulness this morning:
God – you blow my mind. From infinite stars exploding in creative grandeur to the tiny cries of a defenseless new born child – the world is permeated with the weight of your presence.
When I try to comprehend it all, the landscapes of life you have painted and molded and breathed into life across the universe… the task is far beyond me.
Why would you even notice the tiny stardust afterbirth of your creative power that is me and my neighbors on earth? How are we even on your radar screen?
And yet. And YET. Not only do you see us. And know us. But you love you. You trust us. And you have empowered us as stewards of all that great mystery in which we know not what we do.
God – you blow my mind. Truly, you alone are worthy of worship, and for you, all creation gives thanks.
Amen, and amen.
