30 Days of Thankfulness

Day 9: 30 Days of Thankfulness

The sun set on yet another chilly day. The summery oranges and yellows and rosy pinks were replaced by a deep blue color . The moon shone brightly and the stars speckled in their positions. Night set once again. 

I love star-gazing. I love the realization that those stars that seem like tiny little specks are actually suns. I am an invisible speck to that sun. Each star was hand-placed into the sky by the hand of God. The moon shines just so on the Earth. It really is amazing. 

I’ve always been so curious as to how science claims that the perfect conditions came perfectly together at the right time, with the perfect amount of heat and light and just the right amount of elements that everything perfectly became their own planets and suns and atmospheres. How? How could it have been possible that everything was completely handcrafted by reactions? I can’t possible imagine that everything came together on its own. That’s why science boggles my mind, but God makes it clearer. God placed everything in it’s perfect place, and created the perfect conditions for the planets and suns and atmospheres and dirt and grass and water to form. How, just how, could that of happened on its own? It couldn’t. God placed it all. 

Today, I am thankful that God handcrafted everything so beautifully; from the stars to the dirt. From suns to water. He created it all so perfectly, not accidentally, that we are able to sustain life on this planet. I am thankful that I am able to enjoy each and everyone of these miracles on a daily basis. 

“Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all stars of light! Praise Him, highest heavens, And the waters that are above the heavens! Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded and they were created. He has also established them forever and ever; He has made a decree which will not pass away.” Psalm 148: 3-6

Names of Our God
