Wondering out among the stars on this insomniac night. After three long days my mind will not submit to sleep; so I rise in a half dream state taking in the beauty of the universe, floating on a forever path watching all the lovely gifts my God has created for us in secret. But man has grown in knowledge to send a telescope into outer space to spy on what lies deeper ~ and it’s exquisite splendor!
Lord, Lord! Thank You for your awesome love that has created us, and the toys in space You have made for our pleasure to discover and admire in awe. What a staggering awareness! You have done so much for us! From the wonder of our physical bodies that You designed so perfectly to the stunning understanding you have of our needs and Your provision for them in our souls. You have given us Yourself in Jesus for salvation ~ Your plan to redeem us carried out with utter love. You have laid within us the door for an intimate relationship with You. You provided and it’s up to us to pursue it.
How wondrous You are ~ the epitome of loving kindness, the great gift-giver! You, my God, are huge beyond our ability to comprehend, yet You look upon us as Your very own kids whom You care about with the deepest of love. Thank You. On this day when we as a nation celebrate a day dedicated to thanksgiving for all our many blessings, we give You thanks! We bow our heads before You, our Creator God, with a joy in our hearts as we recognize You as Father, as Abba. From the deepest place within our very selves comes a tsunami of thanksgiving to You.
