I am so grateful for today!
Some days I am less inclined towards gratefulness, but as Psalm 118:24 states, "this is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." I can't help but rejoice on the good days and I really do feel how good He is every day; but rejoicing doesn't come easy when things are frustrating, painful, and difficult.
But today was finally a better day. And while last several weeks have been incredibly challenging physically, this describes everything to a 'T': Psalm 42:8 "By day the Lord directs His love, at night His song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life." He continually upholds me.
I've really been enjoying messages from Louie Giglio. "How Great is Our God" was exactly what I needed to hear this weekend! If you get the chance, check it out. Did you know that the biggest star in the known universe, could fit 378 quadrillion Earths? Psalm 33:6 says, "by the Word of the Lord the Heavens were made; their starry hosts by the breath of His mouth." Yeah, my mind was pretty blown too! I loved all the beautiful photos of space that he posted along with the message, absolutely stunning. The next day, I watched the one called "Indescribable" and was just as amazed and encouraged.
I'm so amazed that such a massive, star-breathing God (who as Psalm 147 says knows each one by name) would comfort me and bring me peace so constantly!
This is just cool, a beautiful expression of God's grace in all things, as Louie Giglio simply pointed out.
It's at the very center, in the black hole of a whirlpool Galaxy called "The Darling". It's called the 'X structure'
Thanks Hubble! If you want to see more of God's creation, browse around the site! Absolutely beautiful.
I know I'm not a terribly frequent blogger, but I am having surgery next Tuesday and may be absent for longer than usual.
