The moon

Today we gazed at the full moon. The moon is just a roundish piece of old rock floating in space, relatively close to the earth. As it lazily revolves around our planet it reflects the light from the much more impressive ball of fire we call the sun.
The little bumps and ditches it has on its
surface cause the reflected light to showcase it's presence in various shades of grey, black and white - probably the most boring 'colors' you can imagine. But that beauty has inspired everything from nursery rhymes to romantic songs to horror movies.
So the next time you feel shapeless, lifeless, dark and lumpy just reflect the light of God and find yourself transformed. Inspire others and see them spend hours wishing they could watch you forever!

The One who holds the stars

Today I had the joy of leading worship in Church. I was led to use a theme which hinged on a song by Skillet called 'Stars'. This may not be a standard choice for most worship sessions, but I loved how God moved to put things together to create a fruitful time of worship at Church.
Stars - Skillet worship

“The One who holds the stars”
When we look at all the wonderful things God has created, it is wonderful that we can respond to them by worshipping Him. It blows my mind away that our God is powerful enough to create mountains and flowers and hold each star in place perfectly. It is even more amazing that this awesome God cares so much more about each one of us. We can confidently surrender our lives, our hearts, our relationships, our pains, our joys to Him and let Him be in control. We have nothing to fear. To God be the glory!
