I was driving out to my prairie farmhouse tonight in all this snow in this little car that belongs to my Mom and I had to laugh.. I was on my own personal high, looking up at the Big Dipper and just held my breath. I had to wonder can I matter in a universe that is so big and so old, so dark and so cold on this night? The fact remains that many people feel insignificant when looking up on a clear night. The psalmist, awed by what he saw, said, ‘When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars … what is man?’ (Psalm 8:3–4). He could have counted about 1,500 stars with his naked eye.
I read somewhere once that the constants of our universe just happen to be right for life. Isn’t that beautiful! Most would say they feel insignificant, I can only counter that thought with that breath taking moment when you look up on a night like this and you just know God has a purpose for each of our lives.
