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.

  2. That’s a nice way to share yourself.
    I know a place i Alberta where it’s so quiet all you can hear is your heartbeat and celestial music.

    We are all made of stardust. It sounds like a line from a poem, but there is some solid science behind this statement too: almost every element on Earth was formed at the heart of a star. AND yes you are a romantic and that is a good thing!

    What is my vision of God’s purpose for me? Whatever it may be, His purpose is for me to depend on Him and on His power now. If I can stay calm, faithful, and unconfused while in the middle of the turmoil of life, the goal of the purpose of God is being accomplished in me. Beautiful words Estee.
