“O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!...When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the starts you have set in their courses, what are mere mortals that you should be mindful of them, human beings that you should care for them.” Psalm 8 vv. 1, 3-4
Ever since we have moved here, people have asked us, ‘do you like it here?’ And I can truthfully answer that I am loving it here. Not only because we are enjoying our ministries at Calvary & Holy Apostles, and being so close to our granddaughters, but also because I never tire of looking at the wonder and beauty of the world that God has created which is so very evident here in the valley.
Every day, as I drive into Scottsbluff from Mitchell, the Monument brings a smile to my face and a sense of wonder and thankfulness to my heart.
So, I can truly resonate with the writer of Psalm 8. As beautiful and vast as God’s creation is, it is truly amazing and humbling that God cares for us—each of us—and has made us stewards and co-creators with God of this world and of each other.
So, the next time you’re out enjoying the beauty of this world that God has created; don’t just give thanks to God for the wonder of the world around, let it also be a reminder to you of how much God loves and cares for you!
“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”
