Gospel: John 5:25-29
Evening Psalms: Psalms 34

DEVOTIONAL


He has delineated tiny details of our lives,
Mapped out like DNA before our eyes are even formed to see
The depths of the Grand Canyon, or the width of the sea, or to count
Your tiny fingers and toes and eyelashes.

God’s Majesty: both marvelous and unknowable to me
As the books I will have left unread and the songs I will have left unheard.
Unknowable as the number of stars that have ever existed
Or the number of ideas, or of kisses.

The more I explore, the more I learn, the more I love,
The more I want to explore, to learn, and to love.
The wonders of the Lord are infinite. 
In all of our lifetimes we could not begin to understand them all.

But we are given the amazing gift of basking in the beauty of His creation
Like turtles on a log, soaking up the power of God’s love, thankful
That he gives us the means to experience even a fraction
Of a fractal of His majesty.
