These pictures help remind me of my small place in God's Universe. While that is true, the amazing thing is that at the same time, I am priviledged with a very large place in His heart and mind. He knows all there is to know about me, and I will never know all there is to know about Him this side of eternity--and even then, I don't know how it would be possible.
I was reminded earlier today of a practice of mine that my wife, Vicky, finds annoying at times. When we're driving in the car, listening to music, if we get to the destination many times I will sit and wait until the song or verse we're listening to is over. I NEED the resolution of the thought, of the music. I NEED to hear those final chords for it to be resolved in my mind and heart.
This need for resolution sometimes affects my relationship with God for there are times when I need Him to resolve--to make sense to my mind. In circumstances, in prayer, in hardships, I want to know the end, the result, the purpose. My mind and heart craves for God to "wrap it up". But that's not the kind of God I live for--He is under no obligation to resolve things for me. He only calls me to trust Him--trust His character, trust His holiness, trust His love for me. I admit this is often difficult--our world doesn't always make sense, nor my circumstance in it. I cannot fully get my mind around our Creator who holds the stars in their place.
Thank you Lord, for your reminders of Your Greatness. I await Your Resolution.
