It amazes me how vast the universe is. It’s likely we only know a corner of the depths of the ocean and of the sky. NASA’s Kepler Spacecraft has found many undiscovered planets on its mission including Earth’s long lost cousin. This planet dubbed Kepler 425b is a little bigger than Earth and a little warmer thanks to the sun-sized star that keeps it company 1,400 light years away from our curious eyes. With the possibility of water on the surface, it could potentially host life.
Can we even begin to imagine the fullness of our Creator’s power and artistry? To think of how extensive the cosmos is reflects the measureless creativity, love and care of God. His love reaches to the heavens – that is light years of love aimed straight for you. The dance of the stars and undiscovered planets is the same dance you’re invited to – a dance of mourning to joy, unknown to known, fearful to beloved.
“When the vastness of God meets the restriction of our own humanity, words can’t hold it. The best we can do is find the moments that rhyme with this expansive heart of God.” – Greg Boyle
What else have we yet to discover – about ourselves, our world and our Father?
