A Higher Perspective

When we think of the creation story,

it`s easy to the focus primarily on the Earth and occasionally on her sister planets.

Such a narrow perspective does not give an accurate depiction

of the awesomeness of God and His creation.

Pictures can say a thousand words,

so let’s visually explore our universe, starting with the planets in our solar system.

These planets revolve around our massive Sun

yet our Sun is pretty small when compared to Arcturus,

one of the brightest stars to be seen from the Earth.

This enormous star, Arcturus, is pretty small when compared to Antares

… which is some 700 times our Sun’s diameter.

Most of us have probably heard of the Milky Way

– the galaxy that contains our solar system.

It is believed there are 200 to 400 Billion stars and at least 100 Billion planets in the Milky Way.

Can you find planet Earth?

Can you find you?

This huge and awesome Milky Way,

is ONLY one of 100 Billion galaxies in the ‘known’ Universe.


Check out this amazing video of the universe and our place in it.

spoiler alert: we are not the centre of the universe!

 

Did all this happen by chance … or by design?

Is this the result of an uncontrolled explosion (Big Bang)

or

rather the work of someone lovingly creating a masterpiece?

 

It`s a decision we all have to make individually.

 

What does all of this say about our God?

He is the creator of the known and yet unknown Universe.

His creation shows how great and awesome He is.

And you know what?

These galaxies are nothing compared to His best creation

… YOU!

You were created in His image and you are the apple of His eye.

He has awesome plans for you.

Plans to prosper  you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.

 

DO YOU KNOW HIM?

 

He sent His son, Jesus, to help you find the way back to Him.

What’s your perspective of Him?

Do you acknowledge His presence and His majesty?

Whatever it is and whatever you believe,

just remember that ….

God is awesome and has got this whole Universe ‘thang’ in His hands.

Be Blessed.

Relationships

NOT endorsing the product but this advert is funny.

It also speaks to real life issues and shows how trivial things can get out of hand.

A few lessons learned:

1. Be careful of the ‘no go’ areas in your life and assess possible impacts on those you love .
2. It’s important to value relationships more than the things in your life.
3. One silly event can ruin relationships meant to last a lifetime
4. One bad act can outweigh ten good deeds
5. Ladies … order your own fries!

Be blessed.

When All Seems Lost

Do you look at your situation and think there is absolutely no hope?

When times get tough it’s easy to feel alone and exposed like the baby lion below BUT we must realize that, those who are for us are more than those against us.

God has said that He will never abandon you nor forsake you, so He has literally ‘got you covered’.

Take a good look at the picture below and realize that there is someone out there who will protect you in your time of need.

Never, ever give up … just be your best

Ever felt like the odds were stacked against you?

During such trying moments, there is the ‘natural’ tendency to want to give up. There is a lot of negative self talk and voices in your head telling you to give up, quit now, end it.

Well, if this describes what you are feeling right now, I encourage you to spend the next couple of minutes watching this video clip. (ps. doesn’t matter if you don’t speak French)

 

Well, well, well!!!! What do you think? I have watched this finish about 20 times.

Words that come to mind are Magnifique, Extraordinaire, Incroyable, Awesome!

The French runner’s name is Floria Guei and just to give you a little history, she was not considered top tier in this tournament … she had competed in the individual 400m race, barely got out of the heats and was eliminated in the semi-finals.

When she was passed the baton in the relay, she was in fourth place with seasoned runners ahead of her. Even the French commentators were resigned to defeat and were saying, “Mais ce n’est pas possible!”.

However, never say never … it was possible, she did it and is now the Champion of Europe.

WHAT HAPPENED?

She kept her eye on crossing the finish line and winning the race for self and country. She was focused, determined and did not look to her circumstances, but just run her race … and boy, did she run it well.

WELL, WHAT ABOUT YOU?

What race are you in? Have you been passed a crummy baton? Does it look like you are never going to win, because others are so far ahead.

Maybe you did not grow up with the right circumstances or life has dealt you a wrong set of cards and all you can see is failure around you.

Whatever it is, just realise that its not over till its over. Don’t throw you baton down and exit the race, but let your goal be to cross that finish line.

You know something, Floria, run her best time that day and I believe it was due to the adverse circumstances she faced. She dug deep and did it and you can do the same too. No matter what you are going through, look INward and look UP to God and He will ensure that you finish your race … in your best possible time.

Stay blessed or as my French friends will say it … Restez béni!
