Psalm 148: 7-13

7 Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you sea monsters and all deeps,
8 fire and hail, snow and frost,
    stormy wind fulfilling his command!

9 Mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars!
10 Wild animals and all cattle,
    creeping things and flying birds!

11 Kings of the earth and all peoples,
    princes and all rulers of the earth!
12 Young men and women alike,
    old and young together!

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his glory is above earth and heaven.

Often I wish that my head were bigger. Not physically, although I do have a smaller than average head, but in what it can understand. As a Christian there is so much about God that I will never understand and I have to accept that as part of having faith.

But just imagine for a moment that we could see God, really see. The immense wonder of being outside of time, the minute details of creativity and in every cell on earth, the overwhelming love for each creature and cycle and being.

If we could see that; then would we suddenly know how easily, how carefully, and how gladly God can help us from a place of troubles to a place of letting go?

If we could see that, then what could we do except let go of our troubles and join the earth in celebration?

 

God will we ever see you, will we ever understand you?

God please help us to imagine as best we can.

Help us to let go of the troubles that tie our eyes to the ground

so we can move on with you and see the wonder that you revel in every second.

Just for a moment, help us to see with your eyes.

 

Amen.
