Maybe that's why I have a hard time wrapping my head around it.
A few weeks ago I started reading Francis Chan's "Crazy Love." In the introduction or first chapter, he points the reader to a link on his crazylovebook site about the outrageous creation God designed. You can view the video here (it's super short).
When it finished I was left with these thoughts...why would God create something so vast? If we're the only living beings He created in this vastness, isn't that a waste of space?
That's the absurdity of it all. If God created just us and little old me a part of this infinitesimal speck, then surely He must love us something crazy. Otherwise we'd feel very small. But somehow this wide deep love finds us.
Funny, I've wanted to write out my thoughts on seeing just how small we are in the galaxy of galaxy's and God managed to answer that prayer thought here at Five Minute Fridays. The above captures my 5-minutes of writing. I added the links and picture after.
Have you seen that video, or something similar, before? Does the crazy creativity of God astound you too? Did you know I started a link party for Thursdays which encourages us to share how God's creativity overflows into our own lives? If you have something you'd like to link up, please visit yesterday's post and share away.
Making it Count: I want these posts to be filled with the worthy, the important, the significant. One of the ways I'll do this is by posting about a social justice issue. Up this week: tomatoes. Or rather, the people who pick them. Click here to find a super simple, super quick way you can help end modern day slavery in Florida's tomato fields.
