Declaring His Glory

File:Universio C.jpg

Looking at the night skies always amazes me, the beauty and majesty is breathtaking!
A few years ago I competed in a speech competition and did a speech on the stars. As I studied it more and more I was blown away by the greatness of it all! But what was really amazing to me was the great vastness of it all, it's crazy how small our planet is in space.

Our planet is so small when we compare it to the sun, but then you look at the sun next to other huge stars, it is tiny!!
Our planet earth is a small part of a solar system that is 7.3 billion miles across. This solar system is a little speck in the galaxy called the Milky Way which is about 100,000 light years across. And the Milky Way is small in comparison to the billions of other galaxies! Makes me feel pretty small.

You may ask, "Why? Whats the point of all that space?" 
Well Psalm 19:1 says  "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork." It's all about God! I guess we don't have to worry about it, cause it's not about us, if it was than it would be a waste of space. But it's all about God! The heavens are just a small reflection of His glory!! All that space out there with us on a tiny spec of it tells us all about our insignificance and also all about God’s glory! He created it to shine forth His majesty and glory, and it really is AMAZING!!
Have a good night, and don't forget to thank God for His beauty we all get to share in! :)
