Sometimes you just need to put the book down, step away from the computer, and give yourself some space to be awed again by how amazing God is.
As Walt Whitman said in his famous poem about astronomy and the wonder of the universe:
When I heard the learn’d astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.
……………..~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, 1900
Whitman is, of course, talking about the danger of focusing so much on the data of science that we miss the mystery and wonder of the universe itself. How much more is this true for those who seek to know God himself.
Take this as a timely reminder to let yourself be awed by him today.
