The Heavens Declare // Photos from Hubble

19 The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the sky above[a] proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
    and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
    whose voice is not heard.
Their voice[b] goes out through all the earth,
    and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
    which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
    and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
    and its circuit to the end of them,
    and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

We're exposed to so much CGI, artwork, action motion pictures, sci fi epic movies, sometimes we forget there is a real universe out there.  I'd rather see it with my own eyes, but here we go, real photos of the actual universe.  Beautiful.  Let's hope we aren't too desensitized from the media.  Words like "glory", "eternal", "power", "majesty" and the phrase "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty" really start to come into focus...


Gazing at the images from the Hubble telescope and for the first time, really breaking past the mind-washing that it all "came together by chance" and realizing inwardly.. God made this, all of this, the images seemed to come to life, glow, and my heart knew a new kind of reverence and awe. I love you Father.
