I’m sharing a post I wrote a while back – one of my favorites actually. If you’re new here, I hope you enjoy it! And if you’ve seen it before, please revisit it if you feel it speaks to you. 💗
Have you ever stopped to think about how small you are in the universe?
I’m not at all trying to say we’re insignificant or don’t have a purpose. But have you ever just looked up into the sky and allowed yourself to be filled with the vastness of everything that exists?
Forget about outer space and the around 100 billion (guys, that’s 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) twinkling lights in the sky. Let’s focus only on our little planet.
There are 7.6 billion (7,600,000,000) people on our floating rock. If you live in the USA, you are one of roughly 326,481,100 people. Then narrow that down by state, then county, then city, then neighborhood, then house until it’s JUST YOU.
Feeling small yet?
Now, besides the fact that this realization can bring some healthy equilibrium to our pride, it also can be super encouraging!
Well, did you know that God has all of those stars numbered and knows them BY NAME?
And that same God knows when one, single little sparrow falls to the ground.
How much more does He care about you?
Well…did He die for the stars? Did He die for the sparrows?
He died for YOU…
And if that wasn’t enough, He knows the very number of hairs on your head. And if you’re anything like me, you know He needs to do a recount on that, like, every day. Especially when I wash my hair. (How am I not bald??)
But beyond the basic knowledge of His creation, He has a deep, all-encompassing, ever-abiding, unconditional LOVE for each and every single one of those 7.6 billion people.
He loves YOU.
And He only made one of you. In all of this huge, magnificent universe, there is only one person that can fulfill the purpose that you were designed for. Only one person that can make those specific ripples in the cosmos.
And if you’re a believer, that same Creator lives INSIDE of you. How amazing is that?
So while you may be just one…gosh! Just think about the immense potential that is wrapped up in the beautiful package that is you.
Your Creator loves you, died for you, and infused your life with amazing purpose. No star, for all its glory, has that kind of power.
It only takes a quick click! I’d love to have you! 💗
