Last night I attended a show organised by the awesome pastor from our church at the Think Tank planetarium. The show was to explain to us the wonders of the universe, the stars, the galaxy’s and so much more.
It has been known that I don’t really have a scientific bone in my body, I’m sure that’s not true but I do tend to glaze over very quick when someone starts using technical terminology. It’s strange as a young child I used to love biology and at times chemistry but physics, well let’s not go there.
Anyway back to yesterday the planetarium show was amazing, I was surprised by the amount of stars that fill the universe and how much more I actually didn’t know about, shepherd moons, stars bigger than the sun and so so much more.
One of the reasons I moved away from learning about science when I was in college was the fact that I believe in an awesome God and a few tutors I have had along the way have been atheists and while I respect anyone’s opinion and always will, I struggled to listen to their version of the truth while in a learning environment.
So to hear about the stars and the wonder of the universe explained by our incredibly intelligent pastor was as they say a breathe of fresh air.
But what I really took home with me from the evening was simply WONDER.
The wonder of God’s creation.
Evan spoke of scientists who have learnt about matter and energy but cannot yet recreate it.
Have learn of the beauty of the human body, the genetic makeup of each organ and cells yet cannot breathe life into existence.
A blade of grass so simple and so perfect, we can know it, we can understand it, yet we cannot create it.
This is where I find the wonder of the universe in the unknown.
When there are no answers we find the answer.
“By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
and by the breath of his mouth all their host. (Psalm 33:6 ESV)”
God is the only answer we need.
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:3 ESV)
It is here I find my wonder.
Yes I find beauty in the nights sky
The innocent in the birth of a new baby
The world is full of beauty!
It can be found in love and laughter,
It can be found in people and friendships.
Yes the universe is full of wondrous things.
Yet for me my wonder, my awe is in my God.
