This morning my dog decided we needed to stretch our legs a little earlier than usual. I couldn't help but be amazed at the clear night sky, just full of stars and planets! The moon shone bright and there was a hint of the white fog of the Milky way cluster present. It made for quite an inspiring visual! As the vastness of this scenery took hold of my thoughts, I couldn't help but have an epiphany. How arrogant must mankind be to assume we even have an iota of how this all works? The orb we live on is but a pinhead of a speck in the universe. The expanse of the cosmos is so immense we define it as infinite, because we have no other term and it exceeds our imagination. Just like our Creator, the artist of this masterpiece, the whole concept is beyond the grasp of our capabilities to comprehend.
It's easy to come to a conclusion of insignificance when we are place against the magnitude of God's creation. But that would be a flawed assumption as each and everyone of us is of a special design. A design that is here for a purpose, a purpose we need to fulfill. While we seem small in the sum of the whole, the whole cannot exist without our participation, and the completion of our role as designed by the Grand Master. The engine will not run unless every nut, bolt, and washer is in place, and while it may seem like we don't matter in the grand scheme of things; the execution of our purpose serves to bring fruition the end result. You, and the reason you were put on the third rock from the sun, matter. Go and serve your purpose!
