Verses that inspire


Recently several of the larger planets "lined up" to a point where earth-bound skywatchers could see all three of them in the eastern sky.

I don't know about you, but things like that evoke a response from me. I'm awestruck just to walk out on our deck and look up past the silent oaks to see thousands of stars twinkling. (We live where there are no lights to hamper our stargazing.) 

These verses come to mind as I look above: Have some verses inspired you lately?

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
Through the praise of children and infants
    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
    to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?
You have made them a little lower than the angels
    and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
    and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,
    all that swim the paths of the seas.
Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Well not a Bible verse but I was to a Christmas concert this weekend, yes I know a Christmas concert, to soon right. But there was this girl, about fifteen that sang this song called the Christmas shoes that you had me in tears. The song was about a little boy that wanted to buy a pair of shoes for his dyeing mother that soon was going to meet Jesus. A child wanted to make his mother happy before she died. Our life is so short here on earth. What do we do with our time? I look at my husband who is in pain every day and wonder how long do we have. Your bible studies are such an encouragement to me. Thanks again.

We are city dwellers, so can’t see the sky at all clearly to be able to see the stars. That is one of the many reasons that I love our summer get aways to the trees, as we call it. To be able to sit and just stare up at the vastness of all the stars, or the smallness and beauty of a butterfly. To be able to get out into the middle of God’s creation and all its glory, rather than be in the middle of a noisy crowded city. This verse from Isaiah 44:23 is how I feel when out and about in God’s creation.

Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it;
shout, O depths of the earth;
break forth into singing, O mountains,
O forest, and every tree in it!
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob,
and will be glorified[b] in Israel.
