Stick out your tongue.
Can you catch a snowflake?
That one tiny snowflake-
Made from up to two-hundred separate snow crystals
Formed around a speck of dust.
The snow crystals fell
Clumping together to form that one small snowflake.
Can you catch another and another and another and another?
Let’s count them all!
God formed and knows each one.
Look how beautiful.
Scoop up some snow.
Can you make a snowball?
It fits in your hand.
God holds you in His hand.
“Even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.” –Psalm 139:10
The vast universe is tiny to God.
If our galaxy was the size of North America,
Our solar system would be a snowball,
The earth just one tiny snow crystal that joined together to make one tiny snowflake.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” –Psalm 8:3-4
Our God is so great!
Beyond our comprehension-
Yet He cares for You and me.
The speck of dust.
“for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.” –Psalm 103:14
It amazes me- the magnificence of God, yet His love for the tiny dust that I am! I want my kids to see this great mystery. So that they fall in awe at His feet.
How can you teach the awe of God today?
What “tiny” things can you find to show of our great big God?
