Bible Thoughts: Psalm 19

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.”

Psalm 19 KJV

Having been fascinated by astrology and astronomy all my life and doing charts for over 30 years, this psalm has come to mean much more to me as the years go by.

We have lost our sense of wonder, have taken too much for granted. A sense of hopelessness has grown, and especially over the last twelve months.

I look at the sky and all of nature differently these days; it is truly wondrous. We are not all lost and lonely souls. We are sacred beings in a sacred creation.

Verse of the Day

“For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;”

Job 28, verse 24

Today I opened the bible randomly and pointed at this verse.

What does this verse suggest about the nature of our universe? These words and many others like this, were once truly believed.

Considering the state of our ‘civilisation’, is our supposed enlightenment benefitting us?

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” King James Bible, 1 Corinthians 15:5

How much do we know?
Who can say what is to come?
Breathe in each moment
