When I Consider...

Psalm 8:3-5
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?
5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

The last two weeks haven't been full of a lot of contemplation. The kids have been out of school so we're spending some time at the pool and the park. I've been taking every other weekend off from preaching at the church and even gone from the church a couple of Sundays. My daily routine has loosened to include a few mornings lingering in bed and watching cartoons with my kids, Joyce Meyer with Jayme, and ESPN just for me. This will soon change as school starts again in two weeks and our family's life boundaries tighten again. But for now, life has been a little laid back and I haven't really pressed in to anything recently.

But last night I visited one of my pastor friend's church and worship was awesome! I didn't realize how thirsty I has become for God's presence. My devotions have been very dry. My prayer life has been dispassionate. So it's like I have just downshifted and set things on cruise control. But I don't do well when the RPMs of my life are down. So I being to consider....

I think about what an honor it is to be a dad. I think about what a priviledge it is to have friends. I can't even begin to explain how blessed I am to be a husband to the wonderful woman God has given me. I think about the trust He has placed in me in calling me to shepherd. God has truly crowned me with glory and honor. And I'm left to wonder why I have recieved this attention. So again I drawn into worship, my only response to the contemplation of God's goodness. How excellent is Your name in all the earth.
