Perspective

It always amazes me how small things look when we take a step back.... This photo was taken on a trip to Europe.. One cold, crisp morning my mom and I trekked up on of the highest buildings in Paris and took this awesome shot of the Eiffel tower. Funny how this colossal monument suddenly  fit between my fingers. 

This really let me think of Psalm 8 v 4-7. Isn't it amazing how He cares for us, loves us and knows us by name, even though we really are so small?  In our world man has placed so much emphasis on self importance, self preservation and " I" .... I-Phone, I-pod, I........ ...may we take a step back, let go of self.. and realize we are significantly insignificant, and not so big after all. 

Psalm 8 v 4-7

"When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, 
  The moon and stars that you set in place- 
  What is man that you are mindful of him, 
   and the son of man that you care for him?
   Yet you made him a little less than a god, 
  crowned him with glory and honor.
  You have given him rule over the works of your hands, 
   put all things under his feet."

  1. Amen! To find our true identity we have to lay down our lives and find it in Christ.

    1. Amen to that! Jer 29 v 23-24
      "Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
      or the strong boast of their strength
      or the rich boast of their riches,
      24 but let the one who boasts boast about this:
      that they have the understanding to know me,
      that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
      justice and righteousness on earth,
      for in these I delight,”
      declares the Lord.
