Last night I went to youth. I'm starting to really enjoy the youth group at warden. I think it's because of the fellowship, and the time spent with some of my best friends, or because of the worship, the group prayer, or the little topic that Pastor Mark speaks on every week, but it's definately become a weekend pick-me-up. I look forward to it so much because it renews me, it allows me to shake of all of that stress, and worry that has accumulated during the week. There is something about spending that time focusing in on God with people that you like that just is "cleansing for the soul" haha... if I may say.

Anyways, with that said. This week Pastor Mark had a really good message. We took the time to go through Psalm 19 in the bible.

The Heavens tell of the glory of God.
The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.

They speak without a sound or a work;
their voice is silent in the skies;
yet their message has gone out to all the earth,
and their words to all the world.

The sun lives in the heavens where God placed it.
It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding.
It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race.

The sun rises at one end of the heavens
and follows its course to the other end.
Nothing can hide from its heat

And as Pastor Mark was talking about just realizing the wonder of God by just looking around us, that last verse just popped out at me.
When David was writing this Psalm, I don't think he was just describing the sun; how it rises and sets every day. But I think he was referring to Jesus and his faithfulness. Nothing can hide from HIS heat. In other words, We can't hide from Jesus. He's always there, with us. It's wonderfully reasuring.

Just a thought

i really liked this post, and i really liked this psalm.. i've read it many times but something about seeing it someplace other than in the page of a Bible makes it feel so poetic and cool!
