Unfortunately .. I am a moody fella and being moody my wife tells me is not one of my endearing qualities. I have low moments where my introspection GOES ROGUE leaving my self worth a bit tattered.
Just a couple weeks ago I was in one of those funks, but am happy to report I am 'prayerfully' doing much better. Then a fragment of a scripture came to mind which led me to a Google search locating.. Psalms 8:3-5.
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 4 Who is man that You are mindful of him, ... 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
Mindful of me? You see this is my struggle. I believe in God, as from the micro level cellular miracles of our bodies to the infinite world of the Cosmos it all screams to me.. THERE MUST BE A CREATOR.
But for me it is more work to realize this amazing creator cares about me. Who is Jeff that God is mindful of him.
So at least for the day, the clouds have parted and I see God as my Heavenly Father, mindful of me. The great creator of all loves me, and I like that.
This song is the full circle relationship with God as He intends. No matter if I am lost in introspection or feeling invincible I will need of compassion, kindness, and love of the God of our Bibles. He is that loving Father, He is Jesus our Savior, and He is the Holy Spirit who brightens up any DARK and/or hopeless situation. Our God is mighty to Save.
May God bless each of you (and me) where the realization of a Savior who moves mountains, and is mindful of each and every one of us.
