It’s late in the night, the sky is darkening quickly, and I’m sitting inside.  Suddenly, I feel the urge to go outside…  As I wander towards the window, flashbacks of when I was a little girl come to me, and I remember lying out on the dock with my dad next to me, staring up at the glorious stars.  Now, alone, I don’t dare to breathe—as if I’ll break some sort of ‘spell’ or something.  As I open the sliding door, I catch my breath.  Outside, brilliant stars glitter around me, and I feel small—so very, very small. 

I feel insignificant.  My petty problems of the day disappear, and as I look out across the lake and at the trees, my heart skips a beat.  Here I am, standing as just an itty bitty person in an enormous world full of His creation and beauty—and I’m concerned about not getting a magazine out in time? about when I’ll finish the book I have been on for months? about when my friend will phone me back?

Because, to be honest: Who am I?  That the Lord—this Lord of ALL the earth, that God who made all these stars—would even care to know my name.  Who am I?  That this God who knows all things, would call out through the rain and calm that storm in me?  Who am I that the God who created everything would care to walk with me through life’s journey, would care to save me from all my sins by His grace?  That this God that can move mountains would live inside my heart?  That He would hear my every prayer and number every hair on my hand?  That this awesome Jehovah who knows the number of the sand on the shore in front of me would also know me from the inside out? That He would know you? I mean, what have we ever done to deserve God’s love? Because me?  I'm a flower that's fading, a grass that's withering, a wave that's tossed in the ocean, a vapour drying up in the wind.

But still, He loves you and me!So I don’t worship Him for what He has done, I worship Him for Who He is!  Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness, for He is awesome, He is majestic, He is full of power.  And yet He would take the time to know me and you!  What a Saviour!

I slip back inside, still lost in His love, and slip in to bed, worshipping Him for Who He is.
