My son called last night to tell me about a link to the International Space Station’s page where you can see live HD shots of the earth. It’s mesmerizing to see this module’s camera silently pass over this lush blue planet in real time.

Verses came to mind watching it.

From what is believed to be one of the oldest books in the Bible, the book of Job, this verse:

“He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing.” ~ Job 26:7

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.

 O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
    Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
    to still the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
    you have put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
    whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

~ Psalm 8

    Amazing! This quote fits: “For me, as a Christian believer, the beauty of the scientific laws reinforces my faith in an intelligent, divine Creator. The more I understand science the more I believe in God, because of my wonder at the breadth, sophistication, and integrity of his creation.” – John Lennox, Irish mathematician and philosopher.
