Feeling insignificant?

sea-of-facesDo you feel small and insignificant to God? Just a face in the crowd? Lost in the big picture?

Go to this site, place your computer’s cursor in the mass of people and double-click a  couple of times. Scary sharp!!  Not so easy to hide in a crowd anymore.

This was from an email sent to me by my Aunt.  The picture was taken with a 70,000 x 30,000-pixel camera  (2100 Mega  Pixels.)  These cameras are not sold to the public and are being  installed in strategic locations. The camera can identify a face among a multitude of people.

If the camera technology we’ve now got can pick you out of a crowd, how much more can God?

Did you know God saw you and wrote about you before you were even conceived?  It’s there in Psalm 139, and it says that God’s thoughts outnumber the grains of sand.

I’ll leave you with one of my favourite songs by Kutless, Sea of Faces.  Enjoy, and remember that as far as God’s concerned, you’re to die for.

“I see the city lights all around me
Everyone’s obscure
Ten million people each with their problems
Why should anyone care
And in Your eyes I can see
I am not just a man, vastly lost in this world
Lost in a Sea of Faces
Your body’s the bread, Your blood is the wine
Because you traded Your life for mine
Sometimes my life it feels so trivial
Immersed in the greatness of space
Yet somehow you still find the time for me
It’s then You show me Your love
And In Your eyes I can see
And in Your arms I will be
I am not just a man, vastly lost in this world
Lost in a Sea of Faces
Your body’s the bread, Your blood is the wine
Because you traded Your life for mine
If only my one heart
Was all you’d gain from all it cost
Well I know you would have still been a man
With a reason
To willingly offer your life
I am not just a man, vastly lost in this world
Lost in a Sea of Faces
Your body’s the bread, Your blood is the wine
Because you traded Your life for mine
Just one in a million faces” – Kutless

Grains of sand

Do you see what’s hidden?

The sand at Cobham Beach in Florida where my husband comes from is the whitest sand I’ve ever seen.  As far as sand goes we’re polar opposites.  The sand at my beach, 8000 miles away on the west coast of the North Island of NZ, is the blackest.

Grains of sand magnified

Here’s a thought; White, black, red, and gold – the sand has different colours, just like us.

I love Psalm 139, it speaks of God knowing us.  He knows us individually, and our days were written in His book – even before we came to be.

Did you know the grains of sand outnumber us, and God’s thoughts outnumber the grains of sand?

“How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand”  Psalm 139:17-18

remember-me-sand-sculpture-14531294802839hJlHave you ever seen grains of sand magnified?  God crafted each grain of sand to be unique and beautiful.

Think of that if you feel insignificant or believe that you don’t matter to God.

Psalm 139-17,18
