When I Consider...

When I consider your


the work of your fingers

the moon and the stars,

which you have set in


what is man that you are

mindful of him

the son of man that you

care for him?

PSALM 8:3-4

It has been a while since I've participated in Monday Manna. When I read the verse for this week, several of my photos came to mind, so I decided to illustrate the verse instead of expound on it. After all, "a picture is worth a thousand words," right?

I am often reminded of this verse when I am out experiencing God's creation. It fills me with a sense of awe, as well as thankfulness that I can boldly approach the throne of our great God, creator of the universe, knowing that He knows and loves me intimately. Why does He love me? Because of who He is, not because of anything I could ever do! Simply incomprehensible!

For more thoughts on this verse, visit Joanne's blog, An Open Book.


  1. I LOVE this, Sharlyn! The pictures capture this verse in a very meaningful way. Thanks so much for participating!

  2. Great photos...a creative way to illustrate a beloved verse. Good job!

  3. Wow! The pictures say it all. Awesome!

  4. Just love your approach Shar! The pics do say it all but the framework are your words. I love the image of approaching our Creator Father without fear because we know Him so personally. Awesome!

  5. very cool. i love it, and the fact that you took the pics makes it even better.

  6. Wonderful photos! I, too, sense God's goodness and power most clearly when I look at the beauty of His creation. I would hate to be an atheist, even if its repercussions were only for this life. How much joy they deprive themselves of!

  7. Beautiful photos and beautifully links to the verses! Thanks so much for sharing this today!!:)
    It is a wonder...God's love for us...

    Happy Monday!
