Keep looking up!

The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
    The skies display his craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
    night after night they make him known.

They speak without a sound or word;
    their voice is never heard.
Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
    and their words to all the world.
Psalm 19

Look up!  You stand on the floor of one of the best observatories in the Universe.  From this vantage point God shows mankind his power, glory and great creation.  

What an amazing sight to see....a Universe larger than we can measure on display for us to say, "Wow, I wonder who made all this?"  And in reply God says, "I did!  Isn't it grand?"

Look up, praise the God who made all you see...and made you too.  He is the God who made heaven and earth.

Hello Pastor Mike Messerli. So good to know you through your profile on the blogger. I am also glad to stop by your blog post and go through your devotional on keep looking up. It is a very encouraging post reminding us of the Creator who created this universe so beautifully where heavens declars to glory of God. I am also so much touched by the very title of your blog " Finishing Well". Well I am in the Pastoral ministry in the great city of Mumbai, India for last 35yrs and I am on the retiring side of the ministry and the title of your post touched me and the Lord spoke to me that I have to finish well. Thank ou for this message too. Well the city where I have been Pastoring for last 35yrs is a city with great contrast where richest of rich and the pooret of poor live. We reachout to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We also encourage young and the adults from the West to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. We would love to have young and the adults from your church to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. I am sure they will have a life changing experience. God willing I will be coming to the States in the month of June and will he so glad to visit you and share with you about the ministry we have amongst poorest of poor. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot0com and my name is Diwakar Wankehede. Looking forward to hear from you in near future. God's richest blessings on you,your family and ministry.
