LOOKING FOR WONDROUS THINGS
Thursday, May 22, 2008
“For thou art great, and doest wondrous things.”
In a way, the passage above is not all that surprising. We know that amazing events do happen now and then – events that are so remarkable as to elicit disbelief. Fabulous things occasionally occur – a winning lottery ticket, an unbelievable sunset, a marvelous phone call from an old friend. Every so often the unbelievable enters our lives like an explosion of goodness. However, what I want to think about today is the truth that the above passage implies – that wondrous things are happening all the time. The psalmist is suggesting that the miraculous and the astonishing are woven into the very cloth of life. The Universe (the power the psalmist calls “thou”) is magnificent and does stupendous things every second All things are astounding. Each moment is a new birth that should bring amazement and bewilderment to my heart. I should walk around in a daze of incredulity.
