Day eight

""He brought me out into a spacious place, He rescued me because He delighted in me."
Psalms 18:19

I chose this verse because it really helped me to understand why I am a Christian. It really struck home that He saved us, not because of what we have done, not because we are worthy, but because He loves us.

One week down, on this crazy time scale. First was my trip home, then I had one normal day, then Nora went to Brazil for work, so I had to work over time, now, I have one normal day, then Nora and Adrian are leaving for Toronto.

He brought me out into a spacious place...

the verses in the bible that have always resonated with me, are those that speak of wild places. Because if there is a god (and I'm unconvinced), then his/her churches are the wild spaces and that is where true worship begin and ends.

It's only when we revere this planet and all that exists on it that we can truly honour and worship a creator... again, assuming there is one.

Very interesting. It is true about the wild, I felt close to God in the mountains, and could really see His power, and magnificent creations.
