He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names - Psalm 147:4
Have you stopped recently to look up at the stars? Or have you gone somewhere that allows you to see God’s creation?
In the region I live is one of only a few places in the world to have a Dark Sky Park. Chery Springs State Park located in Potter County is a beautiful place. I have been there several times and it is worth the drive.
Listen to what Astronomer and author Jennifer Wiseman talks about how she first encountered God, and what got her interested in science.
Jennifer Wiseman – “We now understand from astrophysics that all of the elements that make up our bodies and the familiar objects around us (such as carbon, iron, and oxygen) are produced inside stars. In fact, stars are little factories that turn hydrogen and other gasses into these heavier elements, and that’s the only way we know of that these heavier elements are produced. Then these heavier elements get dispersed out into interstellar space where next generations of stars and planets pick them up. So, in some sense we are entirely products of this beautiful process within stars. As a Christian, I can’t think of a more beautiful process for God to have blessed the production of the elements that we need for life than the beauty of stars. In fact, we are told that we shine like stars in the universe. So it’s a nice cycle there.”
