Can you direct the movement of the stars— binding the cluster of the Pleiades or loosening the cords of Orion? Do you know the laws of the universe? Can you use them to regulate the earth?” (Job‬ ‭38‬:‭31, 33‬ NLT)

Only 25,000 light-years away, the Quintuplet Cluster is one of the Milky Way’s most spectacular sights. According to Listverse.com, the cluster is akin to a cosmic kindergarten—full of young, brightly shining stars. This area of space is also very densely packed, with stars located within punching distance of each other. The center of the Milky Way is obscured by patches of white-hot gas and dust. Thus, the Quintuplet Cluster remained hidden until 1990 when astronomers were able to peer through the shroud using infrared imaging.

We like to think we control our lives and keep everything in order, but we deceive ourselves. Just like we can’t order or control the heavenlies, neither can we orchestrate what will happen today or tomorrow, keeping ourselves safe or happy. Only God has complete control of all things around us because He sees it all.

So, relax and live! Come to church today knowing that Where God directs you, He will always take care of you. Short of creating your own meltdown, you’ll be fine when you let God direct your stars! True control belongs to Him! You are loved today!

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?” (Isaiah 40:26 NIV)

According to Discovery.com, the Hubble space telescope has seen some strange things in deep space, but this most recent find is possibly one of the strangest: the six-tailed comet… or is it an asteroid? The object — called P/2013 P5 — was discovered in August by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii, an observation that baffled astronomers, due to the fact that they’ve never seen this phenomenon before.

The galaxy is full of astounding things, too complex to have been an accident. It’s not so hard to see that the Creator of the incredible human body also created the starry host above us. It’s only because our minds cannot handle the immensity of Life and is left with more questions than answers that we find solitude in Chance, because we’d rather sweep things under the rug than deal with complexities beyond our control.

So here’s some good news: We’ve never been in control! God has! Allow the Keeper of the Stars & Humanity the credit to continue doing a great job while we do ours, and that’s to live a life in love and fascination with Him! And one day, maybe soon, He’ll take each one of us home and show us exactly what’s out there! You are loved! Have a great weekend!
