Psalm 8

“O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens.
2 You have taught children and infants
to tell of your strength,…
3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place….
5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God[d] and crowned them[e] with glory and honor.
6 You gave them charge of everything you made,
putting all things under their authority….
9 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
In the month of September students all across our campuses recited and learned Psalm 8 in totality. While the changing of the leaves, the temperatures falling and the cloudier skies are no surprise, the way my heart feels when I hear children recite this chapter is always surprising to me. It creates a memory of walking a trail with my parents and talking about how AMAZING God is because he created things that in their changing are SO beautiful. I now do this with my own children and it causes a stir in me to WORSHIP our king for all that he has made. We don’t always stop to truly see the wonder of our world but children do and in such a natural way. I am forever grateful that I get to see this Psalm and the world through children’s eyes each and every day. May we forever proclaim “O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!”
