I’m inspired by Chris Hadfield’s rendition of David Bowie’s song, Space Oddity. Listening to the words to this song, I remember my utter powerlessness and depend more completely on God’s providence, his plan for humanity since time began; dependence on Him, love for Him, faith in Him. The world is in His hands and it is through these three things that the purpose of life is revealed.
Lord, thank you for reminding me of my need for you. So often I rely on my strength to accomplish everyday goals and forget that you are the power that gives me that strength. May your will be done.
