    Psalm 139:7-12:


    7 Where shall I go from Your spirit,
        or where shall I flee from Your presence?
    8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
        if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there.
    9 If I take the wings of the morning
        and dwell at the end of the sea,
    10 even there Your hand shall guide me,
        and Your right hand shall take hold of me.
    11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
        and the light shall be as night about me,”
    12 even the darkness is not dark to You,
        but the night shines as the day,
        for the darkness is like light to You.

    As true in the vastness of space as it was when David penned it. 🙂 It’s comforting to know our God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent, isn’t it? 🙂

    I have the first episode on my PVR. Looking forward to this one as the author (Daniel Abraham – he wrote The Expanse under his pen name, James Corey) was at a writing conference I attended this past summer and he talked about it a bit.

    The immensity of space is truly humbling and awe-inspiring. My husband would love to get on a shuttle and go to Mars or something, not me, thank you! It freaks me out just a little – kinda like how a submarine freaks me out.

    I read the first book (Leviathan Wakes) and I’m eager to get the rest. If this show follows the book even vaguely, it’ll be fan-freaking-tastic. I wish they would hint at the monsters that appear later in the story (which was the primary draw for me), but I imagine that’s too far into the TV series. So right now, it looks like one more politics-in-space thriller. But it’s so much MORE.

  4. Your post reminded me of that movie Europa Report, which I enjoyed but the naturalistic philosophical underpinnings of the film were intriguing. The last woman standing was willing to sacrifice her life because she understood that compared to what we didn’t know in the universe, what did her life amount to?

    That insignificance factor, without the presence of a Creator who cares about us, makes all the difference.

What do you think?
