When I was a kid we played a game in basketball called: Around the World
Maybe you’ve played it.
Then I grew up. I’ve had the opportunity to travel around the world. And I realized the game never did justice to its name.
Every time I travel – the world gets bigger. My understanding and view of God expands.
I saw this video – a beautiful time lapse video from all Around the World. I’m moved to pray as I watch it unfold. To pray for the people in these countries that their awareness of God’s love break into their ‘world’ in fresh ways. It reminds me that the ‘world’ is much BIGGER than ‘my world.’ It excites me. It humbles me.
Before you watch: remember this –
1 The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters. ~Psalm 24:1
Now – pause…
Let the beauty and magnitude of what you just watched sink in.
The God who created all that. Created you. He loves you.
He loves people. Those that know him and those searching to know him…
He went to extreme lengths and the ultimate end to proclaim His love for you.
He now desires us to echo that love so all may know.
People around your world.
People in your country.
People around the corner.
