“If the Stars Were Made to Worship So Will I”

When we think about the creation of the universe, we so often forget how absolutely mind-blowing it actually is. It’s easy to forget that God created the heavens and the earth in 7 days, and that the universe was formed immediately when God spoke life into it.

When we think about the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, they are all individually here because God wanted them to be. The trees in your front yard and the clouds above you are, again, created perfectly by our heavenly father. Crazy, right?

The lyrics of one of my favorite worship songs by Hillsong United talks about the beauty of God’s creation. In the song, it says,

“If the stars were made to worship so will I

If the mountains bow in reverence so will I

If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I

For if everything exists to lift You high so will I

If the wind goes where You send it so will I

If the rocks cry out in silence so will I

If the sum of all our praises still falls shy

Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times.”

Everything that God has created was made to display his beauty and power. The stars, the mountains, the oceans, the wind… they are all formed with distinct differences and purposes. This includes us. God created us like he created the stars in the sky. Each uniquely different, even among the other 7 billion people on this planet.

If God would take the time to make each star in the sky unique and perfect, why would he not do the same for you? Even the smallest details were perfectly hand crafted by our heavenly father himself. Pretty crazy when you think about it!

“For if everything exists to lift you high so will I.” We need to remember who we’re here to serve on this earth. It isn’t the cute boy in your class or the friend you’re trying to impress. We exist because of HIM and we live to obey and serve HIM!

Job 12:7-10 says, “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”

I love this verse and its message. We get to walk alongside God’s creations every single day! Whether that be walking with your best friend to class or taking your dog for a walk. We get to experience the joys and wonders of the world every day during every second!

If God created the stars to worship, we too should rejoice and praise him. If God created the mountains to bow, we too should take up our cross and follow him. If God created the wind to go where he sends it, then we too should go where he commands us!

There are so many lessons we can learn by simply looking at the world around us. Never forget the amazing, mind blowing power that God has and how he used that power to create YOU! Rest in this, and praise him for his incredible creations. 🙂

If you’re like me, then you love finding beautiful places to explore, especially when you didn’t even know they existed!  I always scroll through Tumblr and Instagram and find the most beautiful spots that I can add to my bucket list.  Here are five that you should add to your own “must-see” list!

  • Garden of the Gods – Colorado Springs, Colorado.  If you’ve never been, this place is amazing!  It’s filled with huge rocks and trees surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains.  If you want a good photo op, then this is the spot for you!   
  • Tamanawas Falls – Mt. Hood National Forest, Oregon.  If you want to submerge yourself in nature, visit this jaw-dropping waterfall.  It’s a big of a trek to get there, but it’s so worth it!Chelsea Crockett - Fort Jefferson
  • Fugitive Beach – Rolla, Missouri.  This place isn’t the most well-known in the country, but where I’m from, it’s a go-to hotspot!  People around the St. Louis area love to go there to hang with friends and even cliff jump!
  • Blue Lakes – San Juan Mountain, Colorado.  You’d never think that this blue of water actually exists in Colorado, but you’d be surprised at how vibrant the water is!  It’s so pretty and the mountains are an added perk.
  • Fort Jefferson – Key West, Florida.  Fort Jefferson is a historic landmark that’s been around for decades and is now a beautiful tourist destination!  Look at the picture to the right to see for yourself!

Which spots do you want to visit?  Share with me in the comments below!

The world is crazy beautiful. It contains the most gorgeous places full of diversity and cultures.  Getting to experience what the world has to offer is so important!  Some people may think “Why travel?”  But I think “Why not travel?”  If you get the chance, go out, explore, and soak in the world!Chelsea Crockett- cliffs of Greece

God did a pretty great job when creating nature. Between Niagara Falls, the Great Barrier Reef, and the cliffs of Greece, the world is full of never-ending sights!  Traveling is also so important when it comes to experiencing different cultures and meeting people from other countries.  It’s such an eye opener to see how other people live their lives.  See if your school offers opportunities for travel, like studying abroad or spring break trips!  Going on mission trips is also a great way to see the world and get to help people at the same time!

Always take advantage of any opportunity you have to travel. The world is so amazing!

Love,

Chelsea

Exercising in nature is such an enjoyable experience. Hearing the birds chirp, feeling the sun on your face and the breeze on your back, there is nothing better! There are so many benefits of exercising in nature, and here are a few!

  1. Fresh air has more oxygen!fit_tip_outdoors-LFR-05122014
  2. More sensory stimulation: you are more stimulated, which means that your run is more enjoyable!
  3. Increases feelings of well-being and lowers depression! Those endorphins get you pumped full of happy feelings and make you feel super good!
  4. Vitamin D exposure: When you are exercising outside, the sun increases your vitamin D exposure and helps optimize hormones! And, as you ladies well know, us teenage girls need all the hormone optimizing we can get!

Working out in the great outdoors is as good as it gets. Running on the treadmill at the gym just isn’t the same, am I right? Go outside and take a walk with a friend or go for a swim. Your body will thank you!
