I like watching television shows about the universe. I appreciate the efforts of scientists to help us understand how big the earth, sun and the planets are in relation to other objects in the universe, as well as how immense the distances are.

But I gotta admit, in spite of all their best efforts, I just can’t really comprehend it. I mean, I understand the videos and model mock-ups, but…it’s just too much for my little brain to handle. They say there are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe, and each galaxy has hundreds of billions of stars. To me, a thousand of something is a lot. I wasn’t personally familiar with over a hundred thousand dollars until we bought our third house. A million? A billion? I don’t have a million or a billion of anything. I’ve never even counted to a million and don’t intend to. So, when they start throwing around numbers like hundreds of billions, my mind goes blank.

Okay, so maybe I’m dumb. Clueless. But it seems sure that I’m faithless. I’m not happy to confess to you that whenever I’ve read the Genesis account of creation, I’ve read the following verse with a sense of, “Well, hmm, I’m not sure.”

“And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so” (Genesis 1:7).

So, I’ve asked the Father to forgive me, because it turns out that He knew what He was talking about. I’m embarrassed to even write this, but I don’t know how else to say it.

It turns out there is water “above the expanse,” and a lot of it—140 trillion times the amount of water in our oceans. The number is so huge that I can’t grasp it. Well, maybe you can. I’m on record here as confessing that I’m both dumb and unbelieving.

Here’s the article from the NASA site. Be prepared to have your jaw drop.
