According to Mario Livio, an astrophysicist at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore there most likely could be between 100 billion and 200 billion galaxies out there in space.  It is also estimated there could be 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone.  I could not even start to try and figure out how many stars that means there are out in space.  The number makes my brain spin.  We need to keep in mind that God made them all and placed them in space, not randomly, but each one carefully and wonderfully positioned.

    Psalms 139:13 says, “Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;  you formed me in my mother’s womb.” (The Message)  If the sheer number of stars He made and positioned is not mind boggling enough, He also made me and you.  He shaped us and formed us with the same skill used to make the heavens.  I, and you, are a creation of the most high God.  How can I not praise Him?  How can I not make Him the most important thing in my life?
