Beyond Infinity

I sit
Alone in the dark
The finite contemplating the infinite 
My mind travels to the stars
Innumberal planets and moons
My World no longer feels so large
It is less than a speck of dust
I travel further
Beyond the stars
To space without end
No beginning no end
Even this void is not enough to hold my God
I look to the microscopic
He also resides in the small
We have only begun to see
The details the intricacies of him
The universes within all worlds
Molecules, atoms, electrons and DNA
His signature pointing the way
Ordered 
Divine
It should increase our faith
Nothing came from time and chance
Here I am the finite
Watching the sun rise
Thankful for another day
I know through Jesus I will become infinite
Limitations will be removed
In the future he will help me understand
For now I am thankful for today

    Loved the celestial qualities of this piece and I agree with your message entirely. I find it really silly how one can so readily believe that all this wonder was purely accidental... like really? The finite gazing upon the infinite... that's really how it is isn't? Couldn't have said it better myself... I responded to your comment on my clerihew James Cameron btw if you wanna take a look...
