星空草原 The Starry Pasture

2012年暑假第一次踏足內蒙,我驚嘆映入眼簾ㄧ望無際的大草原.營會的人告訴我當地已經很久沒下雨了,但幾天前才剛下過雨所以草原才如此翠綠.晚上抬頭仰望更是被浩瀚的星空所震憾.我終能體會詩人所說:

我觀看你指頭所造的天、並你所陳設的月亮星宿、便說、人算甚麼、你竟顧念他.世人算甚麼、你竟眷顧他. (詩篇8:3-4)

太多時候我們被世界的虛華所迷惑,為周遭的事物煩心,以至生活失去了喜樂,方向和動力.但有一”星空草原”是上帝為我們所預備在那裡我們能看見神的恩典和榮耀,在那裡我們俯伏敬拜,在那裡我們從新得力.

ㄧ天下午當我對著草原彈著吉他哼唱時,靈感忽然湧現,我用詩歌記錄下這”星空草原”.我要常常回到這星空草原因在那裡我與神相遇.你是否也有一”星空草原”?

Summer 2012, the first time I stepped on Inner Mongolia, immediately I was in awe the vast green pasture. People told me there had been no rain for long time but it just rained few days ago that’s why the pasture is so greenish. Evening came I lifted up my head and was shocked by the starry sky. I finally can understand why David says in Psalm 8:3-4

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

Too often we were blinded by the world, we were anxious by many things, so we lost our joy, direction and even motivation. But God has provided a “Starry Green Pasture” for us: There we see the grace and glory of God, there we bow down worship God, there we regain our strength.

One afternoon when I was playing guitar facing the green pasture, I was moved to record this Starry Green Pasture in song. I will come back often to this “Starry Green Pasture” because there I encounter God. Do you also have your “Starry Green Pasture”?
