Nothing gets lost in God's largeness

Psalms 36
5 God's love is meteoric,
his loyalty astronomic,
6 His purpose titanic,
his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
nothing gets lost;

Not a man, not a mouse,
slips through the cracks
7 How exquisite your love, O God!
How eager we are to run under your wings,
8 To eat our fill at the banquet you spread
as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water.
9 You're a fountain of cascading light,
and you open our eyes to light.

"Meteoric," "astronomic," "titanic," "oceanic," these are huge words to describe God.  Yet no one, animal, or place is forgotten by Him.  Amazing.  I can barely remember what I did when I walk away from my keyboard.  God is omnipresent (everywhere), omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful).  Yet David says His love is exquisite and we eagerly run under His wings.  I have to agree.  I don't deserve to know God based on my past or family history.  But He opens the invitation to everyone, as they are, anytime.
