Stride for Stride

Have a look at this amazing video from National Geographic.  Thanks to the Cincinnati Zoo and a crew experienced in Hollywood action movies, the film captures running cheetahs in unbelievable detail.  Using a camera which shoots at 1200 frames per second, they were able to slow the images down to a point where you can see every twitch, push, and pull of the big cat’s muscles.  The first minute and fifty seconds are especially breathtaking, more so when you consider that they only covers 1.8 seconds of real-time.  Speed just seems to flow from the cheetah’s every move, as though it were something you could reach out and run your fingers through.

For me, this video captures a piece of God’s handiwork like nothing I’ve ever seen before.  Here is an animal doing exactly what it was created for, living up to its fullest potential, and that is beautiful.  Every once in a great while, I think you can say the same thing of a person too.  In those moments, those rare instances, when we hit our stride and walk right in step with His will, well, there’s nothing quite like it, is there?

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, 

or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; 

or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,

or let the fish in the sea inform you.

Which of all these does not know

that the hand of the Lord has done this?

Job 12: 7-10
