My face grew cold in the brisk night air. I gazed at the tiny stars, glowing faintly yet steadily in the heavens above. Joy swelled. Right then, taking in the scene passing before me, words and phrases begin to form in my mind. In the veins of a writer there is always a coursing sense of wanting to capture it all, choosing just the right words in just the right way to make the memories last. To hold on to the gifts. To not forget the vast beauty.
The Lord gives us the whole universe, the whole creation to illustrate knowledge of who He is.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: -Romans 1:20 via
Every nation can look at the starry expanse and be taught of His majesty and infinite wisdom. Who can deny the awesome, mighty power of God in the pounding of a waterfall or clashing of thunder? The miracle of life as a baby comes into the world, new lungs filling with their first cry? He teaches man so clearly through these created things…
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below.
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly hosts;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
