I was reading a verse that talked about how the sky reflects God’s greatness, and I paused to imagine it. Suddenly, tears filled my eyes as the realization hit me; it had actually been a while I actually paused to savor nature and everything going on around me.
Things can get so busy that sometimes all we want to do after a hard day’s work is sleep! Uninterrupted, six-hour sleep…no-time-for-dawn-prayers sleep! As tired as the body can be, it doesn’t take too long to pause and say thank you; to look at the sky and the beautiful things and people around me to remind me of God’s might and faithfulness.
Sometimes, we’re so engrossed in the blessing, it may slowly take us away from the “Blesser” if we’re not careful. What has God blessed you with today? It could be a great marriage, job, kids, wealth, a budding business, etc. Whatever it is, don’t let it take you away from your first Love.
Just a Few Minutes…
Even if you don’t have much time on your hands each day, and sometimes you’re so exhausted, you can find little ways to stay connected. It could be waking up just a few minutes early to have your devotion before the busy day starts. It could be listening to your favorite gospel songs on your way to work and using it as an opportunity to commune with God, praising and worshipping Him, or simply pausing to look at the sky and whispering a prayer of gratitude for Who God is and all He has done.
What the Sky Will Tell You
The sky has a lot to tell us about God’s glory…if we will only take the time, look closely, and breathe.
“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. God has made a home in the heavens for the sun.”
Psalms 19:1-4 NLT
