Star gazing draws me to the utter “awe ” of the Lord and whenever there is a chance to look at the stars and see the majesty of the universe as it spreads out like a shimmering blanket…my heart always rejoices! The order of the universe held in place by His power is too wonderful for words.That He holds it all together yet died for me and cares about the details of my life ( our lives ) is beyond the ability to grasp …but I believe it! Praise Him for the grace and mercy that has allowed me to believe.
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
9 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
14And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15( John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.'”) 16And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. 17For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy
- He determines the number of the stars;he gives to all of them their names.
Indeed these are the days of awe and He loves us so much the stars shout for joy as He has written it in the skies…
Are we ready and do we know how close it is? Let us pray to be found to be those who have “faith on the earth” when He returns…
