This is a picture I took outside my home; the colors and the cloud formations are nice!
My eyes behold the breath-taking beauty of a brilliant orange and yellow sunset. I have a thing about sunsets and sunrises…I love the color and the almost surreal beauty I see. The many varied colors and the lines and shapes within the sunrise or sunset. The warm glow of colors above a row of trees, filling the sky above with eye popping displays of light. The sun setting over fresh fallen snow, it’s scintillating colors a reminder of God’s artwork. It is just incredible how astonishingly beautiful some of these are.
How could we look at such a simple but yet marvelous display of beauty in the sky, and not see the hand of the Creator behind it? Who or what else, could place something so amazing in the sky? Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Pause for a moment when the sun is rising or setting, and just soak in the beauty that God has presented before you. You are gazing on a manifestation of God’s glory! His creation will glorify Him in many ways, this is only one, but oh so wonderful to see.
Pause and see the beauty of His creation around you, and then give thanks. Ephesians 5:20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is the song I was thinking of as I wrote this, the lyrics are wonderfully praising of God. Mercyme, All Of Creation
Glory to God, today, tomorrow and forever. Thank you Father for the wonders of creation you provide for our souls to drink in. Let us praise your Name always and forever. Amen.
