did you see that?

Psalm 19:1  NLT
The heavens proclaim the glory of God.  The skies display his craftsmanship.

Step outside.  Did you see it?  Painted across the sky is some of the most beautiful art that I have ever seen before.  That was night.

I looked up and saw the moon draped by the most glorious black expanse dotted with little white twinkling lights.  The moon is perfectly round, and you can make out the valleys and mountains.  And it is so beautiful.  The air is crisp and clean.  It is a little chilly which capped off a sunny day of about 70 degrees.  I’m reminded at our wonderful our creator, at how awesome our God is.

Another morning I looked across the scene before me.  It could have been the ocean from the white sand beach.  It might have been a mountainside of fresh summer growth surrounded by the hills, the streams, the trees and so much more.  Maybe it was fall with the colorful leaves almost like someone took the many colors of paint and spent days creating art.

I’m mesmerized by the glory of our God.  It is seen the beauty of His creation as well in the time that I have spent with Him.  God has shown up.  His faithfulness and love grow so much with every gift, with every direction and in all sorts of situations. 

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!  His mercies never cease.  Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.

That’s what I have experienced.  Did you see that?  Did you see the greatness of God?  He is faithful when we don’t have the ability to be faithful.  He is loving when there seems to be no reason for love or for that old “tender kindness” that we read of in the Bible.  But He is rich in mercy, in love and in His greatness. 

God is all that.  His desire is for us to experience Him, and today is the opportunity that God had afforded us to see and hear and know Him.

Did you see that?

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.  And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
