Stars. And watching them.
Laying on the springy grass, listening to crickets wail, and frogs croak, something inaudibly clicks. The darkness surrounds me, and I can almost taste it. But it’s not all dark. Above me, the sky is laden with stars.
Shining, shimmering, sparkling, they reach down and speak to my soul. I’m reminded that I am small, and that God is bigger than I can even imagine. He created these stars, and He knows the names of every one of them. As I watch them glow, I realize the truth of the verse in Psalms, The heavens declare the glory of God, and the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
As the stars grow brighter and the sky itself grows darker, even the crickets are silenced with awe. I want to serve God and live for Him forever, because He’s created all this for us, just because He loves us.
Go watch the stars. They’re shining soul stuff.
