Have you ever thought what the night sky would look like if there were no stars and no moon? Every night would be blackness in the entire expanse!
The other night I spent a very relaxing bit of time close to midnight just staring up at the stars as they became more and more visible. Why? Because it was the peak of the Orionid meteor showers for this year. I only saw a couple of meteors for sure, and a bunch of smaller flashes that were too quick for my mind to be sure of what I just saw.
But even when I was not seeing meteors, I found joy and peace just gazing at the sky and at the twinkling of the stars.
Today I am thankful for stars.
They are so beautiful! The order in which God has placed them is impeccable!
This reminds me of a couple of verses that compare wise people who lead others to righteousness with stars.
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3 NIV
“Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, ‘children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.’ Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky…” Philippians 2:14,15 NIV
Let’s go out rejoicing and be like stars in this dark world!
What about you? Do you like to gaze at the stars? Did you get a chance to watch the meteor showers? How does rejoicing make us like a star?
God bless you, Friends! 😊
