I woke up at 3:30 AM this morning. I rolled over to go back to sleep and noticed a light beaming through my curtain. I went to look, and found that the light was a bright star.
While I was at the window, I noticed how lovely it was outside. With it being an almost full moon, everything outside was lit up and only a few of the most vibrant stars were visible. It was breathtaking to look at. Knowing I wouldn’t be able to go back to sleep for a while anyways, I opened the curtain and sat on the ground looking at the sky and just thinking.
I watched for a long time as those constellations moved slowly at their appointed velocity through the sky and I really got to seriously praying. I’ve been going through a period of spiritual darkness where my relationship with God has been like a string threatening to snap. It’s been really hard, but no matter how many times I try to get up, Satan just drags me down again. It’s like the last few months I’ve been drowning, but today I finally got my head above the surface.
I won’t say much more, but right when I was ready to climb back in bed after sitting there for about an hour, a flash of light streaked the sky right in front of me. It was hands down the most brilliant, vivid shooting star I’ve ever seen.
Friends, I realized last night the crazy truth of the fact that creation points to a Creator. I cannot spend any extensive amount of time observing nature without thinking of Him and finding myself in a state of worship and reverence of the Almighty God. Next time I’m going through a rough spot, I’m just gonna spend more time watching stars.
