Watching Stars

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.

One thought on “Watching Stars

  1. What a beautiful testimony. Chin up! God has a special plan for you. Let Him work His will with a thankful heart even in the downs. We miss you, but know you have a lot on your mind. Mainly, accept who you are…someone who has so much to give.

    Finally, got the tree and decorations up. On my own, again as Mary and girls are so busy. These are busy days for us, too.

    Hope to see you again soon.

    Love, Gramma
