Seeing the Glory of God

"We can only see the stars at night. They're there during the day, when the sun bathes our world with light. But we can't see them until the sun slips away, plunging us into darkness." ~ Excerpt from Heaven Without Her by Kitty Forth-Regner

When I read this I instantly grasped the concept! I have gazed up into the blackest skies many times and admired with silent awe the flickering stars that seem worlds away. I don't exactly know why little white dots against a black back ground are so amazing, or why my soul is flooded with such feelings. When I gaze up at the huge sky I feel very small and insignificant.

It was always during the dark times in my life when I saw God's wonderful amazing glory. I would sometimes sit back and reflect on what had taken place in my life and try to grasp what God has done for me. I would feel very small and insignificant and realize how BIG and GREAT my God is!

Do I wish there were never nights? Of course not! If that were so I would never be able to see the beauty of the stars against the dark sky. Do I wish I had never been through my trials? No. If I hadn't, I would never know how much my LORD really does love me. "We can only see the stars at night."

Hi Jennifer,
I'm so happy that you liked this "stars" passage -- as far as I know, no one else has commented on it at all. And I love your comments. The psalmist sure knew what he was talking about when he wrote "The heavens declare the glory of God"!
Blessings to you,
Kitty Foth-Regner

I too love gazing at the stars, and just like you I sometimes feel so small! That is an awesome picture!
