Fighting Words Friday: Love and Light

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.

-Psalm 19:1-2

I can’t tell you how many times the stars have reminded me of God’s love and light. There have been countless nights when I have shaken my fist at the heavens asking God, “Why?!” Every time I have been in one of those desperate places in the night, I encounter the stars, shining bravely in the dark, and reminding me that no matter how dark the night gets, God’s love and light will be with me.

Thankful for the reminders of truth God scattered all through creation! They have guided me through many dark nights of the soul. So when you see the stars tonight, let them tell you something about the light and beauty of Christ, let them remind you that no matter how dark or bleak your life may feel, there is hope in the night and morning will always come! Thank you for reminding me of this truth over and over again, Lord as I look to the sky.
