Soooo, late last night while looking UP at a clear star star-studded sky, and while observing the timeless design and perfectly patterned glittering diamonds of light, I saw a ‘shooting’ star, so bright, so eventful, so demure in its quickness, but so endearing in its significance, I immediately said this:
‘O Lord, Thou art good, Thy glory is obvious, help me promote Thy glory.’ So I’m doing it, now.
Yes, instinctive thoughts upon seeing that laser of glory. But you may say, how so is that glorious? Ha! What else is there? Accidental serendipity? The erosion of light bulbs? Global warming? A spectacle by the hands of NASA engineers? An edict by Musk? No, I’ll have none of it thank you very much.
A light. Blazing across the sky. Not random at all. If I did not see it, if no one saw it, the Creator would have received as much pleasure, for by His pleasure they are and were created. ‘They.’ As in, all things wherein man cannot take credit for. But you may say, ‘heck, these shooters have been going on since forever.’ Yes, good observation Sherlock, as God never sleeps.
Happens so quick doncha know. One hundreth of a second or less? Doesn’t matter, but its’ a display meant to be seen.
But we have become so numb to such glory because of politics, sports, entertainment, violence, lousy religions, work, and all other distractions, (then there is the theft of our minds through covid) that we fail to see and admit the OBVIOUS.
That there is One. Highest above all. He towers above all Babel and Burj makers, He towers high above all babblers, whose tongues flap but say nothing. He is Highest above the self-made elite, He shuts the mouths of fools by such dazzling displays of night works, as He orders a light this way, and sends one that way. His glory is OBVIOUS.
Can’t wait to hear any lame challenge to what is so darn obvious. Better yet, how many will agree?
We sing a song “His name is Higher… than any other… His name is Jesus… His name is Lord…”. Reading thru psalm 121-125 right now as I sip some coffee. “My hope is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth”. We become what captures our gaze. Make sure to be Captured by none other.

— I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.—-
If we only grasped this- that the very word of God is so elevated- one reason why the cosmology of scripture is sooooo precious to me- outdating the worst and best of astronomers for ever.
Even the smallest events in creation are far beyond my understanding. Imagine what everything looked like before the fall. In spite of the darkness of our world, He continues to gift us with these special moments.
