The sky was amazing tonight. It wasn’t just in one spot. There were things happening all over the place. There were different shapes and colors of clouds almost everywhere you looked. Straight gray clouds and their tails were floating along in the west. Some puffy, dark gray clouds were hanging out in the north. Lower in the sky some bright pink clouds were glowing. There were various shades of pink and red and orange in other spots of the sky as well. Some light blue and some darker blue was painted across other parts of the sky. There were spots where the light was shining bright and some dark spots just a little bit over.
I was thinking of trying to take some pictures, but there was so much going on, so much beauty, so many interesting things to see all over the place, I didn’t know where to begin. So I decided not to take any pictures, but just enjoy the art show God was putting on.
I’m afraid some people probably missed tonight’s art show. Maybe they were busy being productive. Or they were looking at their phone. We can get so busy doing that which we think has to be done right now, we miss out on what God is doing. We live under the tyranny of that which tries to convince us it’s urgent and necessary. Most of the time it’ll be okay if we pause for a moment, lift up our eyes and spend some time in awe and wonder at what God has done.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Psalm 19:1). Tonight the skies proclaimed God’s wondrous beauty and glorious creativity. Thank you, Lord, for painting another masterpiece.
