Star Light, Star Bright

My alarm was set for 5:35 this morning to go for a jog before my husband left for work. Since I was wide awake at 4:30, I got up shortly after and turned on the coffee and decided to head out. I was a little worried because it was really dark. Then I saw the moon. It is still almost full and was totally calling me to come outside.

It was so beautiful out. It wasn't cold, and for the first time in a long time I was able to see a sky full of stars.(I'm usually asleep before then.) I chose Chris Tomlin's See the Morning cd on my MP3. Seemed appropriate. So I'm jogging along and look up after being in a neighborhood with houses too tall to see the sky over. It looked like the whole galaxy was spread out before me. I could hear God whisper, "Look what I can do." Since I was only halfway home, that left me a fair amount of thinking time.

I thought about how He "multiplied His signs and wonders" in Egypt through the ten plagues before Pharoah let the Israelites go. The people would need to see what He is capable of so they would know they can trust Him and that He is all Powerful. Sometimes in my life, there will be times when all I will have to hold onto is the knowledge of what God can do. Look at the stars. Remember Who is looking out for me. Amazing.


  1. Got me all choked up. For the past two nights I've said to Steve, look at the moon. Our God is an awesome God, He reigns from heaven above with wisdom, power, and love, our God is an awesome God!

  2. Can we comprehend His bigness?? No, but I am going to think on it today!!
