Shine for You

Even the stars answer His call. He has named them all and calls each one by name. He knows our names too, and calls us each by name. Father God, give me a heart to come running when you call, like the stars do. I doubt that shooting stars look around when He beckons to see if there is a better offer out there. Stars shoot through the galaxy at His whisper, gladly giving all they have to glorify Him.

Laying outside the other night, watching the Perseid meteor showers, all I could do was praise God. I could imagine the stars being excited because they were called. Not because of anything special they did, but because God chose them to hurtle through space at that moment, (actually thousand of years ago, but we finally see the light of it), for His purpose.

"All who claim me as their God will come, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them." Isaiah 43:7

  1. As the Earth turns on its axis, from time to time I can see Orion the Hunter outside my bedroom window with his two dogs Cannis Major and Minor chasing Taurus. I love it. Here in the country, the stars shine so brilliantly. It is wonderful. One of my favorite things to teach at school is astronomy...especially about the birth of stars..from nebulas to sometimes black holes. It is a perfect picture of the amazing handiwork of God and it is amazing to me, how our process of creation..that of humankind mirrors that of nebulas..created out of nothing...and turned into spectacular beings. God is good. He loves us sooo much! Isn't it also fun to think about how the Sun is a star but the moon is rock and that rock draws its light from the sun? Who can miss that analogy? Thanks God! Thank you too for your great post.
