The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. (Psalm 19:1)
If ever the heavens did declare the Glory of God as stated in the Psalms, it was this week across the northern part of the USA as the Northern Lights were seen. Here in SC, we didn’t see the Northern Lights (for obvious reasons) but we are experiencing fall days that are crisp, clear, & sunny. The lake near our house was beautiful yesterday morning as it reflected the changing colors of the trees along it’s shore. I immediately thought of the verse in Psalms when I drove past the lake and then again as I saw the photos of the Northern Lights.
So, I wonder, does my life declare the glory of God? Do the things I do and the things I say proclaim Him? Sadly, my answer would be not all the time. And so I strive to be more like Him. And that is my prayer; that daily I become more like Him and in doing so I am declaring and proclaiming Jesus to those around me. It’s a journey for me. A journey I find joy and contentment in for it is part of my “portion”.
By the way, in case you haven’t seen the slide show on FoxNews of the Northern Lights, I recommend checking it out.
