Declaring His Glory

Have you ever gazed into the night sky with awe and wonder at the blanket of stars and planets?

Sometimes I think we need to just step away from the busyness of life and look at God’s majesty and glory in His creation. The circumstances that loom large on the horizon will shrink in comparison to His vast display of divine artistry.

Oh what a display of God’s glory occurred this month with the first of four lunar eclipses over the next year and a half.

I sat out with my tripod and long lens and shot this amazing lunar eclipse. And I waited with great expectation for the promised blood red moon that would come about midway into this four hour adventure.

… The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship.
Psalm 19:1

For those times when you may doubt God’s power or existence, you should just sit outside under the stars and gaze at a mere glimpse of God’s mighty handiwork in the sky. The heavens do indeed speak of God’s glory and they are speaking every night, but especially during this wonder in the night sky.

I shot every phase of this eclipse and have included a bit of it for you here. And when the moon turned red, and the camera captured it, I was giving God a standing ovation!

Our God is incredible and I am so thankful to belong to Him – accepted in the Beloved as Paul says in Ephesians 1:6 (KJV). Oh, and that little white dot you see in the composite under the moon is Mars, one of the many planets spoken into existence by our Lord.

So today, dear friend, will you give God a standing ovation for His handiwork and believe again for His creative hand at work in your own life?

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
