One thing that never fails to fill my eyes with tears of amazement and wonder is gazing up at the night sky away from all the glare of city lights as I stand in awe of the beauty of God’s creation;  a countless number of sparkling stars lighting up a dark night sky. And tonight and tomorrow night, in many parts of the United States as well as in the UK, many of us will have the best opportunity to view the Orionid meteor showers! Who could ever imagine that debris from Halley’s comet could be so beautiful to behold! Before I head out onto my deck with my camera to see if I can get just a glimpse of this beautiful display of space junk amidst God’s creative handiwork of innumerable glowing stars, and possibly get a picture or two, I wanted to share this breathtakingly beautiful timelapse video with you that I saw this morning that brought tears to my eyes from start to finish! The photographer, Matt Dieterich, did an amazing job of capturing some of the beauty of God’s creation in this video!

When I look up at the nighttime sky or gaze upon the beauty of a sunrise or sunset, it seriously makes me stand in astonishment as I sadly wonder, “How can anyone not believe that there is a God?” When they stand before Him on judgment day, truly they will have no excuse!

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heart. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.” (Psalm 19:1-6)

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” (Romans 1:18-20)

His wisdom is profound, his power is vast. Who has resisted him and come out unscathed? He moves mountains without their knowing it and overturns them in his anger. He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble. He speaks to the sun and it does not shine; he seals off the light of the stars. He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea. He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the constellations of the south. He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” (Job 9:4-10)

Praise the Lord. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him! The Lord builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. The Lord sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.” (Psalm 147:1-6)
