Look to the Heavens

“Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.” Isaiah 40:26 NIV

The sunset show begins with darkening skies and soft colors.

One of my favorite times of the day is sunset. I love to “look to the heavens” and watch the changing colors of the evening sky and the stars pop out one by one as darkness falls. I love to imagine God creating each star, placing it in the nighttime sky and naming it. Just like God created each one of us and calls us His beloved children.

Look to the Heavens

Find a quiet place, just a little out of town,

Sit back, relax and wait for the sun to go down.

Look to the heavens and get ready for the show.

God’s beautiful creation is beginning to glow!

The clouds light up with bright colors from the last of the sun’s light.

Oranges, pinks, and reds appear, growing bright.

As clouds reflect the sun’s last rays of light.

The sky gets darker and the moon rises higher.

Stars begin to emerge like spots of white fire.

The color fades a bit as the sky gets darker. Can you see the moon?

As the sun finally sets, the starry heavens shine.

Thank God, the Creator, for His display so fine!

The heavens darken more as the first star appears. Can you find it? It might actually be a planet.

This week take your family with you. Find a place away from a lot of lights, take chairs and blankets (if it’s cold) and “look to the heavens” and watch God’s amazing sunset show. Draw a picture of the sunset or take a picture so you can always have the reminder of God’s glorious creation.

Blessings as you delight in God’s sunset!
