My daddy has such a love for sunrises and sunsets that he’s taken approximately a bojillion pictures of each. Every single one is different. I thought I’d share a few of his great shots with you. He makes it a point most every day to enjoy the magnificent explosion of color during his morning walk and again in the evening.
I love that about my daddy.
There is something glorious about a sunrise. It’s as though God paints a beautiful reminder in the sky for all mankind to know that He is with us on this fresh new day. Then as the day closes, another masterpiece emerges across the heavens in case we’ve forgotten that He’s still near.
“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Him known.” –Psalm19:1,2
Devotional writer David Roper says that “These are the places in the walls of the universe where heaven is breaking through- if only we will take the time to stop and to reflect upon God’s love for us.”
How comforting to know that He is with us.
When our hearts are broken and we don’t know what to do, He is with us.
When the night is long and our pillow is soaked with tears of loss or betrayal, He is with us.
As though His promise to be with us is not enough, each morning and evening He splashes His faithful reminder across a hopeless sky.
“For Your unfailing love is as high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.” –Ps.57:10,11
I really really love that about my God!
“The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.” –Lamentations3:22,23
It’s a brand new day!
Praise God we do not face it alone, for heaven is breaking through!
