“‘Men and women who have lived wisely and well will shine brilliantly, like the cloudless, star-strewn night skies.
And those who put others on the right path to life will glow like stars forever.
Daniel 12: 3 (The Message)
Glow like stars forever
Lord I wander out to the darkened backyard, void of its green and growing season,
Resting now in cold November soil.
Hush fills the garden tonight.
I snuggle under your protective canopy of a deep blue comforter and gaze at the multitude of lights flickering in Your sky.
Why did you create stars, Lord?
The varied sizes and glows send a mixed message of their dimensions, distances, and purposes.
Some of the brightest are really planets.
Some of the tiniest are huge in reality.
Some of their lights reach earth long after they have perished.
Some represent new births as Your universe continues to expand.
These verses today linger in my heart as I survey Your heavens.
I want to live wisely for You, Lord, and with You eternally.
May my life glow like stars forever.
Even if my light lives tiny on the edge of the horizon, I know You are the source of all of its power.
My glow reflects Your flame of love.
My twinkling mirrors Your pulsating heart.
I want to be a star forever glowing for You.
