How these events affect us
Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, Not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:26
It is mind blowing to witness some huge events like an eclipse or a comet passing. We pause from our daily routine to contemplate the grandeur of the world around us and how cool it is. We watch in anticipation for the big moment and are excited to recall the event moment by moment, but what happens after? Do we continue on with our day to day grind? Or do we stop and think for a moment?
For me, it always amazes me of the beauty of the universe. My mind has been blessed with a fraction of the sight to consider just how huge we are and that it is all a ballet of galactic proportion. The North Star in the Bible was a star going supernova millions of years before the earth was even brought into being. The Lord set up the universe so at that time, the wise men knew where to go. Think of these movements put into place. I believe it is all in God’s plan, even the eclipse. We may not know the details yet or maybe it was meant to tell you something.
I take awe when seeing events like today and it makes me feel like a little kid. Waiting with anticipation, telling everyone, then finally experiencing a once in a lifetime even that will soon be in the history books. It is an honor to be able to appreciate these things and to know who holds this universe.
If you consider the balance of the sun, earth, and moon, realize what will be planned in your life. There are things that are being molded and refined to make you that fabulous soul you were meant to be. Just like the eclipse, we may want to speed up the time for the grand moment, but the Lord gives us these times to hope, grow our faith, and to embrace the moment knowing what is to come. It isn’t always easy, but it is worth the wait.
Have faith and the patience you need to refine your life the way the Lord created it to be. If He can move planets, stars, and celestial bodies, imagine what He can do in your life.
