Driving home around sunset, I noticed a break in the gray clouds ahead of me.
Many times, sunsets are a brilliant orange, red and yellow.
Other times, it seems that they take on only a white and gray glow.
Such was today.
The break in the vast silver curtain of clouds was so bright it couldn’t be looked at straight on.
Pulling off the highway, I photographed the scene in the sky above a tree nursery.
I had been listening to a song as I drove.
Part of the lyrics say,
All of my life, in every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship
The sun shines brightly, no matter what circumstances I may find myself in.
As consistent as the sun is, it will one day cease.
In all my life and for eternity, God will still be God.
I will always have a reason to worship Him.
It is good to say thank you to the Lord, to sing praises to the God who is above all gods.
Every morning tell him, “Thank you for your kindness,” and every evening rejoice in all his faithfulness. Sing his praises, accompanied by music from the harp and lute and lyre. You have done so much for me, O Lord. No wonder I am glad! I sing for joy.
O Lord, what miracles you do! And how deep are your thoughts!
