I gaze at the starry sky at night, the deep blackness broken with the vastness of an infinite number of stars. It is a boundless canopy stretching far above me, darkness pierced by millions of points of light. The darkness can not overtake me because you have pierced it with your light. The heavens above show me your presence. No man made light can replace your presence. You are eternal, vast and ever present. Yet you are close to me, steadfast, my eternal hope. I praise you dear God for your presence, your love, your grace.

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. – Genesis 1:14-16 (NASB)

As I read your post I found myself asking why stars shine. After a quick search, it all begins with hydrogen molecules. But I found myself then asking where does the hydrogen in stars come from. The scientific answer is thar they were formed at the creation of the universe, which doesn’t really answer the question. Yet this does point to a beginning and our Creator, Hallelujah! Thank you for this inspiring prayer.
God’s creation is so amazing, so intricate and detailed. Makes me think of Romans 1:20 — God is clearly evident; there is no excuse in not seeing Him. Thanks for the comment. Blessings.
