I’m an amateur nighttime sky photographer at best, but I shot this image of the night sky while we were at the beach a few months ago. If you look in the bottom left corner, you can even see a shooting star I happened to capture! There’s even a faint one in the middle I just noticed today!
You see, here’s the thing… When I shot this image, I could probably see about 1/16th of these stars with the naked eye at best. But when I left the aperture open on my camera lens for 30+ seconds to capture this, the lens let so much light in that the camera could see way more than I could.
There were millions of stars I couldn’t see simply because I wasn’t able to with my naked eye. But it doesn’t mean those stars weren’t there.
They were there all along, I just wasn’t capable of seeing them… yet.
II can’t help but be in awe of our incredible Creator God when I look at this image and I to wrap my head around the vast expanse of the His creation all around us that we can’t see or even begin to comprehend.
But, when we stop and we slow down and allow ourselves the opportunity to let His light in, and the more we let His light in, the more of Him that’s revealed to us. And the more of Him that is revealed, the more we can’t help but fall to our knees in prayer and worship.
Lord, I want more of You and if the stars were made to worship You, so will I.
