Honoring His Sacred Everlasting Light
In Genesis, God challenged Abraham to count the stars. Abraham looked up at the night sky amazed. The stars were so numerous, but Abraham accepted the Lord’s blessings upon his life. He dared to count the stars in the night.
The cool night and wind blew across my backyard patio. I sat with my legs crisscrossed on the cool pavement looking at the brilliant sky. I loved looking at the stars. They twinkled and glowed. I wanted to count them and literally hug them close. I felt amazed and quiet as I breathed in the night. I started to pray for a blessing from Him.
I wanted to be like Abraham. “God let me count the stars for you too.”
My heart started to sing, “I love you Lord. Your creation amazes me.” I stood up and twirled in the starlight. Then, I stopped. Something appeared in the heavens. It looked like a star coming toward earth at a great speed. It stopped and burst, splitting into two parts. The parts streaked across the night sky in seperate directions.
I knew this was my sign of light for my worship song. Joy filled my heart. I was only 12, but God Heard Me. Me, just a scrawny kid in South Florida. God sent His Sacred Everlasting Light of approval into my life in an amazing display of love.
I hugged the stars and gathered them in, trying to count them.

Later, I learned the “star” that seemed to explode into two pieces and streak across the sky was the U.S. Skylab whose orbit had decayed sending it crashing to the ground in Australia. It was amazing though that it had happened on the very night that I was singing in my backyard and counting the stars, worshipping and asking for a blessing from God.
What blessings are you seeking this Holy Season of Advent? I encourage you to spend time in your backyard one night this Holy Season. Twirl, dance, and sing as you count the brilliant stars in the night. Count your stars so God can shine His blessed Light into your life too.
