The Heavens Proclaim God’s Glory

Saturday, November 8

11-8By Cindy L. Korf of North Platte, Nebraska, USA

The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims God’s handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge…yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. …Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hid from its heat.

—Psalm 19:1–2, 4, 6, adapted NRSV

One morning blessed me with the beautiful sight of the morning sun rising. The rays of light painted the sky from the horizon outward and across the entire firmament. I could only marvel as the Spirit filled my soul and the heavens justly proclaimed the glory of God!

Day after day, the sun rises and sets. The heavens speak, but without a sound or word. Faithfully, the heavens proclaim the glory of God! The skies display God’s artistry. God is alive! Divine presence is with us always if we would just open our eyes and see. Open our mouths to express gratitude. Share our witness of God’s generosity to the end of the Earth. No one can hide from God’s grace.

Prayer for Peace Generous God, you bless us with your creation. Help us discern opportunities to share through word and deed our appreciation by inviting others to share in your blessings, to share in Christ’s peace.

Spiritual Practice: Invite People to Christ Read and reflect on Doctrine and Covenants 162:3b and 163:2b. Pray to be aware of people who might be receptive, and therefore blessed, by your sharing of the message of the Living Christ. Imagine being in relationship with them and inviting them to Christ. In preparation, discover your personal testimony of Christ. “Be persistent in your witness and diligent in your mission to the world.” Repeat this mantra throughout the day: “Christ’s mission, our mission, my mission.”

Peace Covenant Today, God, I will spend my day in gratitude, speaking of your goodness.

    HEAVEN

    There’s a blue, blue sky in heaven

    With the suns golden rays entwined.

    Where each flower unfolds to perfection;

    By the touch of our Master Divine.

    A place of perfect contentment;

    Where man’s rules no longer apply.

    Where the spirit of love enfolds us

    In the Master’s sweet bye and bye.

    Our spirit moves in and out freely,

    As we work at the Master’s plan.

    And the glories that swell out around us

    Are more then an ocean of sand.

    Rejoice in the gladness of morning,

    As each day bursts forth with joy.

    And the sun sets in majestic beauty

    Reflecting the Master’s glory.

    The beauty of God’s creation

    Flows throughout the heaven’s vast span.

    And a beautiful garden awaits us

    That’s been touched by the Master’s hand.
