I couldn’t help but pause to admire the scene. The sun, gently slipping below the horizon as though it was tucking itself into bed at the end of a long day. A blaze of magnificent colour streaming across the sky as if to say “goodnight and sweet dreams” as the peace of nightfall settled over the land.
Have you ever stopped to admire the sunset? Why? The science of physics tells us the sun is just a great big flaming ball of gas and that we see it’s light as it refracts through earth’s atmosphere. Yet in spite of the plainness of how it works, we are captivated by its beauty. There is more to the sunset than meets our eyes. There is a whisper that warms our hearts. A whisper only heard by those who pause in its presence. “Be still and know that I am God”.
Let us pray today for time to be still, and to listen for the whisper of God in the marvel of His creation.
