Seeing · Translation

translation of a sunrise…

Early this morning… my husband’s voice reached my ear… the sunrise is pretty this morning
And sure enough… it was one I thought glorious…
Seeing it fleshed out before me… the Word came to mind…
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
Psalm 19:1-2 ESV
Sunrises… sunsets…
a language… I believe… only human eyes can translate…
a glory… only we can see…
Set in the sky… as part of His plan…
to reveal Himself… 
to those He knew would rebel…
He was not surprised… that the elements He spoke…
created brilliance…
at the beginning and end of each new day…
He knew a day would come…
when those would want to explain it away…
by particles… pollution… and light traveling through…
But those… who seek… who long to know Truth…
will recognize His glory…
and see His handiwork…
being voiced… through the skies…
and translated… by faith…
in those who believe…
to songs of praise… and thanks…
The Mighty One, God the Lord,
speaks and summons the earth
from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Psalm 50:1 ESV
