Yahweh, the bright & morning star & faith

Much attention is placed on all things human as the past year fades with a brief sending off of images & clips of 2013. A blip on the eternal radar gives a bit of a Gatsby glow as fireworks light up the night sky in noisy fashion as the creative, industrious & appreciative comes to the limelight.

The bright & explosive flashes of colour ignite something in my mind through the lens of mine eyes. The flash turns into something spectacular as it spreads & falls earthwards leaving a smoky transparent stream that diminishes into insignificance like the setting sun that gives way to the evening shadows…

And that’s how we roll here on this earth, at times on the moon & this year for the first time, Mars. Our curiosity & ingenuity is spectacular as we look for evidence of life elsewhere & accomplishment. But what is a year without war, suffering & pain & it’s equally impressive demonstration of industrious devastation & Fukushima dreaming & fifty shades of sky grey…And that’s how we rock things here on earth as we look to dominate & destroy fuelled by hatred, partiality & ignorance.

But all is not lost, high hopes for many, eternal hope in Christ for a few compelled by His love divine.

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.

Psalm 46: 1-6
