Acts 7:55But filled with the Holy Spirit, he gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.56‘Look,’ he said, ‘I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!’
I have to remember to look up when I’m feeling down. Took this pic on my drive home last evening feeling blue even after a glorious day of worship with God’s people in God’s church. Stopped to take the pic of the skies that beckoned, testifying and witnessing to me God’s glory, reminding me that I am not alone, that I am in God’s hands, following wherever my Lord would have me.
I wonder if the skies weren’t as they were then just so I’d sync up today that reminder as I prayed the Daily Office and encountered the scripture reporting Stephen’s martyrdom.
Look up when feeling down. And be thankful.
Praise God from whom all #cloudsofwitnesses and blessings flow.
