The devotional "The Upper Room" is available at the church.
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments. Psalm 119:73
sunset is one of God's magnificent wonders. Sweeping across the horizon as if painted by God's own hand, it imbues the receding sunlight with indescribable splendor and signals that one day is giving way to another --a celestial changing of the guard.
Your life is full of days as well, but you seldom pass as smoothly from one to the other. You fail to view the sunsets in your life in the same way you do the sunrises. Endings can be just as beautiful as beginnings if you allow God to one the eyes of your understanding. When you truly realize the miracle of the sunset, you will no longer cling to the remains of the day. You will instead revel in its beauty, celebrating life to its fullest.
In ages past you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. Psalm 102.25
Great Creator, open the eyes of my understanding to appreciate the sunsets in my life. Amen
