Feb 13 – Look Up

Last month the Canadian Space Agency announced that an intense burst of energy from the sun was heading towards earth and was expected to make for spectacular conditions to see the northern lights across Canada. Many living in rural areas enjoy the splendor of the milky way and the celestial wonders above. unfortunately people who live in the large urban areas are not so privileged. Artificial lights distract and make it difficult to see the night sky. It is similar with our lives. Often the cares of this life, our ambitions, goals, careers and other things distract us so that we do not look up. Jesus once said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” I urge you to look up. A gospel songs suggests, “turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”
