One star can shine brighter than another but they are still stars. As they are next to another star, the sky lights up even more. God counts them and even names them. This shows the importance of one star to me, God names them.
Psalm 147:4 New Living Translation (NLT)
4 He counts the stars
and calls them all by name.
Just like God has created each us, he counts us and knows our names. Each of our lives shines different and yet in purpose! Together we shine brighter and can make a bigger difference.
Isaiah 40:26-31 New Living Translation
26 Look up into the heavens.
Who created all the stars?
He brings them out like an army, one after another,
calling each by its name.
Because of his great power and incomparable strength,
not a single one is missing.
27 O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?
O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?
28 Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
BRIGHT STAR ~
You might need to find your strength again today. A trust in God and yet feeling tired of where you are in in life. Maybe you don't understand the why of something and it just becomes too much. I believe that God hears the cry of your heart and knows you by name. You are a star to him and to many others. I find that even the strongest person I know in God, has days of wonder. They find their strength in God but encouragement from others helps. We are human and our thoughts can carry us away from one spot of life.
Verse 31 above says:
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
Readers of my blog, it our choice what we let stay in our minds and hearts. We know that one day might take courage to face and one day things come smoothly. In my younger years, I looked around and saw how people seem to have life so easy. It might not be easy, there is always an inside story. Someone told me once that everybody has skeletons in their closet. Meaning we all have a past. Let us look into a mirror of forgiveness, faith, hope and travel into great thoughts.
My prayers continue for you who read this and your family/friends. I value your time and care. Have a bless day! Let your life shine bright, because you are a star in the eyes of God and others.
