Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Psalm 36:5 NRSV

Thought

What do you see when you look at the sky? If it is a clear night, there are stars or perhaps the soft glow of moonlight. By day, clouds expand and shift across the visible horizon as far as the eye can see. Our spiritual vision is also our human limitation. It is, in fact, impossible to see or even imagine love and faithfulness as endless and vast as heaven except in faith.

Prayer

God, when I see the beauty of clouds I am reminded of your faithfulness. Thank you for the vast expanse of your love. Amen.

Assurance

I see the faithfulness of God in the beauty of all creation.
