Hidden by the light

My eyes turned toward the stars shining above me. I live out in the country. Dark is darker and stars are brighter in the country. City lights illuminate the darkest night and hide most of the stars.

As I pondered the beauty of the sky and the multitude of the stars I thought – There are just as many stars in the sky above the city. But we can’t see them because of the clutter of city lights.

This prompted my next thought – What kind of clutter obscures our vision of God? Too much to do? Too much stuff? Too many hobbies, jobs, worries?

Spend some time today with God, uncluttered by the cares of the world.
