To Paint the Sky

About ten years ago, my wife and I were driving from one town to another locally. I do not recall where we were going or if we were on our way back home. I do remember that it was warm weather and it was late afternoon. She said, "Look at that beautiful sky!" And it was beautiful! Shades of orange and pink, purple and others arranged in a swirling and layered fashion. It was memorable. I told her, without thinking twice, "God painted that sky just for you." I don't know why I said that, it just sort of popped out. I saw her eyes fill with tears for the love of a God that would do that for her. Her very expression showed her love. She took my word as truth. To this day, I still believe that He painted that sky for her.

In the book of 1 Peter we have this verse: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1Peter 5:7

My wife did not ask for that sky that day. I just believe that He gave her that because He cares for her. He cares for me. He cares for you too. Jesus is capable to to take care of all we need for this day and for every day for the rest of our lives. What is in store for the person that chooses to love Him with all of their hearts? The sky is the limit.

Father, thank you for allowing me to tell of your many mercies that become new each morning. To tell of your kindness towards me and all that believe. Bless each and every one that reads and pour out your love upon them this day. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.


  1. The sky always makes my heart dwell on God. I get lost in the sunsets he paints for us. Keep painting for Him with your posts!

  2. Thanks Scott! The Lord and I have an agreement. He lets me know what He wants me to say, and I say it. Thanks for stopping by brother.
