An astronaut aboard the International Space Station shot a video in the past week that shows the aurora borealis, or northern lights, glimmering green on the horizon as it meets the sunrise over earth. It lasts for just fifteen incredible seconds.
The footage is shot over the eastern seaboard of the US, from the Outer Banks, to Delmarva Peninsula to Cape Cod and then up over Maine to Nova Scotia. You can clearly see the bump of the Outer Banks at the beginning, Chesapeake Bay, Delaware Bay, and the curling arm of the Cape all the way to Provincetown and then swoops up to the Canadian Maritimes.
The LORD God is an incredible God. Nothing that will happen today has not already been sifted through His hands and ordained. Seeing this beauty from a high-above perspective makes us once again laud and honor our God- the Creator of it all.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. (1 Timothy 3:16)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-51)
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:16-18)
