Beyond the Heavens

Beyond the Heavens

Like all creatures with souls, I have perpetually been in awe of nature. And yet I’ve always yearned for something more. Even before I believed, I looked for what was “behind” the night sky. I sensed that the spiral precision of leaves, the engraver’s perfection of snow flakes, the sublime splattering of the galaxies were never meant to be ends in themselves, but to point me past them, to awaken a sluggish love for the one who is “beyond the heavens.”

  2. The word “beyond” is very powerful.
    I also love nature… sometimes I spend my time just looking outside and what’s beyond its superficiality. And what’s beyond leave me in awe. It is like seeing the vastness and beauty of God in an unfathomable ways.
