Sky Chaser | Story Time Blog

It began when I was a child. I remember laying in the grass and watching puffy, white clouds slowly slide across a bright blue sky. For hours, I just laid there and watched. I thought to myself, “How does God have such control over the sky?” The sky was so peaceful and serene. How did God manage it? How did He hold it in place?

Years later, I took an evening bike ride. I rode a couple miles away form my house to an abandoned farm. I pumped my bike to the top of the hill and stopped. Out of breath and sweating, I gazed out. The colors of the sky as the sun set were the perfect background against the grassy hill. Once again, I found myself utterly amazed at God. Not only did He have control, He was beautiful. What He created was just so beautiful.

A few more years go by and I am now a teenager. By this point, my parents had done some remodeling on our house. Our porch was now a closed-in laundry room with a roof. I could access this roof by climbing out my bedroom window, which I often did. I usually was yelled at for doing this, but it never stopped me. Any time I had a friend sleep over, we’d sneak out my window at night and watch the stars. My friends would usually get cold or tired and go back inside. But I would just lay there, for hours, staring at the stars. Again, I would find myself completely in awe of our Creator. Living out in the country, you could really see the beauty of a star-spangled sky.

Just last summer, it was outside with my camera at sunrise. My neighbor was awake and sitting on his porch. He noticed me snapping pictures of the sunrise. He looked at me and said, “You’re a bit of a sky chaser, aren’t you?”

I never heard it put that way before. A sky chaser. “Yeah, I guess I am!” I replied. To this day, I still experience that same amazement when I look at the sky. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t look to the stars for answers, because I look to the very one who made those stars.

One thought on “Sky Chaser | Story Time Blog

  1. Wow. Beautiful story. And funny you should bring up stars. Revelations 12:1-4 says, “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” Guess what’s happening September 23 of this year – something that has never happened before and will never happen again? The constellations will fulfill this very passage. Yes, Jupiter entered the womb of Virgo November 20, 2016. Nine months later on September 23, Jupiter will exit the womb of Virgo. Meanwhile, though Leo (the stars that crown Virgo) only have nine stars – where are the final 3? Why, three planets will join the cluster and will crown Virgo’s head PRECISELY when Jupiter is exiting the womb on September 23! Not only that, the sun will be at Virgo’s shoulder “clothing” her and the moon will be guess where… At her feet! All on September 23! A phenomena that will never happen again yet was spoken of nearly 2000 years ago! –If we read Revelations, we know that this sign is for the Jews – as per the coming of the Great Tribulations and Christ subsequent return to reign in Jerusalem!!! JESUS IS COMING SOON! THOSE WHO BELIEVE AND ARE SAVED ARE SOON TO BE RAPTURED.
