God Rays

“Those are the glories of God.”

“The what?”

“The glories of God,” Sue said, pointing to the sunbeams shining through the clouds.

Wow! I didn’t know I could see the glories of God. Sue should know. After all, she’s nine.

“Mom! Mom!” I gasped, hurrying to the front steps of our house. “I just saw the glories of God!”

“What?”

“The glories of God! Come look!”

We walked to our backyard overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.

“See. There they are. The glories of God,” I said, showing her the streams of light shining downward from the sky. A warm wind brushed against our faces as we stood, looking upward. Did God really open the heavens to let those beams of light shine down to earth?

Driving home from work today, I saw them again. Shafts of light shining earthward, scientifically called God rays.

Some day I will see the real God rays – His glory. In heaven, the Lamb, Jesus Christ is the light. No need for the sun or the moon. His brightness will illuminate eternity (Revelation 21:23).

Come Lord Jesus. My light and my salvation.
