Skywriting the Message of Love: A Psalm for the Summer

I’ve often said music is the universal language. There’s truth in that but recently, while reading Psalm 19 I realized God authored the true universal language.  Music comes from God but is composed by man. The heavens above –the sky, the sun, the moon, the clouds –are seen by every creature on earth. The heavens are the language heard by all.

“The heavens declare the glory of God.”

Every culture, every people group on the face of the earth seeks God. Seeks to know their creator. Seeks understanding of the universe. God creates in each of us a desire to know Him. And it starts in the form of “skywriting.”

Psalm 19
For the director of music. A psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Feel free to share your own "skywriting" messages from God. I'd love to see your pictures!


  1. My favorite kind of message from God. I am always taking pictures of the clouds. I don't know how to share them here though. Beautiful message!

    1. Thank you! Send me one on FB. I think I'll try to compile some of the "responses" and post them at a later date.

  2. Lovely, and so sorry, but I'm on a self-deadline and just stopped by because of the intriguing title. Beautiful. Wish I had time to share pics I and hubby have taken of the sky. Love you, Becky.

    1. You are so special. I love you, too! Share pics later with me. I'll try to compile them and share them on a future blog. Good luck with the new book!

  3. Cynthia Meyers-Hanson has been collecting photos of sky and clouds and I believe she is creating a book of them. Due to light sensitivity I enjoy the night sky more than day. It's vastness humbles and fills me with awe for our Creator.

    1. ...vastness humbles...oh how I'm with you there, Onisha! Thank you for stopping in and thank you so much for the comment.

  4. Onisha Ellis thanks for the shout out. My book is on Amazon and called "God News in Photos."

    1. I need to check it out! I have a picture of a "rainbow cloud" I recently saw while traveling to Wisconsin. Thank you for stopping by, Cynthia!
