Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with great power and glory.
—Mark 13:16 NLT
We watch for signs in the heavens, Lord, and we stand in awe of your coming eclipse. We rush to see that which we may never have a chance to see again. If only we gave you as much attention—if only we watched for you in the heavens—if only we stood in awe of your power—if only we rushed to be in your presence as if we might never see you again—then maybe we would understand that such a wonder as the eclipse is only part of your majestic design. You are the powerful creator of all we observe. Perhaps, while watching that moment when the sun is darkened for a few minutes by the moon, hearts will be waiting in anticipation of the moment you split the eastern skies.
