In the light of day we see what surrounds us rather clearly, be it mountains, flowers, brambles, thorn trees, clouds of white in a blue sky, or thunderheads moving in from the north. Ah, but when the darkness of night settles upon the land, there is mystery. Vision is dim and unclear. A sense of unsettledness can fill our stomach, perhaps a little fear of who or what might be lurking. Hidden shapes can be full of threats. Best stay in hiding from the darkness. Ha! Ha! Whose life is this? Not mine! Is it yours?
I thank God for the blessings of the day in all I’m gifted to see. And in the night, the dark mystery shrouds my shoulders like a warm cloak. For if I raise my eyes and peer upward, I find a jewel covered dome. Stars shine and wink at me. A moon going through its phases shines its light, if its not playing hide and seek with the clouds. Night time is restful with a dab of excitement.
But then there is the inner being, the spirit. Learn to see in this world veiled to our physical eyes. My spirit seeks out my Lord God, my Creator, to learn and be taught the mysteries of that more secret and unseen spiritual world. As I seek my God’s heart it can be an amazing experience, full of His Presence in an atmosphere of joy.
Then again sometimes as I come to spend special time with Him, there is so much happening in life that it is like flies buzzing around my head; I struggle to focus on My Father. He is so good! He patiently waits until I've shooed the flies away and have settled down in the spirit. Then it’s like a bridge gets crossed and I’m with Him. He whispers in my heart how much He loves me and how I can always come to Him for comfort and healing and protection. Do not miss the opportunity to spend time with your loving Father.
Remember my friends, God has an answer for every problem if you go to Him in trusting faith. He can soothe any hurt, bring His light into any confusion. He wants you to come to Him! Seek His heart!! The rewards are a life in a glorious new paradigm! Come into joy!
