Psalm 139:7-12 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
A few days ago, I went to visit my mother...who fortunately lives only 2 miles from my home. We were sitting outdoors in her yard (my childhood home) visiting (our new norm...for now) when I suddenly noticed how beautiful the sky had become. I took a picture...and then I took another a few minutes later...and then another...and another.
Even though visiting with my mother, I somehow couldn't take my focus off of the beauty right there in front of me. Something kept drawing my attention back to the tree...and the skyline.
I shot several pics but somehow, a picture never really captures the feeling, the beauty, the awe of the moment.
However, quite opposite were the results this time.
While I was focused on the beautiful tree and the sun set...I was missing the LIGHT!
Sure, the sun was in my face...and shining in my eyes...but somehow, I failed to see THE LIGHT!
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? The answer is nowhere!
Don't get discouraged...don't quit...don't be worried...because our God is bigger than anything the evil of this world can throw at us.
Look to the light...for “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5
May God richly bless you and your ministry today.
Keep going...keep loving...keep shining the light.
"Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven". Matthew 5:16
Praying for you today...and always!
Keep shining, Sunshine!
