When I look at the moon and the stars twinkling above, the tiny lights remind me that He is near. There is no space between us. When I look at the sun’s rays beaming through clouds in the morning, the streams of light speak of His power. His hands are able to move all things in the direction of His will. When I see still water reflecting the skies, I think of His peace. He is never impatient and always on time. Sometimes when I breathe, I see that He is right there giving me air. He is our life line.
I don’t think that there is anything we want more than to be in His presence. To be in His vicinity. To be in close quarters with a God who never gives up. Who is always working on our behalf. Who, out of His own love, brings us deeper into a love affair. A love affair with a God who is a Savior. Who holds Eternity. And, who, at the same time, holds our hands. He is very, very big, but His love travels down to the smallest parts of our person.
He sees in our hearts the potential of what we can be. Each and every day. In each and every moment. He doesn’t act in light of our humanness, but in light of His godliness. He doesn’t act in light of left turns or rebellions. He acts in light of who we are capable of being through His love. He doesn’t act in light of our weaknesses, but in light of who He knows we can be when we are standing with Him. He doesn’t act in light of us, but in light of Him.
If you are able, slow down to the stillest, quietest place you can walk your mind to. In that silent place, where color radiates in iridescent white. Where a walk beside pure waters feels like a good journeys end, but does not end. Where time has become a feeling a timelessness. Slow down to that place and walk with Him. And, once you have walked for awhile, ask Him what He wants for you.
