Ahhhh…Facebook. Yesterday this “Memory” from three years ago popped up. Did I want to “share”? Yes, but in a different way…
Epiphany moment: on the way to work this morning at 6 am, just as dawn was breaking, I was coming over a hill. With variegated blue skies ahead, brilliant orange circles to the right caught my eye. Atop some sort of communication tower there appeared to be drums. They were perfectly positioned, reflecting as if mirrors, the sunrise taking place behind me.
It made me wonder: do I perfectly position myself to reflect the “Son”?
A few more moments of driving and the road sloped downward. The pond at the base of the hill caused a small patch of dense fog. I couldn’t see directly in front of me, let alone through to the other side. I got my answer: No.
Sometimes, more often than I would like to admit, I am so focused on situations that surround me, all be they temporary, I cannot see, nor do I look for, the “Son”. All I see is the world or circumstances closing in. How unfortunate for me. If I don’t/can’t realize that “all things shall pass” and have faith that I am where God wants me to be, but the light is coming, how could I ever be the beacon for someone else? That was my self check. Although I’ve got a long way to go, I’m quite the distance from where I started: grace.
That was the blog version of what I posted 3 years ago, not knowing I’d be where I am be today. Who knew I’d be dealing with like issues?
This weekend I need to focus on what is important. I want what He has for me. Life isn’t about me and who I am with or not with. Want to get ready for the weekend with me? Let’s praise and worship:
Have an amazing weekend. “See” you on Monday ;).
