During my walk this morning, I noticed the cross and stopped to look up at the sky. I was overwhelmed to say the least! When I looked below the clouds I could see it raining in the distance. I could determine where the light of the sun was popping through and where it was overcast. It brought to my mind our perception and how His Word is sharper than a two edge sword and will shed light into the darkness, amen? It also brought to mind Matthew 6:22-23 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole boy will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, you heart is that darkness.
While looking straight ahead…everything appeared hazy at best. This reminded me of how my perception and thinking according to the world or in my flesh could only get me so far. That even on my best day, I could only see like the light hazy way because my perception is tainted by my feelings and past experiences here on earth.
However, when I looked up above everything else, all I could see were rays of light. The sky was crystal clear; there was no interference, only His light to behold! I almost fell to my knees as the weight of His glory fell upon me! What a beautiful display of how pure our minds and vision can be while we are in the midst of His presence. Oh, how I long for more of Him…more of His love, truth, mercy, love, and wisdom! How clearly things appear and we can discern when our focus is on His light and we allow Him to lead the way!
