Some days I feel like I am in a fog...having trouble making sense of things and knowing I do not have a true perspective. Not much of anything has definition. There are things I think I need to know now and I can sometimes make out the outline of answers, but then the mist crawls across in wisps and I am left wondering again.
Corinthians 13:12 ~ We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!
This morning I looked outside and what greeted me was such a beautiful portrait of what I am feeling! Wanna see?
That's it! The sun (Son) is spotted through the mist and I start to have some clarity. What was once shrouded starts to make sense!
I just had to leave the computer and run outside with the camera again. As I was typing my thoughts, all of a sudden the room started to glow as the sun made it's full appearance and the mist was overshadowed. The mist was still there, but the sun was the dominant sight! Look at it blazing away!!
Isn't that the way it is in life? Sometimes His presence is a faint glow that I can barely make out and other times He bursts forth on the scene in such a show of radiance that His presence cannot be mistaken!
Ephesians 5:8-10 ~ You groped your way through that murk once, but no longer. You're out in the open now. The bright light of Christ makes your way plain. So no more stumbling around. Get on with it! The good, the right, the true—these are the actions appropriate for daylight hours. Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it.
Lord, I am tired of groping! I am tired of stumbling around! I desire to live in the bright Light of Christ so that my way is made plain. May I quit focusing on me and my own comforts and desires. Would I desire to be so hidden in You that Your radiance leaks out from me in such a way that everyone will catch a glimpse of You and Your radiance at work in me!!
