I’ve been anticipating, yearning for, standing-on-my-tiptoes for SPRING! Hallelujah! It’s finally here.
It was late afternoon the other day as I was working at my computer. Sunlight blazed through my office window at just the right angle to expose EVERY speck of dust that was either on the desk, the computer, the bookcase nearby or in the air! I was bummed!
What?! I thought this room was clean. But the light coming in from this different perspective highlighted all my lick-and-a-promise efforts to clean. Let’s be clear here: I don’t like cleaning. But this was something that I just couldn’t ignore!
So, as I made plans to fit cleaning into my schedule (this will be more than a swipe with a Swiffer) it occurred to me that without allowing the light to come into our lives from a different perspective, we could just sit in the dust, like Mrs. Havisham, for the rest of our lives.
I’m thinking SON Light. The pure truth of the Word of God is just the thing to expose stale lives that are stuck in lifeless routines, hoping for something different to happen sometime.
Think about this: Jesus said in John 10:10 that He came so that we could have abundant life. That sounds very different from living life in the rear view mirror, staying stuck in the past or settling for less than the best in the here and now.
Go ahead! Change that perspective! Allow the Light to flood your heart and mind from a different perspective. You just may find that those dreams God put in your heart years ago are still there, albeit under a heavy coat of dust!
