The Sky Appeared To Split

It had been a gloomy overcast day.

Heavy clouds totally obscured the sun.

I realized as I walked down the forestry road ,that night was fast

approaching.

I looked up,

The sun as it sank in the western sky, suddenly burst out

with a blazing slash of light.

It did not last long, but the dying day briefly flooded the paddock with light.

Rays touched the trees and it looked like an ocean, shrouded in mist. The picture above only captured a brief moment.

These are the thoughts which came to mind.

  1. Even at the close of life a light can blaze.

ALL HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF THE RISEN LORD.

Jesus said. I am the Light of the world those who follow Me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the Light of Life. John 8; V12

Keep looking up dear Ones.

Each in your own way. KEEP THE CHRIST LIGHT SHINING……IN and THROUGH You.

His Life is abundant!

BUTTERFLY PRAYER – TWIN ARROWS OF GRACE

  1. My desire for HIM means I desire to STAND in this broken world with uplifted hands.

Today spiritually. I release millions of butterflies across the world asking the ONE higher than us all, that these symbols of His Divine Grace, FAITH, HOPE and resurrection LIFE Will be seen by spiritual eyes looking upwards and felt in places of need and despair. Beauty on the wind.

2. For Christian believers who may feel constrained by circumstances I pray….. .remember the lesson of the butterfly……….often a struggle to live then shut in darkness for a long time…….

God’s Plan was for a wonderful miracle of change yet still there was a struggle to get out of bondage into the freedom to soar as a butterfly,

Dear Ones this is our story………may we rejoice greatly in this confined period. Allow Him to change us to be more and more like our Saviour.

Into HIS IMAGE.

Then we too in the glory of a new life will soar upwards free higher, higher far than any butterfly. The struggle of the constraints of this earth are every bit as diffucult as the butterfly journey to ‘Get out’.

live abundantly in this day……………..LIFE NOW is ABUNDANT when He is in it.

Blessings!

THE BOX – A LEGACY OF NEW BEGINNINGS

The old man knew he had a terminal illness. His days were numbered.

He reasoned in his mind that he had a few choices.

  1. He could sit in his chair, read, paint , do a puzzle – yes he could…..and yes he did.
  2. He could remain comfortable and ensure that his life was peaceful and not complicated by stress. Yes, he could and he did.

But then he had an idea. He was going to welcome each new morning as a NEW beginning. He would write a simple sentence or maybe even record just a few words of his feelings, the weather, or a one word honest comment. BUT, he would also find a small object, painting symbol each day, He kept it all on a box marked ‘Papa Pete’s final journey.’ He knew the idea was inspired by God.

The legacy in this box is full of treasures. It covers only eighteen months but what wonderful beauty, faith, hope and appreciation for life. His personal writing under the lid made sense of the whole.

He had written…..I know that my God Lives and I know He is with me ALL THE WAY.

There are small pictures. Notes of honesty expressing pain and suffering. There are vibrant images of Hope and surity of eternity.

The beautiful stones, pressed flowers, shells, tiny pictures of his wife children and grandchildren have minute sticker images in some corners. A smiley, A star, or a ball, or drawn image of what he felt or knew about the person.

Pete’s Box is a great collection but the basic truth of this story is……..

He learned to welcome each day as A NEW BEGINNING.

I believe it is a good lesson for us all. HAVE A GREAT NEW DAY!

Blessings and love.

TURMOIL – SURRENDERED………. PEACE

Good Morning!

In the midst of it all what should I be doing? I asked of the Lord. More prayer? Fasting? more Zoom attendance? At my age in my circumstances What? He said….

STAND!

‘Create in me a clean pure heart.’

With faith I will slip on the whole Armour of God. Eps.6;4

IN his STRENGTH alone I will STAND. Not for myself but for WHOEVER as He leads and guides. vast world………Overwhelming needs.

Maybe you as well are being called to STAND. (even if you are seated) no need for lots of words. In HIS PRESENCE. Heavenwards focussed……..

Father, May YOUR will be done

Drifting feather brought HOPE

Good MorningA_single_white_feather_closeup

      The paddocks were devastated  by drought and bushfire.     The heart-broken man walked his  lifeless property.    All his cattle had perished.  His wife and children had relocated to the city.  He wondered if they could ever rebuild the remnants of their lives.        He looked up into the cloudless blindingly blue sky.

Suddenly a bird flew across.   It was whistling.  Almost like it serenaded the day.

It did not linger but flew back to the small cluster of trees in the far, far distance.

As it flew overhead, a single white feather floated down and settled on the brown, scarred earth.

The words I will make everything beautiful again in its time. came into his mind.

He picked up the feather, put it in his pocket.

One day in the library he laminated it and placed it in his bible.

This precious bible and its bookmark remains throughout all the current sorrows and crises as an enduring reminder.

It marks the ancient reflection written in eccs.3 v 11.God has made everything beautiful in its time.

The Promises of Jesus in our day are restoration and healing. In HIM now indeed all things will ONE day be everlastingly beautiful.           

         It became Jack’s TRUTH. 

           It is ours too! 

            Blessings!    You are loved!

UNSEEN WORLD- A child’s Innocent Eyes

                  Good Morning!

angel2

Therefore. we do not lose heart, Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day…So, we fix our eyes on NOT what is seen, but what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary but what is UNSEEN is eternal.  (2Cor 4-16 NIV)  

In this fractured society can we, as blood-bought children, keep our eyes  focussed UPWARDS – journey with HIM- and glimpse the unseen world through the eyes of a child?

This is a  thought to prayerfully ponder.

When I was a little girl, with limited understanding of God,  and no knowledge of a spirit world, I saw angels in a dark corner of an old church. There was a bright light and they (  Spirit beings winged and  ethereal) were worshipping and praying

Adults who heard my childish cry of JOY peered into the corner where I pointed. They saw nothing!      I was cautioned to be quiet and my mother urged to teach me about imagination.

I knew what I had SEEN and my life of searching for a God who was all things; Heavenly, earthly and spiritually, began.    I was forever cautious about what I again shared.

In the Bible I found my answer.

I learned the warnings about pursuing only spiritual things and focussing on that which was eternal.

My answer came with our TRIUNE GOD who is indeed SO BIG His influence is in ALL areas.

Yet, on a Cross He came as Saviour for ALL.

 I AM THE WAY.       FOLLOW ME!  

What u n s e e n things of beauty will be ours to see if we keep living, walking, loving Christ, following in His Way with our looking UPWARDS.

Grace! Peace! and Love! to you.
