Good Morning! – A mid-week thought.
Last night I had a dream.
In this dream thousands, and thousands of people were standing still and very quiet as a kaleidoscope of events unfolded before them. They listened, watched, and silently prayed. Media picked it up……. lines of ‘unknown’ people visibly simply stood very, very still. There was no sound of retaliation or violence just the absolutely hushed, SILENCE of ‘connected’ prayer. The schools, the talk the discussions became all about the united, powerful, silent block of people- no longer about the awful unhelpful ‘stuff’. The images I dreamt impacted me very much. It became a world-wide phenomena. It was not simply the numbers of people gathered who were disciplined in this manner, but the silence that caused eyes around to focus and question ‘who are these people?’.
Such can be the power of the Presence of Christ within us. Maybe, just maybe, as we are led of God to pray for each other and the world around. Maybe, this should be part of our public gatherings as well.
Just a thought!
To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under heaven.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
