TOUCHED BY ETERNITY

Good Morning!

     Something to think about.   Many are touched in various ways by illness, death of a loved one, or other events.   Deception is everywhere only God touches in often gentle ways that draw us or hint to us of eternity.

Just a breath – only a touch.

Today, very early, it was not even 4am,  I reluctantly (because of need), got out of bed.  Through the window facing east I glimpsed the first touch from the rising sun.  Leaves and tree trunks through the intense darkness, were flecked by fingers of soft light in some places with a gentle pink colour.

I thought of Elijah who was pursued by evil and darkness (1Kings:19 5-8) …Deception made him believe his only hope was death.   Then an angel touched him.     (twice). This was God’s answer to his hopeless seeming need.

1. Touched ‘Arise and eat’.    Food

He went back to sleep.

2. Angel touched him again.   ‘eat and drink……now…go.’.

Matt. 8:3  Jesus put out His Hand and touched the leper.  ‘I am willing. Be Cleansed.’.   The leper was cleansed.

Particularly in these times when society is trying to infringe on all things beautiful and holy.  Ephesians 5:8 rings true.   Walk as children of Light.

You were once darkness but are now light in the Lord.    Walk as Children of LIGHT!.  (Keep eyes upwards and not even venture into the beguiling ways of intriguing darkness.). 

SHINE THE LIGHT SO OTHERS MAY SEE THAT GOD WILL BRING HIS MORNING TO EVERYONE’S DARKEST NIGHT IF THEY ONLY LIVE AND WALK ONWARDS WITH HOPE AND TRUST. 

Peace!    Prayers! and Love!

 

 

 

 

About Faye

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.
