The light shining in…….
I woke up this morning to a beautiful sight as the light streamed into my bedroom window in Oshkosh. I groggily made my way to the couch in my bedroom and sat down to stare at the light, after a few moments I got my iPhone and made this image. I was struck by one of Charles Stanley’s Life Principles to Live By, Number Nine, “Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees.”
I love airplanes and I enjoy the airplane photographers but this is the end of a very long run. I feel sorta like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day when he had to live the same day over and over. My life as a Tech Rep is sorta like that, same stuff in a different city, day after day, week after week, month after month. Just when you say why God, can’t I get off the merry go round, something happens that allows you to see what God sees. I had an old friend drop by this morning and as God arranged it, the media center fell deadly quiet for about a half hour. He shared with me that he had lost his son to a motorcycle accident some time back. We shared deeply about life, his loss, and God’s good ministering to him. If I had not been in the media center alone, when he came in, we would have never had such a meaningful conversation. I know he ministered to me, and I think God used me to minister to him. I’m pretty certain that is why I was in Oshkosh today.
So God does have a plan, and even when we can’t see it or understand, even when we are not too happy about it, it doesn’t prevent Him from making it come to pass. I think my prayer should be, “Father, please let me see the light come through the window every day you want me to be where you placed me, and keep my heart focused on you, and keep me willing and ready to serve you. Thank you for working with me even when I can’t see the forest for the trees….” Amen
