Day 3: Look Up


I feel like we have been living in a Snow Globe~

seeing the outside world from the inside,

yet unable to live in it like we used to.

I miss hugs. I miss going into homes.

I miss the freedom to do what I want to do

when I want to

with whomever I want to do it.

But that is not the way it is.

But one day when I look back on this chapter of my life

I will be so grateful

for this moment of time

because I have met

A REAL GOD

A REAL JESUS

&

A REAL HOLY SPIRIT

at such a deeper level

because THEY have been

hanging out with me

because I LOOKED UP.

But what if I didn't include THEM in my Snow Globe living?

Now that is a scary thought,

as my life is nothing without THEM.

Snow Globe Living~

Forced Isolation, when the only way out is to LOOK UP. .

JONAH experienced it from the belly of a whale~

“In my distress I called to the LORD, and HE answered me" (Jonah 2:1)

DAVID experienced it from the numerous caves where he was isolated~

"I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.

 I pour out before HIM my complaint; before HIM I tell my trouble" (Psalm 142:1-2)

Oh GOD heard. Oh GOD delivered.

Because they were never alone.

What about DANIEL who was isolated in the lion's den?

Not one tooth mark on his skin,

because

A REAL GOD was in HIS STORY

and the King witnessed it all

and experienced our REAL GOD~

"For HE is the living GOD and HE endures forever;

HIS kingdom will not be destroyed, HIS dominion will never end.

HE rescues and HE saves; HE performs signs and wonders

in the heavens and on the earth.

HE has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions" (Daniel 6:26-27)

REAL LIFE. REAL STORIES. REAL GOD.

So maybe Snow Globe isn't that bad after all~

as it is a forced stop

a forced opportunity

to encounter

A REAL GOD like you have never encountered before~

if only you & I & everyone else

just continue to LOOK UP

and invite HIM into our moments

so HE can do what HE is

"FAMOUS FOR" (listen to the song below)
