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,
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
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
