It was pitch black and yet from my window a small but discernible light caught my eye. Attracted to the shining orb, there was a comfort stemming from the knowledge that all was not dark. I sat without moving drawn to the peacefulness it offered. I couldn’t see movement from beyond the curtains, yet warmth consumed me in the smoke rising from the chimney. Had I been a weary traveler, I would have chosen this home to rest from my sojourning, expecting to be wrapped in a cozy blanket and offered a warm bowl of soup.
The fact is I just want to be a mouthpiece, prayer warrior and servant of the One and Only thing that matters most in my life. It should be so simple. I just want to have dove eyes for the things of the Kingdom. I want to call Heaven to earth and live like the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. I want to walk in the Glory, heal the sick, raise the dead and cleanse the leper. I want to speak only of the things of Jesus & draw others to His breast.
And isn’t this what God has called us to in Matthew 5:14-16? “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.”
