Dear Treasured Readers,
I posted this over a year ago, but I’ve discovered it’s as relevant today as it was yesterday.
Yours in Him,
I wait in the shadows.
I know, Heavenly Father, that You are here. I am fully present: mind, body and soul. I want to draw near, I really do, but I think I will stay here in the shadows for a little while.
I feel unworthy.
Are you calling me there into the light? Sorry, Sir, I don’t think I can do that right now.
He knows why I want to stay in the shadows and gently reminds my worth isn’t in me, but Him. Awe, but I like the shadows – it’s comfortable here and safe.
Are you sure it’s okay to come out?
I step out slowly into the light, unsure of myself and unsteady on my feet.
His touch! Oh, my! It floods my soul, pierces my heart and refreshes my body. I have found real safety – discovered comfort in the God of all Comfort. His peace is welcome and pleasant. His love reaches every fiber of my being.
How could I have been so blind?
It was cold there in the shadows. How could I have trusted a lie for so many years? Nothing but shadows in Shadowlands.
It’s a lie to keep me low – a lie to keep me from You. Oh, Truth Bearer, thank You for the truth
Send me Your light and Your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. (Psalm 43:3 NIV)
I remain in the light because He is in the light: my Life Partner, my Love and my ever-present help in times of trouble. God is my daily Companion – the strength of my life and my portion forever.
In the shadows I never knew Him. In the Light, He is my all in all.
It’s not how big our faith is in God, but how big our God is in our faith.Click To Tweet
Whom have I in heaven but Thee? And besides Thee, I desire nothing on earth. (Psalm 73:25 NIV)
