"Oh Mr. Sun, Sun..."
(If the title of this blog prompted you to start singing an
old BARNEY song for 90's.... well, ha! Sorry you have
that in your sub-conscience!) Not the reason for blog though...
In Michigan we haven't had a lot of sunshine this fall...
or even any "fallish-weather" for that matter.
We crave it.
Want its warmth.
Desire the joy that it brings.
Today, the sun has popped out.
My once gloomy little abode has brighten up.
Warmth & joy stream through the windows.
And wow... what's that in the corner?
What huddled under my desk & around the bottom of the piano?
LOTS of them!
They were NOT there yesterday... when it was cloudy.
I'm quite sure of it! Yes, pretty sure. Yeah. um...Right?
We crave the light of the presence of JESUS in our lives.
Want the warmth of His "closeness."
We desire the joy that it brings.
But when He really starts to shine His truth into our hearts
we suddenly become aware of the junk we've let live in the
hidden corners, or even the obvious ones...
It's as if they weren't there yesterday...
but they've obviously been there a while.
We crave the Son.
In reality, we actually crave the very light that exposes our
yuckiness inside. So, don't ignore them.
Get out the "Broom of the Spirit" and cut through the cob webs
and dust bunnies.
Weep. Repent. The enjoy the joy that's flooding in your heart!
(I had a serious experience of this today! SO GOOD!)
Son.... shine in all the corners of my life!
What's His light exposing in you
