We all do it, not catch the beauty of the moment. We spend too much of our lives looking down that we can’t see the upside of beauty. All the crud of the world pales in comparison to His presence! As we learn to move away from the past and allow the Holy Spirit to direct our future things become beautiful. He makes even the bitter, sweet.
For 365 days, the girls at Mary’s Song have the opportunity to do just that; step out of the past to embrace a future of love and joy in the Holy Ghost. How sweet it is to taste of the Lord’s freedom! Even when we look at creation it shouts a loud YES back to its Creator. Jesus tells us “blessed are ye that see, and your ears that hear, because the prophets of old longed to see what we see and to hear what we hear”. The beauty of Christ in us is a never-ending journey into the miraculous story of redemption and mystery of his love.
Recently, while in worship I begin to see vast rooms of treasuries; Christ seemed to be walking with me saying; “all that I have is here before you”. I kept having this reoccurring vision which made me ask the Lord, “Why is this being repeated to me as if I were missing something of importance?” Again, the vision came and this time I saw dancing silhouettes all around me in these rooms of Christ treasures. They were twirling and spinning as if in a playful dance.
“Blessed are your eyes which see”, the Lord says to each of us. THE WORLD DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE DRUG INDUCED EPIDEMIC! NOR THE CLOUD OF HOPELESSNESS THAT COVERS THE EARTH, but Christ out of his vast treasuries causes the weak to be made strong, the lame to walk again and the blind to see. The girls at Mary’s Song do indeed see the light at the end of the tunnel and that is Christ in them the hope of glory. Their victory stories can’t be contained in books only heaven can record them. Yes, the beauty of Christ is all around us. In the book of Revelation chapter three, Christ says we need to be anointed with eye salve so we can see; to see the world of His beauty and his love, to see the needs of the hurting around us, to see that we are but extensions of His hand.
HELEN KELLER said, “The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision. The seeing see very little. The panorama of color and action which fills the world is taken for granted. It is human, perhaps, to appreciate little that which we have and to long for that which we have not, but it is a great pity that in the world of light the gift of sight is used only as a mere convenience rather than as a means of adding fullness to life.” I pray you too will step into his fullness. Miracles never cease at Mary’s Song!
