To each of us God gave His image and we are called light bearers because our job is to reflect HIS Image to all that know us.
Just as a tree bares fruit in its season we will be made complete only when we have the ability to bear fruit in our season.
The purpose of man has always been to serve God, the one who has dominion over him. Man has been given life solely to carry the fire of truth…to be a Pillar of Fire in the darkness. Just like the runners carrying the Olympic Torch we too run a race to the finish line but the torch we carry is the torch of truth …in a race of truth.
So please know that every day the Lord waits patiently to spend time with you, His Child. He knows you intimately, but you, if you are honest with yourself will admit you hardly know HIM because the fire you once had has turned to embers. The passion you once had has become lukewarm.
Go back and rekindle the memories written in His Word. Know that you are an ordinary person in the hand of an Extraordinary GOD. He remembers you always because you have been “Inscribed On The Palms of HIS HANDS” Isaiah 49:12. With the blood of HIS One and ONLY SON.
My soul’s pursuit, the passion of my heart, is to stay near to the heart of God. The only way to have the Lord as your shepherd in this life is to stay in His Word.
So my friend……Go back and do the things you did in the beginning. Begin again to devour the Bitter Sweet Word of God. His words will renew your strength, His words will renew your compassion and His words will renew your desire to reach out to the walking dead all around you.
All people are desperate for a cool cup of water; given to them by you on behalf of the ONE you SERVE, to quench their thirst in this desert valley of shadows we call earth.
So go back to the HOLY BIBLE to the Talking Book and begin again the story of the ages. No you will not hear audible words, but the words you read will ignite the embers in your heart, your mind and your spirit.
Then the Holy Spirit will once again burn brightly within you so that the image of God you carry will again shine like a Pillar of Fire and light up the darkness that surrounds you.
