As I write to you I am watching an incredible cotton candy sunrise. It was completely unexpected. But the gold to pink to purple hues were undeniably slipping through my cracked blinds.
You see I have set myself up to see the sun. I know that God creates beauty and light and a unique palette of color every single morning. I planned it this way. I intentionally set my living space with a view toward the east. Because I know God colors there first.
I crack my blinds, because I want to invite light in. I want my space to be filled with light. Not artificial light, but real, natural authentic light. From the source. I want the light to come in and reach me.
This morning that light came in with a beautiful soft hue. It reached me and I was drawn to the beauty of the light. So I pulled my blinds back and there is was. The sun had come. In beautiful morning color and splendor.
Have you set yourself up to see the Son? Have you invited His light to reach you? Have you arranged your life in anticipation for His beauty, His work, His brightening your day?
“The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.”
I am so glad I did not miss this gift today. I am so glad I did not have my world shut out to light. I am so glad I was able to see the sun.
Don’t be fooled by rain and storm clouds. The sun is shining warm & bright every day!
