SEE WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU!
Open that door!
and be glad in it."
(Psalm 118:24 NKJ)
The yard needed watering. I forced myself to get up to do something useful. Walking through the dark garage I approached the side door to the yard. As my hand reached for the knob, the gentle, quiet, re-assuring voice of Jesus whispered to my heart, "See what I have for you!"
I opened the door into His light. Innumerable shades and hues of colors surrounded me, as only the work of the Master Creator could offer! His Spirit immediately lifted my spirit and guided me into such delights for this moment of time, just for me! He knew I needed this reminder to keep me from sinking farther into my dismal self-thoughts.
He gave the mocking bird to "...sing among the branches," (Psalm 104:12), the movement of winged creatures, from blossom to fragrant blossom and a soft "...wind out of His treasuries" (Psalm 135:7) to lift my face. It was all for me!
You made it all, with Wisdom at your side,
Made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.
...If you turned your back, they'd die in a minute--
Take back your Spirit and they die,
Revert to original mud;
Send out your Spirit and they spring to life--
The whole countryside in bloom and blossom."
(Psalm 104:24-30 The Message)
