I don’t know about you but I need reminding….
That I don’t know everything and that the things I think I know still need some refining.
I walked home the other evening. Is it okay to say here, I believe God’s Spirit was speaking to mine…Because I turned a corner, when I turned that corner back to my driveway.
I need this field. Because looking out I think I see it, but I don’t… My mind runs wild for a second as I simply take it in for a moment. My brain He gave says, “there could and most likely is, little birds nesting in those tall flowing grasses, likely millions of insects doing whatever it is they do best, and a few foxes finding their hole to rest…” Not to mention the shades of green no one’s been able to duplicate yet…
And seeing a life size area sized up to be laid down by a few graceful deer, I knew someone had been resting there the night before.
But most of these I couldn’t see. They were my best guesses, my creative imaginings, or maybe a small dose of life experience kicking in.
Standing still I realized and remembered something.
This is only one way He reminds me. I need Him to see.
I need home. I need a neighbor just up the road to meet and to know. I need you friend, who’s reading. I need my church doors to remain open so His Holy Spirit can flow in.
Because alone, I see only glimpses of His glory. And for this, I thank Him.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you”.
John 14:26 ESV.
