I caught a glimpse of Your splendor In the corner of my eye The most beautiful thing I've ever seen And it was like a flash of lightning Reflected off the sky And I know I'll never be the same
Glory. Hmmmm...I love that word. As I listened, I sat down at my computer to look up the lyrics. Life was good.
But then...it turned into one of "those days". I wasn't feeling grateful. I was cranky. I didn't feel God near. As we drove into town that night, these were the scenes before us. Brilliant sunlight shining out from the clouds and a rainbow splashed across a dark and dreary sky. In an instant, I thought..."GLORY". I was reminded of that morning and the song.
I love it when He speaks to me so clearly...through His creation and music. Two methods that I can understand easily. I watched the sky...and my heart finally understood what He had been trying to tell me all day. If He has the power to create these works of art in the sky, He certainly has the power to work in my life.
Once we've seen God's glory...we are NEVER the same. But thankfully, He is ALWAYS the same. He never changes. He never stops loving me even through my darkest days and my lack of faith. He is patient and loving. He is LIGHT...the rainbow that cuts through even the darkest of days.
