The morning sky looked clear with low clouds on the horizon making for a beautiful ocean sunrise. The horizon changed brilliant shades of orange and red as the sun illuminated the clouds. Chris Tomlin’s worship songs lifted my soul as I sang along.
After the sun actually broke above the horizon, I noticed that the sky above me was not clear at all. It was covered with cirrus clouds.
There were more textures. I thought everything to see in the sky was over at the horizon. But above me were more designs that began to illuminate.
How interesting. More light had revealed things more clearly.
That’s why Kay and I are taking this sabbatical time. We are allowing God to shine his light. We are asking him to help us see more clearly. We are celebrating our last 12 years. We are asking him to reveal the next years. He is shining his light. We are being intentional about seeking him. We are not seeking just his plans, but seeking him. He will reveal when he is ready.
Just like the sun revealed the clouds in the sky at the right time, God reveals at the right time … and the picture will be beautiful.
