every word, deed and action one takes or does or receives.
A light in the cellar. A light in the attic. A light in the kitchen. A light on the night stand. The porch Light. And, the red light districts even know the power of light.
The light from the eyes reveal the intent of the soul. The light of the mind shines bright in words and actions. The heart (light) wattage is stamped on a heart valve. Then of course the 3-way bulb gives shades of light on our words, deeds and actions.
Do you know your wattage, color, and use? Matthew 25, informs us, ” You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand_shine! Keep open house, be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” Message vs.15.16
I once told a friend of mine, an artist, your light is a night light about the size of an acorn. It shines from your soul to the image it gives others on canvas of form and color. What a light! Just pause and think, an acorn, a small acorn is the fruit of the oak!
I think, I too, have a night light in my soul about the size of an acorn. It falls from my mouth and gives light on a ‘garden of renown’ giving a path with Wisdom Words for others to see and review the path they will take. Isaiah 58:11 “The Lord will guide you continually…you shall be like a watered garden…” I love the healing words of the prophet Isaiah 57, “Desire gave you renewed strength, and you did not grow weary.” (57:10b NLT) (I believe Isaiah was talking to the ones not following God here but does it not apply to the ones trying to follow Christ). We may grow weary in our search, but we will never give up. Yes, your desire for truth gives you renewed strength, and you will not grow weary. We will not grow weary in doing good.
A walk through the garden of renown. Yes, a beautiful healing garden. The Word of God, Wisdom Words, gives us the “The Healing Garden”. Our Lord, the master gardener, provides the strength we need when we need it. Maybe a beautiful PEONY in bloom at just the right time. A BAND OF RENOWN with music of tranquility with light for composure and peace. Wisdom Words from the wind of words, chimes of delight, giving hope in contemplation.
As we take the time to enjoy the light of another we will experience a time of recovery deep in our souls. Yes, a candle light in the dark night of the soul. A walk through the garden will reveal art, music, birds, sounds, and beauty for healing. One might stop and pick a medicinal plant or herb. One will certainly pause, meditate, reflect and pick a Rose of choice color to delight the eye, nose and nostalgia of love.
I have come to understand from my experience that the time of awakening is the beginning of the healing journey. It is not the end, it’s the beginning. Yes, there is a light behind every word, deed and action one takes and receives. That light gives hope, peace and healing when it shines from a well watered garden.
