A Fallen Star and a Kiss From God

A star fell today.  The light that was called Pam no longer burns bright to bring life here on earth.  After the initial shock of her unexpected death, I had a choice to make.  I could wallow in my grief or I could dance in the glow of her lingering spirit.  I choose to dance.  DSC_0010

May we never forget how short the time we have been given is.  May we find joy in the simply things life has to offer;  like another star that shines, and presents itself so unexpectedly,  so simply, so sweetly and in his presence, in the brightness of his light, you can let go. You can laugh,  because nothing is required of you.  You can enter into His rest.  If only for a minute, you can simply live in the present and enjoy the moment that is.  It is a kiss from God.

Life is not always easy.  However, it can be joyous when we delight in the little kisses that God sends our way.  As we grow in Christ, reading His word, studying to show ourselves approved, rightly dividing the word of truth, worshiping in spirit and in truth, praying for guidance, praying for our families and friends, we develop a total dependency of Christ as our sole source for direction and provision. We embrace the fact that only He can bring healing to a hurting heart.

When we reach the point in our spiritual progression that we know Jesus really loves us, that He is concerned with every aspect of our lives; when we reach the point in our spiritual progression that we know Jesus will perfect the things that concern us, we can let go of all of our cares and rest in Him.

We have the blessed assurance that He is at work in us and for us.  Even in the darkness of death, He can make the light shine.

Our ability to enter into His rest is directly proportionate to our ability to believe His word.   As we utilize the word of God to navigate life, we gain victory over our circumstances.

God has given you many special gifts DL;  thank you for sharing your gift of laughter, my little kiss from God.  In your light the sting of death could not harm me.

1 Corinthians 15:54-55

So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Hebrews 4:8-10

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
