On a bright sunny day if you look at a simple leaf you will find within it not just a single green leaf but a blending of many different shades of green that flow perfectly together to make the one green leaf. There are no stops or starts between variances of color. And yet if you mixed green paints in many different shades still you could not recreate the variances of color found in this one single leaf.
Similarly our lives — each moment, each experience, each thought and action is connected harmoniously minute by minute within the DIVINE, knit together with the threads of Divine Love. Together our day, our thoughts, words, and actions are knit together not just as an individual work of art but connected with those around us in a vast impressionistic masterpiece painting each adding his and her unique dots and dashes of color. No stroke, no color mars the beauty of the united effect. Only in eternity will our eyes be able to contemplate the grandeur of this work of art.
Lord, I praise you for the connectedness with which your love permeates my life. Let me surrender in trust to this wondrous truth. May I boldly paint vibrant strokes of color this day up on the canvas before me, right where You have placed me. Give me eyes to see the extraordinary in the ordinary as I step forward in Your Name proclaiming Your extravagant love through the colors I leave behind.
WHAT COLOR DO YOU ASPIRE TO BE THIS DAY IN YOUR CORNER OF THE CANVAS?
