If I could wish you anything, my desire is you experience the divine reality the prophet Isaiah described as the heavenly dominion and throne room of God. I looked and reflected upon a remarkable scene, where I contemplated you, and I am made for God’s enjoyment and to dwell in union with God and with each other forever. (Divine Partakers) My hope is you may open your heart like me when I saw God high and lifted up and encounter the personal and life-giving creator of the universe.
The Christian life is a personal relationship with Christ and living in peace with God, and by learning to forgive so, we may live in unity with one another. In my life the more I see of God, the more I reflect upon my true identity. When I look at myself in the light of God’s love, the more I comprehend the darkness and war waging inside the false self I portray to others around me. The light overcomes my night and the darkness flees for the light brings freedom from the ever-present fears that control and manipulate us. When I saw God, the little world I created shook to the core, and it humbled me, but it also provided me with the faith and confidence to face whatever comes my way.
I contemplate every day that paradise is all around me as I open my eyes to see the resurrected Christ in the glorious light of a billion hot stars. We are joined with him forever moment by moment by the Holy Spirit. (CAC)
In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. Isaiah 6:1 ASV
