Laying in the grass and looking into the sky is the best feeling. This is especially true following hectic weeks. The feeling that as gravity leaves your body with only the sky to be consumed into is the best feeling summer has to offer.
I hope you enjoyed today's spread presented above; I hope you understood it. On the surface, this story is about my dream world. Yes, I am a daily dreamer, many times thinking about twirling around and existing as a part of God's creation. If I was able to live out my daily dreams they would allow me to wander in nature and discover warmth and secret locations where butterflies dance and grasshoppers race. But, the underlying story is all based off today's gospel story from Luke 12. In Luke 12, Jesus teaches the importance of not living life in preparation for tomorrow or to gain things of this world because you may be here today and not here tomorrow. If you look at Luke 12:29-31, Jesus also shares that if we focus on seeking the kingdom of God, the basics for life will be provided to us.
"Our brother Jesus tells us
not to worry, because we should
be more eager to seek heaven
than seeking the stuff of this world."
Seriously, I find myself caught up with the action of doing instead of recalling why I am pursuing it, as I wrote about in The Game of Success: Part II. This is why it's important to remember we need to seek after the Lord and have friends that remind us of this importance. Who reminds you?
Wandering and seeking consumed today's photos because it takes a lot of searching before you find something perfect. It takes a long time to discover something so beautiful and perfect that you just want to embrace it forever. Do you disagree? In today's spread, the moment I found the light and embraced its warmth, I basked in it's perfection.
"This is like seeking God. You may stumble,
you may get poked by some thorns, you
may feel lost at moments, but once you
find His love and perfection, it is an
embrace you will never want to let go of."
My heart is currently seeking a greater embrace with the Lord. I remember what it was like to be in a full embrace, but then I got caught up in running after the stuff of this world. No thing compares to a relationship with God. I can bet my life on that.
