HOLY MOMENTS

My sweet daughter spoke recently of a "Holy Moment" when she and her dear friends watched a sunset over Lake Michigan together.  AH--the Godly wisdom of one so young.




We all tend to limit holy moments to times such as these:



The presence of Heavenly Beings---



The birth of a Holy King



Those burning bush moments when God is present with us in a tangible manner.

But what is a Holy Moment?  

Mr. Webster tells us Holy is-exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness

I began to think of all the Holy Moments I have been blessed to experience in my lifetime--those moments when without one shadow of a doubt--God and all His righteousness was present--when the Holy God of the Universe made his tangible presence known in a real and perfect way.



For God has been present at the birth of each of my children and grandchildren and the miracle of creation was revisited and He was with me.



I have met him on the mountain tops, in the valleys, walking through the Alpine forest, staring at the reflection of a mountain lake.  As He showed me the magnificence of this world He created--He stood with me.



He has been the wings under my feet as I ran down the road and felt the wonder of  a body He created to glorify Him in all its endeavors--with Him always with me.


He walked beside me down every path and showed me the glory of His good plan while He walked with me.


He has held and counted every tear and been a constant presence in my grief--as He stood with me.

And He rejoiced with me in my laughter and delighted in my joy as He rejoiced with Me.

My life has been filled with Holy Moments--moments when the very presence of God was so tangible--so profoundly evident--so clearly visible---I stopped to wonder how anyone could doubt there is a God.

HOLY--HOLY--HOLY Moments---filled with grace---peace---joy--as I know that I know---my God is here.

 For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God,”
Job 19:25-26

  2. I love when those sacred moments show up in the daily grind, the routine, the ordinary. There He makes His holy presence known ... and everything takes on fresh meaning.

    Thanks for this beauty today, Lulu ...

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
