To Be Set Free

John Constable-424836

As I gazed through the car window the other day I was taken in by the opulent beauty of the sky overhead.  There were grey and white clouds softly caressing each other as they loosely billowed over the elusive azure in the background.  It appeared as though the blue was fighting against the grey and white in front of it in an attempt to break free and possess the entire sky. There were a few shimmering moments where I could see the sun trying to poke its way out in an attempt to brighten the day and illuminate it into a scintillating sapphire luminescence.  I remember thinking the scene looked just like a painting.  My heart was overwhelmed.

I thought how incredibly parallel to what I am experiencing in my own life right now. There are grey moments full of disease and pain seeming to try to block out the colorful sense of who I truly am underneath.  The grey seems thick at times and in a desperate attempt to break free I realize I cannot do it on my own. I need the light of Jesus that is shining in me to help me break through.  It is only through His strength in me that those dark days become days filled with His bright light.

 It can be so easy to be swept away by life’s storms if we aren’t careful though.  As day turns into night and we are once again cast into darkness, it is easy to lose sight of that beacon of light.  We find ourselves alone in the shadows unable to hear His voice as those clouds once again loom overhead.

It is through this time of struggle however that we need to reach within and find that hidden strength and listen to that inner voice.  The voice we know is from God.  We need to let Him catch us, to release us from anything that is holding us back from living that live He intended for us, be that disease or anything else that is weighing us down.  We need to let go and allow Him to take control in order for us “to be set free.”
