What fascinates you? Isn’t it true that sometimes the simplest things can be very fascinating? For instance, I like looking at spider’s webs because I think they’re amazing. Like a spider’s web there are amazing and fascinating everyday things that you probably don’t think about. How about a shadow? Have you ever thought that a shadow exists, but that it doesn’t have any substance? In the right place, at the right time, a shadow’s an accurate representation of an object blocking out light. Now it can be distorted in length and width depending on where the light source is located. For instance, when the sun’s low in the sky, a shadow’s long and skinny. It’s also distorted by the object onto which it’s cast, i.e. stairs, wall joining a floor, the trunk of a tree. A shadow isn’t the real thing, but simply a representation of a reality that gives the shadow its shape.
God the Holy Spirit has a lot to inspire you with. As you meditate on the Scripture section from Colossians 2:13-17, “You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross. So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality.”
God keep you and be gracious to you as you rest. God bless you.
