The Blessing Is…

I did not do much yesterday.  I read some.  I started with Jeremiah, Psalms, 2 Thessalonians, Revelation 4 and other prayers from Revelation.  I enjoyed the prayers from Revelation so much I decided to read the whole book.

I read it out loud because I like to.  I can hear it.  Read it with passion.  This has the potential to distract my mind from the pain.  As I started chapter 9, the pain crept in and I kept reading.  It went away and returned.  Then I read Revelation 21:11

having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.  –Revelation 21:11

The words here are beautiful.  They remind me of a person.  I love to associate scripture with people.  I am able to remember them.  Pray for them.  But it can also be burdensome when you do not really want to remember them.  Remember the glory of God that radiates from them.  It seems to be a rare quality.

So I finished up and went to my white board a few minutes later.  I was thinking upon the path that leads to blessings.  And what the blessing is.  After some time I think the blessing is God’s glory.  The chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.  Wouldn’t that make the blessing His glory?  I have probably already said this.

I wrote a bit yesterday too.  Nothing that I can share.  I really need to pull out a new journal and begin a different system.  I just do not know what that system is yet so I cannot begin.  I thought it might be related to prayer.  Actually I believe it must be related to prayer but my mind has not completed the processing required to determine how.  Always working.

Remember the source of our strength.  Brought forth through prayer…

I also went to two homes.  I suppose they were technically Superbowl parties.  Although I did not really watch the game.  I think Denver won but I left the second place before the game was over.  Two completely different environments.  One peaceful.  One full of beer, cussing, and chaos.  I wonder how different our light shines in each place.  Can we pull out the lumen scale?  Oh, it is not seen with actual lumens you say.  I suppose you are correct.

Today is the day of salvation for someone.
