Glimpses of the Glorious, Heavenly Blessings by Patty Rife
I've been thinking about the time I was looking out my door after a lengthy rain. Everything was drenched, and as the sun came out from behind the clouds it's rays touched the leaves of a holly bush. I had never seen anything so amazing...The bush shone red with a brilliance that glimmered as if the bush was on fire. Seeing this thrilled me because I had prayed that day for a glimpse of God, a sign that he was with me....It was for my eyes only since there was no one around with which to share this moment and I did not have a camera handy to capture it to share with anyone else. It was my moment my glimpse of the glorious..
Another time I was driving to work on a cold February morning. I was traveling along on a familiar country road when the sun was just beginning to come over the hill. As it did the the bright rays swept over the frosted branches on every tree and every blade of grass. Instantly everything began to shimmer like a million diamonds on both sides of the road. I was awestruck by how magnificently glorious that moment was as I tried to take it all in. As far as I could see everything was sparkling with a brilliance beyond description. The sight continued as I traveled the rest of the way to my work place.
I was so excited when I got there that I wanted everyone to come outside to look at what I had seen but my coworkers were preoccupied with their work ,and some looked at me in a way that made me feel a little fanatical about such goings on. They didn't know and they didn't care that I had just had a glimpse of something glorious and wonderful. Another moment just for me...shared with me by a glorious creator out of his love for me...what a special blessing.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
