I was driving home from work today trying to decide what I wanted to write about tonight and for the life of me, I couldn't make up my mind! So I asked God, "God, what do You want me to write about?" And God said, "Tell them about my Goodness." Okay then.
About 2 years ago, I had a vision of God's Kingdom.
In my vision of the Kingdom, I was standing up on a very high montain and I could see all around me forever. It didn't end. The sky was yellow and orange like at sunrise and I saw streams and groves of trees. All of the groves were different colors, lavender, blue, green. And above the trees, down in the valley below me, I saw brightly colored birds flying. And it was quiet. I didn't hear a thing, but the land was singing! The arrangements of the groves and the colors were music! Its not music you hear with your ears, its music you feel with your soul. You know when you hear a live band and you "feel" the vibrations of the music in your body? Its rather like that.
As I looked out, and don't ask me how I saw this because I cannot tell you. But as I looked at the landscape, I saw all the threads that God had woven in my life to bring me to where I am today. I saw that not one thread was broken. It was as if someone had tied a piece of string to a tree before walking through a forest and let the string out as he walked through the forest; this tree would make him turn this way and that tree would make him turn that way. I saw these threads of my life and I realized that the trees were the events God had allowed and or created to keep the thread of my life going exactly where He wanted it!
When I saw and understood that God had been with me from the beginning, I was in awe. I was completely overwhelmed. Many times, I thought God had abandoned me but He never had. And when I saw how perfect God's plan was, when I saw how beautifully He had planted every tree, I saw His GOODNESS! I felt His GOODNESS and it saturated my very soul! It was at this point, where God lifted my "emotional circuit breaker" just a bit and allowed me to experience HIM. And I wept.
I saw just how intimately He involves Himself in our daily lives. And I KNEW He was GOOD. And I KNEW He loved me. And I KNEW He would always bring me what was best for me.....all I had to do was lovingly and gratefully acknowledge HIS right to be in control. And I knew peace. Perfect peace. There is such a difference between believing and KNOWING.
We think that we have experienced all that is possible for us to experience and maybe in this world that is true, but the GOOODNESS of God that I felt in my vision is a feeling NOT of this world. God is GOOD....very, very Good.
