I’d love to meet God for coffee today. I’d just like to see Him, maybe even stare at Him. Wouldn’t you? I’m guessing we’d be too afraid or awe-struck to actually go inside the coffee shop where the Creator of ALL things stood . . . sat . . . or levitated.
It turns out that God and I already have an appointment to meet face-to-face. God’s written the day/time down on His heavenly iCal but He won’t reveal the time to me. He said He’ll just come and pick me up when it’s time. (Psalm 139:16)
So, in the meantime, He gives me glimpses of Himself. I love those majestic glimpses. Here are a few peaks that I’ve enjoyed:
Awe-inspiring beauty of Yosemite
Care-free cartwheel of a child
Mysterious and therapeutic beauty of the Pacific Ocean
An orange orchard’s bright display of life
Depth of partnership revealed in a simple glance between a long-time couple
The desert cactus’ demonstration of perseverance
Refreshing hug after two people reconcile
Silky softness of baby’s skin
Uninhibited laugh of a child
The smell of fresh cut wood
Your heart feeling “alive again” after a desert season
When someone chooses to forgive
How about you? What are some majestic “God glimpses” you’ve seen?
