illumination …

There’s nothin’ nicer than to know that I know that I know that I know! To have a propelling thrust from within; an igniting illumination letting me know all “is a go!”

I’m ever in the process of lookin’ for that “knowing”, but I realize more and more that it doesn’t usually start out with that absolute KNOWING. Sometimes, it does come from something God drops in my heart and I just know to do it, but usually it grows … it’s a process. Like I’ve been meditating in the Word, or something around me happens, and a desire begins to flicker to move out in a certain direction. I’ll start talkin’ it; have an impression to do something; begin to be attracted to certain things more than ever before … though I’m not really “knowing” why I’m doing it. For whatever reason and whatever the action , as I move out on these impetuses, the desire either flops over dead, or it grows. Sometimes faster, sometimes slower. Like writing … if you’d told me a few years ago I’d enjoy writing, or actually get excited when I knew I had to write something … like I can’t wait to get my fingers dancing on the keyboard … I would have laughed … would not have meant a thing to me. But I had this little, tiny, tiny inkling of a thought one day that I might like to TRY to put pen to paper of what I saw and thought as I took my almost daily walks. Actually it began when I realized I could take photos with my cell phone, then it grew to wanting to comment on them. What can I say? Now I even enjoy composing business emails 🙂

I’m saying, “I KNOW this … that I will always KNOW what to do because You, the Greater One in me, are always leading me into all Truth. I will always KNOW if I’m going the right way, because You are my Good Shepherd, and You are leading me like a sheep, (and I know they’re not the smartest cookies on the block) straight smack dab down the right path. I KNOW that You will catch me if I fall and correct me for my safety cause I KNOW You love me. You are the One creating in me the desire and power to do Your will. Little did I know Your will would be so wonderful. I thank You so much. Please take the lead, and I will follow today. I love You with all my being, and I will to love others as You love me … mercifully. I take all this. I have it, and I thank You. And I do forgive! All in Jesus name.”

JOHN 16:12   But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is.   MSG

PROVERBS 20:27   The spirit of people is the lantern of the Lord, and it seeketh out all our innermost secrets.   WYCLIFF
