I am linking up with the world famous Random Journal Day movement that is sweeping the Internet lately. Haven't heard of it? Well, whatever...it's a BIG DEAL! :) Go here to get the details, then jump right in ok?
I opened an old journal to an entry written on February 20, 2008. I kinda-sorta "saw" a vision while enjoying worship time with my ministry school students. So of course I wrote it all down in my trusty journal that I carried with me at all times in those days...
"First I saw huge gold droplets hanging in the air, glistening and liquid. They were growing and changing as I watched them. Then I knew that each golden droplet was a student in our ministry school. I looked around at our class as they worshipped and saw each one as a heavy, rich, valuable portion of liquid gold! The huge value of each person was just so overwhelming.
Then I followed the picture to see that the golden globes were hanging from a really big tree and God pointed out to me that Hubs & I were the trunk and He (God) is the root structure that we are feeding the students with. I am so astonished and humbled at the work that we have stumbled into. It is such an honor and each of these precious golden droplets are of deep value and worth to Him and to His heart. This place is a beautiful and healthy place for gold to grow."
Today I breath deep as I read these words. God loves each of us so much! He looks at the youngest and the most raw newbies and sees fine gold. He lets His great eyes rest on us...you and me...and He measures our worth as so much higher than we do.
I grumbled into my mirror this morning. I did not...do not see gold. I saw thinning hair, pudgy cheeks and just plain blah. But this little journal entry rebuked me and reminded me that I am rich gold in His eyes. God looks at me and he gazes at you, and His heart is full of love, acceptance and pride. We are His. He counts us as valuable and beautiful.
What do you see in the mirror?
