3. Visions

Some things in life are almost unbelievable, aren’t they? Amazing is the power of God that gives us the freedom to act and think in a universe that remains ever so completely within His control. How is it that God is able to give us such a gift of freedom while promising also that we will never fall outside His grace and His plan? The vision of a life lived completely within God’s intention is a vision of peace and happiness, a vision of design and ultimate beauty.

 

The knowledge that we are in the hands of a nurturing and gracious God is the light that will guide the dark and difficult paths. Listen to the words of Mary in Amy Grant’s song “Breath of Heaven:” (www.amygrant.com)

 

I have traveled many moonless night
Cold and weary, with a babe inside
And I wonder what I’ve done
Holy Father, you have come
And chosen me now
To carry your son

I am waiting in a silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone,
Must I walk this path alone?
Be with me now
Be with me now

This week imagine that your every step is known and governed. Let the thought of God then replace your imagination.
