Over the last year or two, occasionally in what I call “my quiet time” of reading and writing in my prayer journal, without knowing why, I would picture myself underwater, swimming towards the surface. All I could see above the water was light. Although I didn’t know what exactly to expect, I somehow knew I simply needed to reach the top.
It wasn’t until today that, finally, this made the least bit of sense to me. I thought to myself, “When I reach the surface of the water, what is it that I am breaking through?” My immediate thoughts were something I achieved, goals I finally reached, or finally being where God wanted me to be. But these just didn’t quite seem to fit. Finally, just about the least expected came to mind: Death.
So what was the point in this? What I got from this, was that there are things we can’t see, things we won’t understand, and won’t make sense until we are outside the restrictions of a human mind and our earthly bodies.
A lot of times I tend to think there’ll eventually be some sort of drastic change and suddenly everything will make sense. I am slowly realizing by having that mindset, I’m setting my eyes on earthly things instead of Christ and eternity—His light.
So I hope this is as much of an encouragement to you as it has been to me. When we set our eyes on God and the eternal, we will one day break through, as Christ overcame death, and there will be absolutely nothing that can take that away from us!
