Love, from the blue skies...


Yes, I felt the LOVE...as I traveled in the United Airways aircraft yesterday, I felt it all and I saw it all. The perspective from the deep blue skies.

I sat on the wings of the plane, at my favorite spot~ close to the window. At first, I just slept. And sometime at the middle of the journey, I woke up and began to look outside the window. The clouds were so white, and they made me smile (for no reason at all). I began to quietly sing, "Oh happy day, oh happy dayy, oh happy day, oh happy day...when Jesus washed, when Jesus washed, He washed my sins away!"

But as we were about to land, the plane began to gradually decrease and I started playing my usual game. In this game, I usually try to guess what all the little boxes are...I guess which boxes are schools, office buildings, mansions, apartments, warehouses, farm-yards, swimming pools, estates, e.t.c. I just love doing that. Trust me, I do that every single time I fly. But on this day, it meant something totally different to me. I began to think about God and how He views us from His throne. I don't know where that throne is, but I know that the bible says that "the earth is His footstool," and so I began to think of a mighty God. I thought of a royal figure, adorned with a kingly crown. And then I looked at one of the small boxes below again. And then it really hit me...

"what manner of a God is this? That He would choose to visit every one of us (one by one) in our little boxes. That He chooses to know us by name, and not just by groups. That He chooses to call us "friends," and that He chooses to call us CALLED, CHOSEN, a ROYAL PRISTHOOD."

Who is this mighty God? I looked at the oceans from the airplane, and I asked, "Who is this ARCHITECT?" Look at the way He constructed the landscape to look this good. Look at the way He separated the oceans from the land, and the mountains from the trees. Look at the roads that He gave man the intelligence to build. I was totally awe-struck. But as I decided to take my pen and paper to write about the beauty I could see below, the pilot announced and said, "we are about to land in Dayton, Ohio so fasten your seatbelts and get ready for landing..."

But my life will never be the same again...it was the intensity of the love I felt from the blue skies...

WOW Jaycee... how right you are...

I remember this song while reading this...
"What manner of man is this... the wind and the sea obey him... What manner of man is this... he opens blind eyes... he makes the lame walk...."

How beautiful it is that we can love God so much that we see Him in everything. He's truly an awesome God. Great writing. Remain blessed.

Beautiful song by the way, He is truly ALL that I could ever want because in Him all the other things consist.
