The Evidence:


The noise coming from the rest of the members around the camp fire were getting to her. They were laughing, huffing, and panting over a critical debate. So she retreated. She took a long walk along the trail, but did not go too far from the rest of the crew. She stopped by the little blue lake to feel the breeze. That's when she saw it. It wasn't her imagination. She caught a glance of the tiny sea creature as it headed back under the waters. This was only a part of the evidence...and the evidence was everywhere...

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
.
They say that evidence is only something that is seen and felt. But what of those times when one feels an overwhelming sense of a surreal or external sensational astonishment surrounding one's entire being, yet cannot see, feel, or touch it?
.
They say that the universe is what holds the planets suspended in space. But what about the magnificent unseen hand that causes these planets to spin around in their unparalleled orbits?


They say having hind-sight is key. But how come everyday people don't see the traps they set up for themselves? How come lives are saved and rescued from pot-holes and ditches by the One Who sees them before they fall? How come righteous men fall seven times and receive mercy to rise up those many times again?
.
They say Mathematicians are crazy. But how come God calculated so well that He formed the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th? That His son was buried for 2 days and rose up on the 3rd day to destroy the kingdom of darkness? That the Israelites had to march around the walls of Jericho 6 times and on the 7th time give a loud shout?
.

They say they don't want rules and regulations. But yet gravity holds them in place, the laws of matter are constant, the chemical properties of elements are unique and do not change unless they undergo a chemical corrosive reaction, and there is no action that does not yield an equal and opposite reaction.

.
They say time heals all wounds. But yet some wounds stay for years and years, opened and slashed time and time again, the reminders of a past which cannot be hidden in the sand...until the Redeemer shows up and restores the soul.

.
They say everything will pass away one day, we only get to live life once. But what about the spoken Word that always stands, whether the sun is rising or falling, whether the earthquakes are moving the grounds, whether the hurricanes are blowing, or whether the rain or snow is falling, or whether the storms are tearing the sails apart?


They say there is no God...but the evidence of His works are every where...what an awesome God is He. Know Him.

Psalm 139:7-8 "Where can I go from Your presence, or where can I flee from Your Spirit? If I ascend to heaven You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there."

John said...

This is simply beautiful writing.

seye said...

Hey.. I posted a poem on my blog that had to do with your theme: Ps45

Rita said...

There is God, and no one can take this truth away...I don't need proof or evidence anymore, I know it...

Jaycee, may God continue to inspire you and bless all the gifts He has bestowed on you.

This is such a beautiful piece...

simeoneomobaba said...

Parakeet said...

Of cos there's God. Those people are just ignorant. Thank God for God!

Jaycee said...

Ade...I'm excited that you subscribed to the Light-Her-Lamp blog. The writings are inspirations from the lessons God teaches me every day from the bible. The art works are specifically selected to complemented the writings...

Newlife...you're welcome. I'm sooooo glad you have a brand new life now...*hugs*

Chukbyke...have a happy Sunday too...:)

DisGodkidd...hey dear. How na? I usually get my songs from projectplaylist.com. It allows users to create play lists, but not to download. You can listen to your favorite songs by creating your own personal play lists...you could try it out and see if you like it...

John...*smiles*

Seye...oh wow. I've gotta check that out right now...

Rita...Amen...wow...Amen...

Simeoneomobaba...Amen. You know, what makes me smile is that all our prayers are being heard by God...I won't take your prayers lightly...

Afrobabe...thanks. How bodi na? I hope ur weekend was beautiful...*wink*

Remi...LOL.

Parakeet...I pray that God will reveal Himself to many who have unanswered questions. My revelation that God is real is not so much because all my questions have been answered, it is because God has revealed Himself several times to me, in my many trials and daunting situations...when God shows up, every other thing dissolves...

azuka said...

Nice. No matter how much I question the existence of God, I'm still convinced there's a Higher Power watching over us.

aloted said...

yes o! totally feeling this post..
God was, God is.

He REGINS FOREVER MORE, THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM.

Only a fool says there is no God.

Thank you for sharing this Jaycee

badderchic said...

Feeling this... gaan

princesa said...

Yes o! Evidence abounds.

Emilia said...

We need more faith in Sweden too many atheist here! God does not exist here according to them....

God's child said...

My sister they say seeing is believing, but you and I both know believing is seeing!!

We are the church, may God's glory continue to be seen in our lives...all the days of my life I will speak of His praise, and in His name I will lift up my hands! May this week be a week filled with testimonies for everyone here so that the Lord may be glorified here on the earth!!

Ade Adesanya said...

I personally did not find true happiness until I put my faith in God instead of man. I realized that all I was doing was chasing after phantoms which never brought me anything but sadness then I discovered the Everlasting Light; since then, through the good times and the bad, I've kept my faith and never been happier. Thanks for your uplifting message :)

Debbie said...

What inspiration, you are so blessed and it's a good thing you are sharing with others. God's hand is on your life, keep up the good work.

Rita said...

Jayce: You have received a blogville award. Please check my blog for details...

Afronuts said...

boy...the nature of ur writings are ur gifts. They are bunch of deep stuff that require serious thot...

we need more stuff like this on blogville!

God's child said...

Jaycee my dear God has taken over your heart, I see it in the work He is doing through you. You have the mind of Christ and your writings are evidence of His creative wisdom in you. Keep living, and walking in the light!

Thanks for your comment
Yeah I love that song, its appropriately called "My Romance". I envision a little kid playing out in the park with their father...unto You be all the glory!!

Love the song on your page, discovered it at church earlier this year. You always have the most amazing songs!! Keep praising, Keep living and walking in the light, its OH so BRIGHT!!

aloted said...

how come i never hear the song playing on your blog...cant even find the music player! not fair..let me go and look again sha

Jaycee said...

Azuka...no amount of questioning can disprove that fact. Not even a PhD research paper. How are you doing? R u back from Naij now?

Aloted...I remembering how the idol of Dagon fell and broke into pieces when it was placed beside the ark of God. There's no one or any other power besides Him...

Badderchic...gaaaannn! Abi o? How r u doing? Have a blessed and wonderful day ahead dearie...:)

Princesa...seriously, it does abound. How have u been faring? Every time I see ur green little african/nubian woman avatar, it makes me smile for some reason...lol.

Emilia...one day the scales will fall off. You can be a light to those around you in Sweden, be a testimony...*smiles*

God's child...Amen, there are some things I'm expecting to happen this week...may my lips be filled with testimonies. Truly, seeing is believing. I think I made a comment earlier on (in response to Parakeet), that the times when I believed in God the most are those times when He showed up and my problems dissolved. He is very real...

Ade Adesanya...wow..."until you put your faith in God instead of man..." A whole book can be dedicated to this phrase and its importance thereof...I thank God for your life now...*smiles*

Debbie...Amen...thank you Deb...

Rita...thanks for that awesome award. I'm not sure if I can do a post about it soon, but it will be on my mind. You really deserved it, and you've challenged my honesty too...:)

Afronuts...your comment alone has arisen serious thoughts now...thanks.

God's child...thank God for amazing songs...:) May God keep taking over our hearts, Amen. It is people like you that hold candles up so they can shine brighter...:)

Aloted...pele dear! I'm not sure why you don't hear it. For some computers, you have to scroll downwards until you see the playlist before you start hearing it (which is helpful to some people who do not like the autostart feature). Have u found it now? (It's on the lower right side-bar).

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

Sometimes I dare to ask Him questions that is diservent of death, but thank God for His mercy. Times when I want to run far, for His training too severe, yet where can I Hide. I sense Him everywhere, and in everthing I do, all I need do, is wait, the storm too shall pass. One day I will break free from my circular motion, free to walk a straight line, and explore unchartered points of my life. I think Im bored already visiting the same places twice..lol.. I'm believing God I will break free, and Im decreeing, Im free. Yay.

Neers said...

there definitely is GOD, Jaycee! As usual... a calming post. Thank You!

God's child said...

Jaycee and not only shall u have them but Eph 3:20 style...exceedingly abundantly more than you can ever think or imagine!!
Get on a Praise fest, it is said that prayers bring the ministering angels to act but praise brings God on the scene and He perfects it! Give an hr of praise every day this week, solid praise, and at the end of this week see just how much rain will have fallen from the floodgates of heaven!

I love how this woman describes it This is a good and funny example
Go to this sermon by Rev Mrs Adejumo and go to the 53:40 mark and listen to this example that she gives
http://www.nigeriansermons.com/audio/adejumo_hadassah.wma

Also when u get a chance chk out this sermon is by Pastor Poju Oyemade, called Unveiling the Mysteries (of God) its absolutely amazing, it'll have you listening to it over and over and over again. I pray it blesses you as it has me.

Standtall said...

I love this. Thanks for sharing. I need God more than ever now

Jaycee said...

The Life...simply put, there's no place to hide from His love. His severe training is because He loves us.

Neers...may God keep drawing you more and more into His calm nature...*hugs*

God's child...thank you for those links. Hopefully I will get the chance to check them out...:)

Standtall...you are welcome. For whatever reason you need Him more than ever right now, He WILL show up!!! Yes, He will...
