I Will See God

Every day I try to understand what special message God has sent me. I believe He is always speaking, and my job is to listen, and then discern the directive in the message. Sometimes it is obvious. Sometimes, I can not think of a single special message. Often, at times like that, I draw. I don't usually direct consciously what I will draw. It just flows out of me.

Almost always, a horse emerges. Now, all I drew for the first 18 years of my life was horses, so this is not surprising. Horses reign in a special place in my subconscious and in my heart. But the environment the horse is in is often a total surprise. I don't understand what creativity flows from, but I do believe it is a gift from God, and should never be taken for granted.

So, I wasn't sure what God wanted me to write about for today. As always, when faced with this, I began to draw. The picture above is what developed.

My audiobook narrator produced this incredible video to promote Joe -The Horse Nobody Loved. She read from my prologue. It is so beautiful. (click here.) 
I didn't know she was producing it and it arrived in my inbox this morning. As I watched the video, I cried. The words she read from my book about a horse I loved represented how I feel about everything I love on earth. The hard lesson from my horse is the hard lesson of all of life.

I won't spoil it. You should watch it yourself.

But when I finished crying my eyes out, I understood why I drew the horse looking out at the horizon amidst the colorful reeds. He is waiting.

He is waiting for the wonder and glory of the God of all eternity to complete His work. He is waiting for the day when joy will be complete, unmarred by sin or injustice. He is waiting with expectation that He will see God, and all will be well.

“And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you."
*****************

Lamentations 3:25 

The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!

“And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.
