If I were chatting to God - a Lighthouse Parable idea - unedited
Posted by Shannan on Mon, 21 Jan 2019
Well, in my efforts to post more blogs once more in 2019 ... I can cover a variety of topics... so why not post my morning musing writings...
Here goes ...
Lord? How do I get that joy, the joy of being with YOU to explode from me?
IT ALREADY DOES MY ANGEL – IT ALREADY DOES – YOU COULDN’T FAKE TEETH PHOTO SMILE IF YOU TRIED ;)
Heh heh, thanks Lord, wish I could come to terms with it all inside of me too… how does a lighthouse realise and know its light? How does a lighthouse stay motivated to keep going?
THE LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER – LET ME – BE OPEN TO ME AND MY PROVISION AND MY CONSTANT PRESENCE AND LET ME WATCH OVER YOUR LIGHT – YOUR SOUL HOUSE WILL NEVER BE UNATTENDED AND YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER GO OUT – I PROMISE YOU THAT – I WILL KEEP IT AND TENDER TO IT, AND LOVE WATCHING THE NUMBER OF LIVES SAVED FROM THE STORMS OF LIFE DUE TO OUR TEAMWORK IN KEEPING THE CANDLE BURNING.
Lighthouses – Father – they stand alone – the ships out in the storm, they don’t come to the lighthouse and thank it for keeping them safe. . . They will go to YOU ... maybe they will realise they should thank those who have helped them get to where they need to be, maybe not ... Otherwise, I guess, the ships just dock and get on with things after their storm, or sail on through on their own to the next storm. The lighthouse just stands and shines.
UNLESS THE LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER SLOWLY, BUT SURELY BUILDS A SECOND LIGHTHOUSE (through those who have docked), AND THEN ANOTHER AND ANOTHER, SO THAT ALL IS REVEALED, SO THAT LIGHT AND LOVE SHINE IN ABUNDANCE. SO THAT THE COASTLINE IS FULL OF THE CREATIONS OF THE LIGHTHOUSE-KEEPER AND THOSE LIGHTHOUSES STAND TOGETHER, HELPING EACH OTHER; STANDING FIRM IN THE TRUST AND FAITH IN THEIR KEEPER. I AM BUILDING YOU A FELLOW LIGHTHOUSE – JUST GIVE ME EARTHLY TIME ... JUST GIVE ME EARTHLY TIME. AS I SAID THIS MORNING, EARTHLY TIME IS NOT MY TIME. INSTEAD, IT IS THE PHYSICAL SPACE IN WHICH SPIRIT CAN DWELL AND EXPERIENCE AND BE LIGHT BY CONTRAST TO THE DARK, IN A PHYSICAL FORM. THE LIGHT CANNOT KNOW ITSELF WITHOUT THE DARK, OR CONTRAST IN FORM.
I understand Lord, but that darkness, in the middle of the night can be so very, very dark.
YES, UNTIL YOU LIGHT A CANDLE, THEN THE DARK IS NO MORE. IT CANNOT BE, IT SHALL NOT BE. THE WORD WAS SENT INTO THE WORLD TO BRING LIGHT, AND THE WORLD CANNOT EXTINGUISH THE LIGHT. AS YOU HAVE TAKEN ON TO BELIEVE IN THE LIGHT ON EARTH AND SERVE THE LIGHT ON EARTH, YOUR SPIRIT HAS BECOME ETERNAL AND YOUR LIGHT HAS FOUND ITS STRENGTH ON THE ROCK TO BE A LIGHTHOUSE ON THE SHORES OF FEAR, HEARTACHE, HURT, BROKENNESS, JEALOUSY, REGRET, PAIN, INSECURITY AND ALL THE OTHER STORMS PEOPLE CHOOSE. THE LIGHTHOUSE-KEEPER WILL NEVER LET YOUR LIGHT GO OUT, OR STOP GIVING THOSE OUT IN THE STORMS THE CHOICE TO COME IN AND LIVE IN LIGHT, PEACE, LOVE AND JOY ON THE ROCK. IDEALLY CHOOSING TO BRING THEIR LIGHT; TO STAND ON THE ROCK AND REACH OUT INTO THE STORM THEMSELVES TO BRING THE LOST HOME AGAIN. EVERYONE SHOULD COME HOME AGAIN. IT IS ALWAYS WONDERFUL TO HAVE EVERYONE HOME AGAIN.
True, and I would love to leave here and be PROPERLY home again Lord, I really would… how are those arrangements coming along?
Ugh, ja, ok, no, fine. Yes, I get it, not my timing... yet ...
