A commercial came on the other night–and the music was neat, and I had been hearing it without seeing it.
So after about the third round of this particular “app” commercial–I watched–absorbed.
At the end I thought, “How cool! I think I’ll download the app”, so I proceeded to download. When it finished, I opened it, expected to “see”…but all I saw was my living room ceiling.
“You dummy”, I said to myself….”you gotta go outside!”
But rather than leave my cozy nest on the couch, I set about exploring the app.
I clicked on “STARS”….
“To see the stars you must pay the price.” That statement popped then rolled in my head the instant I saw the price beside the stars…
Well, I’m not one to just “click” on every single interesting app. If it’s free…and has good reviews, then I likely will…this one wasn’t fully free. But it had good reviews.
“To see the stars you must pay the price”.
I want to see the stars…not just the kind that roll around Sylvester the cat when he gets conked on the head…but the stars that only God can bring about in our lives.
There is something special about gazing up in the black velvet sky–and seeing all these twinkling, blinking lights, billions of miles away–and remembering The Creator.
You are not here by chance. I am not typing this by chance. But by a careful orchestration of events of my life and yours.
I thought the “thought” of the stars this week…and even shared it twice this week…and God knew both times who and how it would affect me, as well as the listener. “To see the stars you must pay the price”.
So, Listener. How did it affect you?
Is there something so “far out of reach” that you think it’s unattainable? It’s not.
The Bible says “with God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
In 2009 Tiffany Stuart bought me a card–it was significant. She wrote in it and sealed it up in November of 2009, but didn’t mail it until January 2010. The significance is what was happening at both times. In November, I began praying about something that would alter my course. In January I acted on what I believed God was saying. Her words in pen came on the very day of my action. His message of confirmation.
The front cover of the card was a girl “reaching for the stars”…
I began to do just that…on tip-toe I reach up–for more of Him. His calling on my life, His direction to follow, and His word in my heart–ready to share at any time–with anyone.
One of my biggest encouragers, Connie Haile, sent me this picture:
Is there a “dream” you are dreaming…
Perhaps it seems as distant as the stars…
Yesterday I was compelled to send a message to 3 birdie friends…
“reach for the stars…follow that dream”.
I didn’t send the message because I stayed busy at work…but today….
I’ve arrived home–sitting on my porch, looking up at the sky and imagining the stars...
They are attainable.
