Most of the time the surface of the lake is choppy, restless from the wake of vacationers or from the pressing wind stirring the waters just enough that it seems as if its shell has been shattered. It appears dark and even murky in spots as it constantly turned over by the activities of the day. The sky is a stark contrast in its heavenly shades of blue separated with great distinction from the waters below.
But sometimes, if you are willing to wake before the rest of the world. When the only sound is the hush of the forest and a few lone birds greeting the morning sun. The lake is calm, and peaceful and so perfectly reflects the sky that you are almost unsure of where one begins as the other ends.
I find that I must find that time. The time when the world has gone silent and I am able to be alone with my creator. This is the only way that I can remember who’s image I was made to bear, when the toils of life make the waters murky and broken. I must find a time to be still. To hear the whisper of His song for me so that I can rest assured that these very things that stir me on the surface are helping to bring about the next wave of glory.
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory
Lord let my life so perfectly reflect your glorious face that no matter what trial or storm comes my way and disturbs the waters in my life, I can stand on the promise that I am being transformed from glory to glory. Let Your image never be separated from my words, thoughts and actions and let my beginnings and endings reflect you so perfectly that you receive the glory.
