This past week, I've had many of those emotions, yet I still acknowledge the many blessings that are so constant in my life - first and foremost, the never-ending presence of God, who never bats an eye when I'm "going through it."
During Wednesday night Bible Study at my church, we viewed an amazing documentary, Wanderlust's Production of Father of Lights, directed by Darren Wilson. This is the final installment of the God Trilogy, but is the only one I've seen. It's about love and people of different cultures and religions having experiences of God and Christianity. (A trailer of the movie is below.)
Although above I've acknowledged God's unrelenting presence in my life, my feelings of joy in knowing his presence weren't so evident to me this week. Because of this movie, I realized my disconnection with God was why this week was so difficult for me internally.
Today I celebrate that the Holy Spirit is such a "big boy" (a quote from the movie) that he can handle it when we aren't as strong or open to him in daily life, but that he's always there waiting and searching for us to reach out for him whenever we're ready.
I'm wishing you guys wonderful God connections and celebrations!
Thanks VikLit for another weekly sharing of great and small celebrations.
~~And yes! I've got to join in the fun of promoting blogging guru Alex Cavanaugh's cover reveal:
CassaStorm by Alex J. Cavanaugh
Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, his only struggles are occasional rogue pirate raids and endless government bureaucracies. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.
After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, shaking Bassan to the core and threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.
Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could be on its way back. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…
