Leap of Faith … again.

A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.  

         ~ Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, translated from Turkish

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

        ~ Revelation 21:2-4

     I was in my backyard the other night at dusk, when a light caught my eye.  It was about as big as Tinkerbell, and it moved faster than any insect I have ever seen. In fact, I saw nothing but the light.  I followed it with my eye until it disappeared in the deep green of the evening and the trees.  What it did for me was made me pause and be thankful; for light, for imagination, for the one I thought of immediately.

     The world had a great teacher in Jesus.  He indeed consumed himself and then lit the way for us, and continues to do so.  When things are so bleak we cannot see a way, he makes a way, where there is NO way.

     Today, keep your inner eye on Jesus, and your outer eye on the way He is making for you.  When you look back in just a short while, you will wonder how you missed it.
