Fireflies Sharlee

Post by Sharlee » Sat Aug 16, 2014 2:31 pm

I sat on the back patio in my ole rocking chair to clear my head of all that was going on around me. I was overwhelmed and feeling very low. The night was so dark, not a star in the sky, no moon, no lights at all. I noticed a group of fireflies dancing through the air. Their light would come on but a second and then go off again. I sat memorized as they did their dance in front of me.

I thought about this and watched them. Their light shinned brightly for a second then went off again. I had to wonder was I like the fireflies. My light would shine brightly at times and then it was not shinning at all. Was I a lukewarm Christian? At times I felt safe and secure and satisfied with my walk in the Lord. Yet, when things turned around and troubles came, where was my light? I was usually busy doing this and that and would ware myself out. Did I ever give them to Jesus? Was I trying to do everything on my own?

I whispered a prayer to my Lord, “Oh Lord forgive me for pushing you aside and not letting you shine through me. Thinking I could do it by myself. Lord, I want to give it all to you for I am unable to handle this myself. Help me to do better and turn everything over to you. I see my short comings and ask that you do the leading and guiding in my life.”

I stood and once again watched the fireflies for a long while. How like God to use fireflies to show me the truth. “Thank you Lord.”

Dear Sharlee, I love this! I can see the Lord's sweetness all over it!! Such a neat contrast. I can almost hear our heavenly Father saying to you, "Thank you for listening to what I send. Thank you for loving Me that much, My daughter!!" :D -Happy Dawn
