Color Everywhere

"…One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see."
 
John 9:25
 
Enjoying lunch with one of our pastors last week, we were discussing the trinity and how to explain the relationship between the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit to a new believer. As the third person in the trinity the Holy Spirit is much more than just the power source of the Christian life. Yes loved one, the Holy Spirit is our source of power and yet He is more, so much more. The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, our constant companion who though we don't see Him He is with us through the highs and lows of life bringing color with Him to an otherwise dark and dreary world. He not only illuminates the Words of Jesus to us, He also accentuates them. The Holy Spirit helps us to see through the eyes of faith and when we do a whole other world opens up to us, the world of possibility and hope. A world of color you could say. Thinking of color, when I read these lines below I immediately think of the difference the Holy Spirit makes in our lives.
 
"Color Everywhere"  
           
I used to see in black and white                                                                      
never something in between
wait'n on the love of my life
to come into my dreams
everything was shades of gray
never any blues of greens
I needed someone else to turn to
someone who could help me learn to see
all the beauty that was waiting for me
You put the blue back in the sky
you put the rainbow in my eyes
the silver lining in my prayers
and now theres color everywhere.....
 
 
Going into a brand new week I have a prayer for you, I pray you see color this week wherever your travels take you! I was re-reading an old favorite book of mine that said when a Muslim gets saved they see color for the first time. The commands of God are black and white and that’s how we should view them. Right and wrong are clearly spelled out in the bible yet there is something that brings color to even the black and white of God’s Word and that is the person of the Holy Spirit in our lives. When the Holy Spirit comes into our lives He comes like an artist with paint and brush in His hand. He brings dimension to the black and white, you might say, and then He adds color! That’s why the Holy Spirit is the illuminator, as He brings everything to light.
 
Invite the Holy Spirit into your day, invite Him to show you things you could not otherwise see. Never be afraid to say you are blind as when we confess that we just don't see the situation we are in clearly God is more than willing to fill us with His Spirit so that we can see. When the Holy Spirit opens our eyes there is color everywhere as the song sings,
 
I needed someone else to turn to
someone who could help me learn to see
all the beauty that was waiting for me
You put the blue back in the sky
you put the rainbow in my eyes
the silver lining in my prayers
and now there's color everywhere.....
 
Can you see it? I pray so!
