I’m no jewel expert, but I think that one of the wonders of a well-cut precious stone is that it reflects light differently from different angles. The jeweller allows the crystal’s structure the freedom to show off its beauty.
Jess finished with a real gem this evening. It may look a little plain, but hold it up to the light, and it is fascinating what piercing wisdom is evident.
“You God, See Me”
You can read it as a statement of fact, and simply pass it by. It’s true, but it feels like a line gone astray from a poem.
But read it as an instruction. As an invitation.
Ah, you say, that’s a little different, but God sees everything, so ‘What’s uh the Deal?’
Yes, but it is an invitation to be seen by God, to be known, to be opened up to examination (judgement). Ordinarily, that’s the last thing you would want.
But, if you trust him, because you have come to know the security of his love, it is an invitation to be made holy, to worship and know God. You can only offer the invitation if you can say ‘You God’ – you’ve got to be acquainted personally.
You can also meditate on the the word ‘Me,’ and again you will see new facets.
Thanks Jess. A gem from a gem.
