Lately all I have wanted to read and learn about are the saints. Why this insatiable thirst?
Is it because my prayer has been, “Please lead us Home” and my eyes are being opened to the ones who can show the way?
Maybe, but this morning I started wondering if He has opened my eyes for another reason. Maybe He wants me to know that I know a saint and he wants me to be able to truly see her, see Him, see her, see Him.
Do we know when we are in His presence? Do we really see Him shining through others? Can we get past the exterior and the good works to really know when He is living in another?
I am not sure that I know when I am in His presence. I am not sure that I would have known Him, but I want to, I long to know Him.
Despite His Majesty, Glory, Wonder and Power, He is bending down to show me.
Look around my friends…. you probably know a saint too. The saints are here with us, helping us, quietly guiding us.
They haven’t gone straight to heaven, they turned from the open gates because they know that it isn’t truly heaven until we have all made it. He wants all of us, they want His will… they want all of us.
The first truly will be last as they continue returning to lift up the rest of us!
