A moment in time, a few months ago. Held in memory as time has moved on. Captured by the pressing of a shutter in the blink of an eye.
We each inhabit our own moments in time. Passing moments in the grand scheme of things. Sometimes captured and held consciously or unconsciously; ready to be activated!
We sometimes just need to give ourselves permission to rest in those captured moments, projected onto our own ‘inner screen’. Left to be considered and re-interpreted. The prompting of the Holy Spirit; the one who reminds and cajoles and whispers.
The words of the prophet Isaiah project into my consciousness as I write;’ The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand for ever.‘ (Isaiah 40, verse 8)
I have wobbly days, when nothing seems to make sense, and I seem to be adrift. But these words, despite their age (1700 years old!) seem to capture something. Not a static, ‘you will do this and won’t do that’, but a dynamic movement of God’s Holy Spirit in our hearts, souls and minds.
Think on these words of Isaiah, allow them to speak into your heart and mind. Be captured!
Peace be upon you and the journey you take.
