After making it past the heavy traffic I dared to give a quick spray to my windshield. What!? What had I been afraid of? I could see clearly through the streaks in my windshield. So I thought, if it is better with streaks why don’t I go for a completely clean windshield? I held the lever down until my windshield was well doused. Amazing, so clear, and now the sunshine was a blessing not something to fight.
Yes, Amazing, just like God’s amazing forgiveness.
Just like that road spray I often don’t realize that my life is getting blurred from the world until suddenly I can’t see straight. Then I am frozen with fear of what it will look like to surrender to God’s forgiveness. Afraid He will want too much change and make my life a mess. (such silliness) Then I take that first step of faith and experience His sweet peace of knowing He makes my steps secure. After a short time I often realize I am still walking in and out of the shadows, why not step out into the light? As I surrender all, the clarity of God’s great love for me is like that sunshine brightly guiding me through my travels.
Thank you Lord! Thank you for being a light to my path and having forgiveness so quickly available. I don’t have to wait until my windshield’s view is completely blocked, but I can come to you with smallest sign of road spray, of worldly influence, and You are able to wash me clean!! Amen.
