While flying from Denver to Atlanta traveling from the family Christmas event in Phoenix, I looked out the plane window and was awed by the geometric shapes of land on the ground. A mishmash of concentric circles, squares and rectangles of land. They sun was bright and bold.
As we continued in flight, I noticed a shadow coming over the surface of the earth as going from light to dark:
We continued flying and the clouds got thicker then thinned out for a bit.
After this I continued looking and the clouds beneath us got thicker:
As I sit here in my window seat on our Southwest flight, I'm asking the Lord what this means. Here is what I believe He is saying to me:
The world as you knew it was bright and sunny. Things were moving along well as expected. A change is coming that feels like darkness is overtaking the land (the shadow I saw). It will seem dark for a time and there will be trouble.
Things will look brighter as the trouble thins out for a time (I looked and saw that the clouds were thinning out and sun was getting through).
Here is what I believe the Lord was saying to me: It will get darker but as you are flying above the clouds now, note that above the clouds and trouble, there is always light that comes from Me. I am your source of strength and endurance in this time. You need not worry. I will sustain and protect those I love and that love Me. You need to rise up above the darkness and remain in the light.
Like you are now above the clouds, I will keep you secure and safe while the world ignores the signs of the times. Continue to be a light to the world and you will be saved.
