Yesterday evening my daughterI were taking a walk. There were very many lightsso our shadows were very long. She ran ahead so that her shadow would be longer than mine, so that she could say that she was taller than I.
I ran after hercovered her shadow with mine,she couldn’t see hers any more. I made gestures with my handsshe copied them. We looked funny!
Then I stepped asideher small shadow remained on its own, while my big one ‘won’. She hid inside my shadow again,the games continued.
It was lovely…realizing that when she was in my shadow, she could make much greater movements. Like when we are hidden in God. When we align ourselves in Him, we become giantscan do so much more than when we are alone. When we are hidden in Him, the surrounding world can’t tell us aparttrample on us. We are insurmountable.
If God be for me, who can be against me?? Let us therefore hide ourselves in Godenjoy His covering, protection, omniscience, omnipotence…all that He is, in our favor,in our battles. It will be easierbetter that way.
Apart from Him, we can do nothing. But within Him, all things are possible…exceedingly above what we could ever hope for, ask, think or imagine.
