Remember when you were a kid and your mom or dad would say, “This world has gotten so out of control, we are surely in the last days!” – ??? I heard that a lot as a kid and recall thinking, “You’ve said that for years… Christ has not returned yet.”
Well, now I’m the adult and I’m saying, “This world has gotten so out of control, we are surely in the last days!” LOL! I imagine some reading this are saying, “You’ve said that for years… Christ has not returned yet.”
As I keep my eyes on the eastern skies, I catch a glimpse of steeples… pointing toward heaven, reminding all who take time to look that God still cares about us from His throne in Heaven. He is there, but He’s also here amongst us in the form of His precious Holy Spirit.
Once in a while we just need to be reminded that the steeples are not to be worshipped, but they point towards Heaven, where God is, and His Son Jesus sits at His right hand. When God gives the word, Jesus will return and this time He won’t come as an innocent little baby, but as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
You know I love steeples and you know why. I’ve written several poems in which they’ve spoken. Lucinda Berry Hill has written about them. For those of us keeping our lamps trimmed and our eyes open, they remind us to keep looking up!
We see Steeples in all seasons… Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. I love them all… the steeples for all seasons. ❤
We love Jacob, Deanna’s cat. Obviously, he’s a very wise and observant feline!
Here are a few photos we have not used with poetry – – – yet. 😉
No matter what the season, Steeples… some with crosses, some plain – stand tall and straight. It may seem strange that a steeple could “speak”. Well, they don’t – but God’s still small voice can definitely speak as I’m looking at a steeple – and thinking. It results in a poem usually, but sometimes it’s a Bible verse or other type of writing. There’s also a steeple poem about Independence Day & Thanksgiving. I can’t find them at the moment. I have an chronic condition that affects my ability to stay organized. 😀
The next time you see a steeple, say a prayer and be still. You may be surprised at what happens! 🙂
