“We are the light of the world. We are a city on a hill. We are the light of the world, and we gotta, we gotta, we gotta let our light shine.” – Kari Jobe
And that is exactly what Gray Godwin did wherever he was…. Let the light of Jesus shine through him! Do you notice how everything around him is black and white, but he is in FULL COLOR. This is how he lived his life here on earth and now how he spends eternity with Jesus. He stood out in a crowd. The character of our Most High God was sealed by the Holy Spirit in Gray. Overcoming adversity and embracing life because of his firm foundation in Jesus is his testimony!
So for us who remain here on earth, what do we do? A sweet friend shared with me that we put our right foot in front of our left, and eventually our heart will catch up. I’m not sure if my heart will ever catch up, but I am reminded of what Jesus said to His disciples in His darkest hour, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41. So, we will continue to pray. And what about when we don’t know what to pray? The apostle Paul tells us in Romans 8:26 “…the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.” My heart and flesh cry out with groans, and my God can interpret that? What an amazing God!
So I will pray… I will groan… and I will worship. Your Presence is Heaven to me Lord! It is in Your Presence that heaven and earth collide, and we can join Gray in worshiping our King. Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty! We bring you a Sacrifice of Praise. We surrender our mind, will, and emotions to you God and say, Spirit within us RISE UP!
