Truth of the Matter

I just heard an interior designer say, "Light is very, very important," and it got me thinking of all the times I've heard desperately enamored declarations of the value of light from artists, architects, photographers, and designers. I heard an artist say, "I need my natural light." I've heard actors portraying architects say, "Light... always the light!" and, my goodness, even in my fledgling brush strokes I've realized time and again how critical light is to any artistic expression in creating shade and contour.  Without light, there is nothing.

Y'all see where I'm going with this, don't ya? Yessiree and HALLELUJAH! From the mouth of intelligent beings - saved and unsaved - His praises ring...

GOD IS LIGHT!  What all artists, photographers, designers, and architects ardently desire and adore for the formation and completion of their precious work... is GOD! Yahweh! Jehovah! Abba! Elohim! Jesus!

The truth of the matter is ALL those blessed, creative people are saying, "God is very, very important"; "I need my God"; and "God... always God!"

Ha! I love it!

The whole of mankind was absolutely MADE for fellowship with Almighty God, and it's HIM we crave in all of our creative resource and substance! No matter what we do, no matter what we say, it all comes back to the truth of the matter: Without God, we're nothing.
