Reflection on pattern and abstraction of the subconscious

The Draw, the Pull

Much like gravity is this pull from the depths, the pull of my Creator. I see His fingerprints everywhere and long to gaze upon His face. Sometimes, rather often, I long to see His face greater than I long to dwell within the constructs of time and space. Thankfully, I know I am not alone in this feeling. Paul felt a similar way in his time.

Philippians 1:21-26 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (22) But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. (23) But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better;  (24) yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. (25) Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith, (26) so that your proud confidence in me may abound in Christ Jesus through my coming to you again. NAS

Although my “job” on this earth is not near the dimension of Paul’s, the Lord has called me to service which I faithfully and lovingly choose. Yet I continue to look forward to that day when I am free of the constraints of time and my body, and I can be surrounded and consumed by His glorious presence.
