Today as I relax in the sunshine, I’m perusing various magazines I have yet to read.  I find the advertisements most entertaining as they allure one to procure various news products.  They are presented as importantly as the featured articles.  In delving into these worldly images, one ad is designed in various shades of teal color, just like I chose to recently spruce up my dining room. 

I wonder, what is teal and does it have meaning?  Google promptly satisfies my curiosity saying, “Teal is a sophisticated shade of turquoise representing trustworthiness and reliability.” 

A biblical scholar even states that teal is God’s favorite color and that it promotes the divine, spiritual advancement and majesty.  WOW!  If true, this must be revelation as stated in Scripture as in the “River of God” flowing with sanctification, healing and the birth of the new Jerusalem. 

“There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.”

–Psalm 46:4

The thought of the “River of God,” whether it is teal or not, welcomes all to the assurance that the inhabitants of heaven live in gladness and prosperity.

“Do not remember the former things nor consider the things of old.  Behold, I will do a new thing. Now, it shall spring forth; shall you not know it?  I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

–Isaiah 43: 18-19 

I am more encouraged by my teal walls as I learn to flow more deeply into God’s river.  I hope you are encouraged to do the same.  Have a marvelous new week.

God gives us a glimpse of I AM in the sun, weather, nature and the human race whether or not we connect to the Divine Source.

I am encouraged to share this divine dialogue here to thank Him for a good life…Jesus first, others second and myself last.

I would love to hear about your thoughts on God in your life.

There were three friends…and the first chose to reconcile those who were fighting against each other, as it is said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.”  The second friend chose to visit the sick.  The third went to live in prayer and stillness in the desert.

Now in spite of all his labors, the first could not make peace in all men’s’ quarrels, and in his sorrow he went to the one who was serving the sick and found him also disheartened.

So they went to see the one who was living in stillness and prayer and told him their difficulties.  After a short silence, he poured water into a bowl and said to them, “Look at the water,” and it was disturbed.  He said, “Look again,” and they could see their faces reflected in the still water.

Then he said, “It is the same for those who live among men; disturbance prevents them from seeing their faults; but when a man is still, then he sees his failings.”

A wise telling from the Desert Fathers.
