In the old testament – the people of God would build altars to signify encounters with God. I think I want to use social media to help me remember and share these moments.
Lord bless me – bless me with your presence. Your overwhelming presence, that you may be with me wherever I go, and that I may only go wherever you go. I care for nothing else in this world, for it is all temporary. I do not need to be known, I do not need to accomplish great things, I do not need the security of people who love me. I only want your presence.
“Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.” But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” The man asked him, “What is your name?” “Jacob,” he answered. Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”
And now I call you Seraphim, for I see that you love the presence of the Lord.
“If we burn with love for the Creator only, his consuming fire will quickly transform us into the flaming likeness of the Seraphim.”
