“Jesus took with him, Peter, James and his brother John, and led them up a high mountain, where they were alone. Jesus’ appearance was changed before them: his face shown like the sun, and his clothes became white as snow.”
Have you ever wondered why a beautiful sunrise or sunset captivates us? Or why the sight of a beautiful scenery leaves us breathless? Well because we don’t see them often. These are things we purposely seek. Same thing with God, we would not see His beauty trapped in the mundane concerns of life. In order for us to see Him, to really see Him, we have to detach ourselves from the trappings of the ordinary and make a mighty effort to climb our own mountain of prayer. And from there, we have to purposely train our eyes to see where we can have a good and clear sight of Him. Do we see Him in our work, in our home, or in our current situation right now? If He’s not in any of these, we have to, with all our heart, seek Him until we find exactly where He is in our life. For it is only in finding Him that we can truly experience great joy.
