Something, beyond words to describe. I sensed the Spirit of God! The secret by which those people reached and cultivated my mind, and comforted my soul and body. Yet, I did not understand it at that moment of time. It all went right over my head because I did not know The Word of God! I had not meditated on the Word of God, I was ignorant of it.
I had gone through life unaware of the secret saving power of the Spirit of God, taking everything and everybody for granted without consideration of anything other than my own understanding of life, and the raw feelings of my emotions.
But, that morning, on the screen of my imagination, a beautiful Garden of Eden was displayed. In that Garden I saw those people that had helped me throughout my life as trees. From those trees hung as precious gems, the things or the “good traits” they possessed.
And all those gems were part of the treasure of their love and understanding.
And those things that were as precious as gems, were the pure and lovely the fine good things in others, the things you can praise God for and be glad about as it is written in the Book of Philippians, Chapter 4, verse 8, about which I had never thought before.
In that Garden of Eden I walked, bedazzled by the marvelous treasure of the love and understanding that had followed me all the days of my life, which I had taken for granted.
I picked up my pencil to write it all down. I did not know at the time that what I was about to write was in the Word of God! I was only describing what I was seen in that transitory moment, but, a year later, when I read the Scripture in the Book of Isaiah Chapter 59, it all fit together.
At that moment though, when I was walking in that field saturated with gems, I picked my pencil and my tattered tablet with my heart pounding in my head, loaded with emotional excitement, and I simply described what I saw when I wrote,
All of my life I have walked in the Field of Knowledge, with my eyes closed. I have been lost in that field, groping along, almost unattended.
And now, suddenly! I have opened my eyes and WOW! . . . What a wonderful, beautiful, and fabulously wealthy field that is!
