God's Kingdom on earth - a foretaste of the heavenly kingdom.
Things combine against us, to cause us to forget that when we come to Him we come to a place beyond the reach of earth's Darkness and all of Earth's clouds.
Our battle is against the shadows caused by earthly clouds,
against the shadows of earthly Fears and Doubts,
against the shadows of Apathy and Conformity,
against the shadows of earthly Comforts and Ambitions.
Again, the cloudlessness of heaven is reflected in the Kingdom of God on earth.
The rest of heaven is there also,
and the certainties of heaven are all about us.
Somedays we will have to summon every bit of our strength, and extend every atom of our determination, to free ourselves from earthly influences.
But we must do it if we are not to lose our contact with
Without God's working in and through our lives we are condemned to an existence bound forever to the painful limitations of earth.
Let us arise to seek and find day by day,
time after time - through all our times on earth,
the Cloudlessness of God..
