As I was walking this morning, I had a mini revelation about my fave colour.
I absolutely love sea foam/pistachio/moss green.
And today, as I was quietly listening to my Abba, I heard about why it is suited to me, why I am drawn to it.
Sea foam is a mix of green (made up of blue & yellow) and gray (black & white).
The blue represents both the ocean of my tears, and my delight at water & sky. Blue purifies as it flows.
The yellow is the touch of sun my body craves, and the Son-light my entire being longs for.
Green is the life and growth colour, how God can grow new life from the seeds He waters and shines His light on to grow in His Presence.
The black represents the dark places that need to be uprooted, the white the purity God brings to the mix.
And the gray? The times where I could not see beyond the storms, when God broke through and let His light brighten the dark times, and the gray we can find ourselves overwhelmed by when we take our eyes off of Him.
All this makes up my favorite colour.
When I wear it, I feel more like His daughter. I sense His closeness, and the pleasure He longs to reveal to me, His beloved.
I feel the prettiness and purity God sees when He looks at me.
People around me notice the difference when I wear this color, without knowing why.
So, I will continue to love my favorite color in the various hues I wear or decorate with, for it draws me closer to the One who absolutely adores me, and would do anything for me….which He has, and continues to do.

What colour helps you draw closer to Him? Have you ever thought about that before?
