Living in the Light of Love

Good Night, God!

Oh, if only we could see people, circumstances and our world in the light of Your Compassionate Love! I guess my prayer, God, is that our eyes and our hearts would be opened.

A friend confided in me this evening that if she had lots and lots of money she would set up a broadcasting station (or network like Ted Turner’s?) that just broadcast Good News.

Stories of real people doing good things, helping others, surmounting great odds, etc. I love that idea, God! Why hasn’t some billionaire thought of that? We humans need to be encouraged. Need to have our Hope built up.

I know the theologians talk about the Doctrine of Original Sin. And, it is true that we have to be taught not to grab the biggest piece of cake. Still, I kind of like to think of us as basically good — unless we have been damaged or had our growth stunted by lack of love. Frankly, I think most people do better than might be expected given their past. I think that’s You, helping us, God.

Maybe, God, it isn’t just having our eyes opened. Maybe it goes back to not holding on so tightly to so many Rights and Wrongs. Or maybe it is being aware of how many things pass through our visual field. We really don’t see much if we aren’t looking for it — or expecting it. Maybe, God, we could just realize that nothing is ever really easy. And that we all fail or as Saint Paul said, “Fall short of the Glory of God.”

Well, God, those are good words to go and fall asleep on. Please keep on keeping on working in me.
