Angels Still Here — Wanting to help us

Angel still on watch

Good Evening, God!

My wonderful husband Kit and I actually ate early enough to go for a walk around our block and this angel is still on duty. I love the Christmas Lights. I love the whole idea of Christmas. This morning our Pastor Brandon talked about how — coming as one of us — You had skin in the game. You know us . . . know how we feel! And, although as Creator You know ALL about us, it is comforting to know that You know how we feel. Know how hard it is to be human.

We want to be kind and loving. And You have designed us to be kind. When we see ONE child hurting we rush to help. But, when there are hundreds of thousands of hurting children — we go numb and helpless. We forget to ask You for help and for wisdom.

Actually, I fear that we forget about You most of the time. Forget? Or don’t know? Don’t know that You LOVE all of us.

Your love is the foundation of my life, God. It allows me to see myself and then forgive myself. And if I have forgiven myself then why not others? It allows me to  hope. Not because 7.5 billion people getting along in hard times . . . which are getting harder . . . is easy. Not at all!

But with Hope and a sense of Your Love — I can dare to try to contribute. Dare to speak for love and for the strange idea of blessing and praying for those who are “troubled” and “troubling”. That is such a radical idea, God! But, I rather think it is the only path that will work.

So, with Your help, I am committing myself –once again — to Your Way of Love.
