Light in the Darkness
Today's world seems to be going crazy with no end in sight. Every time I open the news something evil is happening in the world. Perhaps this evil was happening all the time before but we were shielded from it before today's digital age. In either case, it's everywhere. The list of crimes reported in the past six months on the news would be headline news for years 40 years ago, but, today sound like just another day.
To say that darkness is growing in this generation would be an understatement. The world needs light and needs it fast. Just what is light though? How can I make a difference? Lately, I feel like turning off every form of media just to keep from having a panic attack.
Like it or not, it's the world we live in. I want to make a difference. The best way I've found today is by giving. Giving to others in need, giving to my spouse, giving to God, and giving when it hurts. Unconditional love IS the light that shines brightly in the darkness. Nothing can stop the light from shining; not even the worst evil in the world.
I remember the song 'Power of Love' in the eighties. I loved that song. It wasn't just the beat or the sound, but the message. There is POWER in love.. power to change a person's life and power to change a world. Even when darkness is surrounding me as in the picture below, love will always find a way. Jesus, who later set the example, said, 'no greater love has a man than this; to lay down his life for his friends'.
My prayer is this... Lord, let me be that example today and not focus on the noise of the evil one in this world. Let me be a light and share the power of love with those around me..
Amen and good night..
