Saturday, March 9 – More Light

Could Be Lifted by Hafiz

If you knew the end of your story, nothing on

Any page—not one of your dramas, could bother

You as much.

 

If you knew the glorious end of your journey,

At least half of your attention could be lifted

From anything you can now focus on that may cause you pain.

 

His hand is like that, when it is realized near,

It will always turn your gaze in the direction

Of more light.

We don’t know the end of our story, but we do know God walks beside us throughout our journey.  Where in your life can you remember to allow God’s grace to turn your gaze in the direction of more light? 

Luke 13:31-35

At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, “Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.” He said to them, “Go and tell that fox for me, ‘Listen, I am casting out demons and performing cures today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish my work. Yet today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way, because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed outside of Jerusalem.’ Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! See, your house is left to you. And I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.’”
