Good morning, DearHeart.
In my bones, God Most High asks, “My Child, do you trust Me, even tho you aren’t yet meant to understand?”
When strange outcomes arise from serving well?
When best intentions to love well get twisted?
God asks us to review our choices of the day, and to be aware … “Have you made choices today that are wise – on behalf of others?”
If so, bless those choices.
Take a deep breath and ask your Creator to fill those choices with His Divine reasoning … with His Divine grace. Only He gives grace in full measure – the kind of grace that allows you and me to arise and shine from the “even tho” place where we feel slain. Disrespected. Devalued.
His grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better.
He is the hope that allows us to love, even when under attack. As you arise choose to leave love at every place you walk today,
at every doorway you pass,
with every one you see,
with each soul that crosses your mind –
And, send them a blessing.
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.”
Isaiah 60:1-2 ESV
Arise and shine.
