Friends what ever the situation, despite how desperate the circumstance, regardless how deplorable the disaster that we are currently experiencing try to look through the clouds and gloom. I promise you will see the light! Even if it's nothing but a mere glimpse as those who call themselves Christians we know light when we see it. If it looks gloomy now, run to the light of Jesus Christ who is God in human form. If it looks gloomy now run to the light and every step you take your situation will get brighter and brighter. If it looks gloomy now in your life run to the word, run to the church, run to where you can find a renewal of life, run to GOD! God is calling us into constant relationship, real relationship not just an occasional date on Sunday morning, but daily walking
and talking with the Holy Spirit. Friends much is going on in our world and we wonder why things are the way they are, it's because the Church is so stuck the world that it's no longer making a difference because of a lack of real relationships with God. Sisters and Brothers we can change the world once we change ourselves and run to God for an intimate relationships leaving the gloomy past till we stand at last in the light of God's glory. The Gospel of John says it better than I could, let's look:
John 1:1-5 (NRSV)
Dear God help us to see your light at all time, enable us to hear your word always, and constantly call us into loving relationship with you. This we pray in the name of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
