A Light At The End of The Tunnel

Things are not always what they seem. 
People are not always how they seem. 
Words do not always mean what they seem. 
How are we to know what's real and what's not? 
How do we navigate the waters of life when we can't see the rocks?

Questions and doubts plague us on a daily basis, if we're honest about it.  Who among us has all the answers?  

I had a new little boy in my second grade class many years ago, and no matter what question I asked, he'd wave his hand wildly in the air to be called upon.  When I called on him, he would always answer, "Jesus."  One day privately I asked him why he did this.  He replied, "Well, at church they say Jesus is the answer to everything!"

Of course his childish interpretation to what he had heard was cute, but I got to thinking....what if we could discipline ourselves in every circumstance, in every challenge, to turn to Spirit?  If this was our baseline response, wouldn't the world be a much saner place?  A less fearful place?  A less daunting place?

When we feel like we're in a dark tunnel and the only light at the end of it is an oncoming train, perhaps we can gather our strength and turn to that power within us.  Maybe, when people act unfairly or treat us poorly, we can remember to see them through the eyes of God.  Even when the river of life appears to have submerged rocks in our path, sometimes we might be able to remember the Real Truth of who we are.  PERHAPS?   MAYBE?  SOMETIMES?  How about replacing these words with ALWAYS and FOREVER?

Mother/Father God, with strength I turn always to your Presence within me and my way is made clear.

The Joy of the Lord is My Strength – Nehemiah 8:10

We have both worked as hospice chaplains and had our own award-winning live talk radio show, and cable TV show, plus we facilitated a gang truce in a large city of the southwest.
