While at my desk studying and praying, I glanced out at my courtyard and saw birds playing in the birdbath, squirrels chasing one another up the trees and more birds on my bird feeder. Do they really know what is going on in the real world? That is the real world!! They choose to be joyous and play and be a part of God’s beauty. No, that is not being in denial by watching them but my prayer is to see more and more what God is seeing. Hatred and bitterness is not of the kingdom of God and perfect Love cast out all fear. We certainly cannot hear God if our thoughts are so filled with chaos.
Right here, right now God is with us and never leaves us. Psalm 13:5-6 states “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, for He has been good to me.” My part in all of this is always to love more and more which is the only way I can see the real world.
