Do we look for the Son everywhere?

"...Let the peace of God rule in your hearts..."(Colossians 3:15)

"For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting. And His truth endures to all generations." (Psalm 100:5)

with God

We may find
it easy
to meditate
and pray
and give thanks
behind closed doors

but then

our refuge
of God's
strength and protection


We exit
and come face to face
with the reality
of distractions


The distractions
are everywhere

We fail to see
Our life is centered
on the negative --
and irritation
and frustration

We do not praise
our Father in Heaven

We are not thankful
for ALL that comes our way

We do not look
for the positive
in every situation

Our emotions run us ragged
Up and down

We do not see the Sun / Son Rising
We do not see the Light
of His Presence
saturating the whole earth

Somewhere it is sunny

Somewhere the Light of the Day is bright

Somewhere God's Light is shining upon those who strive to do His will

Somewhere annoyances do not roam, but peace settles

Somewhere His Light shines in the darkest dark

Somewhere another will know Him, will come to be His

Somewhere another will die, persecuted
by people
who lack understanding,
who do not see the truth, God's Truth,
who only see and understand their own truth

It is God's Truth that endures.
ALL will come to know
and all will come to bow
and the peace of God will rule.
