Is it His Light we share?

Sunny skies.
If only our dispositions
could be as such
Words said lead down roadways
of ill content
You don't believe what another says
You weren't alert to hear
and elsewhere written copy
shows no indication
of something different

Seems to be
just like God's book
God's guiding Light
He gives us instructions
in His Word
through His messengers
for how we should live our lives

But we don't see
those guiding principles
and we don't hear
His words of wisdom
and if we do hear and see,
we don't understand

Jesus fed over 5,000
with 5 loaves of bread
and there were 12 baskets of leftovers

Jesus asks of us --
"Having eyes, do you not see?
and having ears, do you not hear?
and do you not remember?" (Mark 8:18)

"How is it you do not understand?" (Mark 8:21)

His Light shines for us
Yet our anger takes precedence
We do not see His love and mercy
We only see our own dismay and frustration

Satan's bow and arrow strikes
and our injury is the focal point

Not until we stop and listen
stop talking
stop thinking
and listen
do we come to understand

and then we are filled with sorrow
and our anger
is over our stupidity

How can we share His Light
that He has put inside us
if doom and gloom
is our only answer?
