glimmer of light

Saturday April 4th, Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" There are times when we feel alone and abandoned.  On the cross, Christ faced the total abandonment of our love that sin represents.  When did you last feel totally alone or Abandoned?  Christ understands.  When did you last feel forgotten and misunderstood?  Christ understands.  When did you last feel used and abused?  Christ understands.  Often when we feel most alone, it is not that God is absent, but rather that we are in such a hole that all we can see is darkness.  Off in the distance there may be a glimmer of light, but we refuse to acknowledge it.  Find a copy of the poem footsteps, read it.  I know it is well worn and schmaltzy, but there are times it is still worth re-reading.   Remember your alone time, and know that God was with you then and will be with you in your next alone time, and always. Now read the 23rd psalm.
